Antonine celebrate double-winning season

Written by  Antonine BC

Antonine under-16s won the Dunbartonshire FDL league after Drumchapel United failed to win at Lochgilphead. This completed a double for Antonine, who triumphed in the League Cup final in June. 

"It's a great achievement playing some great football with some great performances - most notably Lochgilphead away and Oban at home. The small 17-player squad was stretched to the limit at times but every player is worthy of a winners medal by doing their bit. The coaches would like to thank the players for their effort, and the parents andsupporters for the large numbers cheering us on every week," coach Kevin Kelly told Youth Football Scotland.

The team were awarded with the trophy after an Antonine 16s v Antonine Legends friendly match on Saturday. The under-16s won the match 8-5, with Mark Sweeny scoring twice and Owen Gallacher, Steven MacIver, Chris Donaghy, Calum Maxwell and Dom Cairney. Kelly was delighted to score three goals against the team he coaches, with Mikey Hutton and Raymy Maxwell grabbing two more for the legends. 11-year-old Ryan Kelly grabbed the man of the match award. 

The annual presentation dance followed in the evening with the much-coveted awards being handed out. Adam Boyle won the top scorer award, with Scott Hutton picking up the player's player of the year. Danny Hamilton was the supporter's and coaches' player of the year as well as picking up the most man of the matches throughout the season. 

It is a well-deserved break now for Antonine, before coming back in a few weeks to prepare for their move to the Paisley & District YFL next season.
