YOUTH REPORTS

2003 – Talbot 4-5 Beith. The boys were by far the better team and didn’t get the rewards they deserved. Beith scored inside the first minute with a long range hit and hope effort that caught everyone out. John Johnstone equalised with an effort from distance with his unflavoured right foot. Beith then scored from a free kick that Jack Jamieson parried and Beith tapped in. It was then 3-1 from a free kick that looked a great tackle and a harsh decision. The second half Beith broke the offside trap to curl in a good finish that Cody Bottell did well to somehow manage to get a hand to. Talbot somehow found themselves 4-1 down yet had been by far the better team. The boys then dug deep and showed what they’re all about and kept at Beith pressing and passing and moving all over the pitch. Captain Gavin withers brought the boys back into it when he scored from a free kick. Cameron McBride then came up from right back and scored from two corners to make it 4 each. Talbot were turning the screw. Michael Kane was then denied a stone wall penalty when he was brought down inside the six-yard box from the back right in front of the referee. With the clock running down, Talbot were dominating and there was only looking like one winner. But Beith hit another long distance effort from nowhere which hit the back of the net to decide the tie. It was hit perfectly and the goalkeeper had no chance. Sharing man of the match were Cameron McBride and Logan Murray. The boys play Caley away on Saturday.

 

2006 – Both Tigers and Boswell were at home this week against Stewarton Annick. Both teams were a bit off the pace this week compared to games lately but still some good football at times. Stewarton were very well organised and proved to be a tough side to play our normal passing football against.  A bit more effort from our boys at times this week would have had its rewards.
