2001 – Wednesday night, Hurlford BC v Auchinleck Talbot. It was a hard game with both teams eager for a win unfortunately the score doesn’t justify the performance and effort displayed from Talbot. Goals came from Jamie Conn -1 and Conan Mackin -1. Man of the Match went to Dylan McConnell.
Saturday, Auchinleck Talbot 5-2 Tass Thistle. Great performance today against a strong and very physical team. Talbot had the game under control and showed their strength going forward and achieved a well-deserved win. Goals came from Justin Barr -1 Rhys Griffin -1 Scott Whalen -1 Jamie Conn -1 Craig Hall -1. Man of the match went to Lewis Bell.
2003 – The team played brilliantly against a Caledonian team who beat them twice last year in close games. The boys played football all over the park. The goalkeeper dealt with everything comfortably and the defense was solid. The midfield was full of running and effort and they dominated possession. Another two goals from Josh Jones, who had his hat trick harshly taken by a dubious offside decision. The boys are away to Irvine Meadow next Saturday.
2005 – On Saturday morning we were at The Old Racecourse Ayr for the match against Valspar United. The weather was perfect for football and Talbot got off to a perfect start with two goals through Cody Gibson in the first ten minutes. They were totally dominant with some great attacking football which lead to Calum Wilson scoring the third. Talbot made a few changes which seemed to disrupt their momentum and Valspar Utd quickly came back into the game with two goals and some great saves from the Talbot keeper Jack Scott. Talbot settled and came back into the game with another two goals before half time from Fraser Hume and Kyle Bone and a few near misses from Ewan MacMillan. Talbot started the second half the way they started the first and were totally dominant and played some great football through defence from Josh Soutters and Kelvin Mouser, through midfield from Darren Jamieson up to attack which led to another five goals from Jay Sharp, Fraser Hume, Calum Wilson and two Ronaldo like free kicks coming from Francis McGhee. Valspar Utd managed to get a consolation goal near the end of the match. Another great performance from the 2005s.
2006 – Both our Boswell and Tigers teams were away to Troon teams on Saturday. The Tigers had a tough game at Troon Thistle but played well in spells. Boswell were exceptional against Toon Juniors, with great team work and plenty of passing and moving and a deserved hat-trick for Mason McNeillie.
2007 – Game against Cumnock on Saturday. It was a tight game throughout. We played some very patchy football first half but picked it up in the second half and started to move the ball a bit quicker and put some decent moves together. Need more work rate off the ball though to give us options going forward and to stop getting caught out of position defensively. Again there was a lack of composure in front of goal which will only get better. There were some vastly improved performances from some of the boys, so hopefully they continue to show the same determination and they’ll develop much quicker. Special mention this week goes to Callan Smillie for tackling and forward passing.
2008 – The boys played at Prestwick on Sunday against Dean Thistle x2, Nith Valley and Greenan. Both teams displayed good passing and team play resulting in good results, the hard work put in on the training field came together today and some of the football was a joy to watch.
2009 – The boys enjoyed their first game at Prestwick with some nice forward play at times with Callum Greenlees in particular shining with some nice goals. At training this week, we will be working more on the defensive side of the game.
