Milton Reds
Stirling Albion Junior Academy (White)
Under 15s
On Saturday 13th October Milton Red’s 1998’s under 15’s, played host to Stirling Albion Junior Academy (white) in their fifth League match of the season. Milton went into the match with their one hundred percent league and Cup record still intact. Milton were without four players due to injury and had only one substitute available on the line.

The match started with Milton taking early control and forcing Stirling on to the defensive. After a number of close efforts on the Stirling goal, the opening goal finally came in the twenty third minute and it was mid fielder Ross Leary who finished off a great piece of play when he fired past Aiden McDowell to open Milton’s account. Milton totally dominated play and went further ahead through top scorer Callum Brown when he added two more goals to this season’s tally. Milton were dealt a blow in the final minutes of the first half when forward Michael Ross had to be replaced due to injury. The first half closed with the score three nil in favour of Milton.

Half Time: Milton Reds 3-0 Stirling Albion Junior Academy (White)
Milton restarted with substitute Jack Logan replacing the injured Michael Ross and Jack took only five minutes to increase Milton’s lead when he fired in a great left foot shot passed the Stirling keeper. In the twelve minute Jack then turned provider as he played in strike partner Callum Brown for Callum’s third goal and Milton’s fifth of the match. Stirling Albion were still working hard and threatening on the break and from one such break away, forward Dylan Stevenson managed to get free of his marker and lob the outrushing Ryan Hart in the Milton goal to score a well earned opener for his hard pressed side. Milton’s reply was swift as they scored within a minute of the restart with Jack Logan again netting. After a spell of almost continual pressure on the Stirling goal, Milton were awarded a penalty when forward Callum Brown was brought done in the box with an illegal challenge. Callum got up and handed the ball to Jack inviting him to take the kick as he was on his hat-trick. Jack expertly dispatched his spot-kick to complete his hat-trick. In the closing ten minutes, there were two more goals for Milton with strike partners Callum and Jack both adding one apiece. 

Although Milton were missing a few players who would normally be in their starting line up, this was another fine team display by Milton, as they kept possession well and Stirling had no answer to their passing and movement. Credit also went to the Stirling side who worked really hard throughout and never let their heads go down under the constant pressure from Milton.

There will be no matches next week due to school holidays.
Full Time: Milton Reds 9-1 Stirling Albion Junior Academy (White)
