YOUTH REPORTS

2001 Auchinleck Talbot 0 v 4 Irvine Meadow. Disappointing result for Talbot as the lads appeared to be holding their own at half time with no goals from either side. The second half proved to be a bit more challenging but things just didn’t go the way Talbot had hoped for resulting in a defeat. Man of the Match Greig Houston.

2006 Both Tigers and Boswell were away from home this week against teams we have not had much luck against in the past. Tigers were away to Troon thistle Jags and Boswell were at AC Irvine. Both teams were outstanding and the effort from every boy was fantastic. Good teamwork and a huge desire to get results throughout the teams. A mixture of good passing football, great goalkeeping and excellent goals at the weekend was a pleasure to watch. Great day all round for the 2006’s and topped off with a nice hat trick from Ryan McCarron.

2007 The boys were at home to Cumnock on Saturday. An excellent all round display from the boys which has added to their recent run of good form. The attacking play was a joy to watch. The steady defending and building from the back made it easy for the attacking display. Some good goals scored. Could have been a few more but the fact that they were creating the chances was still pleasing. It was a well-mannered game between the two teams with a good desire from both sides to play good football. Special mention this week goes to Callan Smillie for passing and scoring two good goals.
