TALBOT BOYS CLUB NEWS.
2001 – Hurlford United 1 Auchinleck Talbot 6. Another 3 points again on Saturday, although Talbot got off to a slow start. They upped their game and dominated the majority of the match, a lot of chances were created for more goals but well done to the United keeper. goals came from Lewis Hood -1 Scott Whalen -2 Justin Barr -3 man of the match went to Justin Barr.
2003 – No game.
2005 – This week Talbot were away to Dean Thistle in Kilmarnock. Unlike last week Talbot were the team that came out fighting right from the start with some lovely passing football. This was rewarded with a well worked goal and a great pass from Taylor Fowler which split the defense for Calum Wilson to rifle a shot past the despairing Dean Thistle keeper. Talbot continued to play some great football but against the run of play Thistle scored an equaliser. This took Talbot by surprise and just before half time Thistle took the lead. Talbot started the second half with loads of energy and pressed the Dean Thistle defense with their keeper pulling off some great saves. Talbots tenacity payed off when Cody Gibson scored the equaliser. The two teams were so well matched with play going from one attack to the other. Both defenses were holding up well until Dean Thistle had a break through and scored to win the game. Both sets of parents complemented both teams in how well they played and enjoyed a pulsating and entertaining game. Well done both teams.
2006 – Both Boswell and Tigers were away to Grange Academy, Kilmarnock on Saturday to play Bellfield. Both teams played really well against tough opposition and the boys efforts and determination showed throughout. Again we were short of numbers and the boys didn’t get a rest but nobody complained. Goals from Lewis McFadzean, Callum Holmes and two goals
from Kiain Robb. We are looking to add one or two experienced boys to our squad. Contact [email protected] for further information/trial.
2007 – The boys played against Cumnock on Saturday at Auchinleck Academy. It was a cracking game of football with decent spells of play from both sides. Effort was good and they showed great composure on the ball at times. They lost their shape slightly as the match went on however that was more tiredness than anything else. There was good movement off the ball but the final pass needs to improve from us as their awareness needs to be better. It was a pleasing display though, with a special mention for Braydan Gooden for his positioning and bringing the ball out from the back.
2008 – Both teams played at Caley parks against three Ayr Boswell teams and Greenan. A mixed bag from the boys this week. There was some good forward play and they were trying to play football the right way but sometimes they were caught out of position when defending which the boys have been improving on recently. When it all clicks the football is a joy to watch.
2009 – The boys were at Irvine playing this week in some glorious sunshine and what a day it turned out to be. All of the boys are really starting to click together and some nice football being played. A good few goals being scored by both teams. Murray McRoberts being singled out this week for his willingness to go in there where it might hurt and ensuring goals come from this. Well done boys.
