Under 16's

On Saturday 28th September Milton Red’s 1998’s under 16’s, played their seventh League fixture of the season.  The match started with Milton dominating the early play and they opened their account in the second minute of play when forward Hamish Anderson fired home from a Ryan Beyer pass. After continuous pressure Milton increased their lead when mid-fielder Ross Leary fired home in off the upright. Milton won a series of corners as they poured forward and the Stirling goal was under a constant bombardment with home keeper Adam Thomson performing heroics to keep his team in the match. On a rare breakaway, Milton’s defence failed to deal with a clearance and keeper Liam Stirling was beaten by a high lob from wide right which just went in to the net via the underside of the crossbar. Milton continued to attack and Stirling managed survived the onslaught until the referee’s whistle ended the first half. The first half closed with Milton only one goal ahead despite the constant pressure on the home goal.
Half Time: Stirling Albion Junior Academy 1-2 Milton Reds
After the restart Milton continued to dominate and forced corner after corner as they sought the goals to finish off the challenge from their plucky opponents. In the 13th minute of the second half Leary struck again after driving forward from mid-field and unleashing a powerful shot passed the unprotected Thomson in the home goal. Just sixty seconds more had elapsed when Leary completed his hat-trick. After receiving the ball from a throw-in Leary drove along the bye line and beat Thomson from a narrow angle. With 20 minutes played Thomson could only parry a fierce drive from Milton’s Callum Brown and Jonathon McMenemy was on hand to fire home the rebound. In the 35th minute Brown was again the provider when he dribbled passed the Albion defence then cut the ball back to substitute Bobby Smith who lashed the ball passed the diving Thomson for Milton’s sixth and final goal.
The match finished with the result a fine six goals to one victory for the away side.  Milton’s victory was earned by another good team performance with the entire squad all doing well but a special mention went to midfielder Leary who had this season failed to net but now he has fired in three in one match and looks ready to improve on his impressive tally from last season. Stirling Albion’s man of the match was without doubt keeper Adam Thomson who performed magnificently throughout. Milton’s next opponents will be Riverside Reds who are currently top of the table after eight straight victories in this season’s league campaign. The match is scheduled for 10am this Saturday 5th October at Braehead Park.
