U19’s – Auchinleck Talbot v Bonnyton match postponed due to waterlogged pitch.
2003 – Stewarton 0-8 Auchinleck Talbot
Zac Mathieson opened the scoring from a corner and claimed his first goal for the club and set the team on their way. At 1-0, the Talbot goalkeeper, Michael Nolan, pulled off an unbelievable save and an important one as at 1-1 the game could have changed in Stewarton’s favour. Talbot took heart from that save and Zak Smith made it 2-0 with a header at the back post after good work out wide to get the cross in. Talbot then hit both posts as Kyle hit one which rebounds to Zak who hit the other. Not long after though Zak got his second and sent the lads in at half time comfortable at 3-0.
Into the second half and Talbot found another gear and played with real flair and determination. Kyle Shankland hit a double after moving inside from the wing to play as the target man and the teams steam train, Nicolas Jakab, also bagged a double. The game was put to bed when Michael Kane popped one in from distance. Talbot are now into both cup semi-finals. Man of the match was Michael Nolan.
