Today Grahamston BC took the field against Dunipace Juniors in their 2nd game of the FVDA League cup sectional stages. The team kept its now for than familiar shape of 3-5-2 but Grahamston started with 2 debutantes in the shape of Shane Smith and Rhys Campbell starting their first game for the club. 
The Grahamston players have been asked to adapt alot of times already this season and today was no different with Steven Dunseath starting at right mid and Derrick Hunter starting on the left. Robbie Fortheringham Grahamston's new captain started up front along with Alister MacDonald. 
As the game kicked off Grahamston took a little time to settle but once they had they showed how as a team they can adapt in position and the roles asked of them by their coaches. Grahamston opened the scoring with what seemed a bit of a dubious and soft penalty after Robbie Fortheringham had been taken out by the defender. Jae Convery was given the task of spotting the ball and stepped up to slot the ball home giving the oppositions goal keeper absolutely no chance. 
Grahamston soon began to play with conviction and the passing and movement within the team was a times a joy to watch. Grahamston added a 2 and third coming from Robbie Fortheringham grabbing a brace. The first came from a great assist from Derrick Hunter feeding Robbie in on goal who lashed the ball high out of the goal keepers reach, his second and goal of the day came again from an assist from Jae Convery, Robbie took the ball with his back to goal and as he turned the defender took 2 strides and again curled the ball majestically around the goal keeper into the far corner. 
The fourth came from Jae Convery grabbing the opportunity to also get his brace by latching on to a loose ball that had broke off the defender he passed the ball into the net. 
The fifth came from a through ball to Alister MacDonald who met the ball sweetly to make it 5. At no time did Grahamston look as if they had actually got out of second gear but the football they played at times was exceptional.
Half Time: Grahamston BC 5-0 Dunipace Juniors
Team talk was about trying to keep the same tempo and keeping the ball with possession football but stop trying to play the ball forward to early. Robbie Dalziel replaced Alister MacDonald, Blair Hastings replaced Stevie Dunseath and Ross Meikle repalced Marco Archimio . 
The second half kicked off and immediately Grahamston were on the attack but unfortunately for them them the final ball was lacking as their delivery didn't seem to find their attacking players. Conall Mccallion and Jamie Millar replaced Rhys Campbell and Derrick Hunter. 
Again Grahamston kept control of the play but couldn't build on their already convincing lead. The game fell in to a bit of a nothing affair but Grahamston kept total control and possession of the ball without getting out of second gear. 
Grahamston however, did add to their lead when Robbie Dalziel won a free kick just outside the box on the left. Dean Muir stepped up and with a floated ball to the far post the goal keeper was unable to hold the ball and ended up punching the ball into his own net. After some intense and long winded debate the committee decided the goal was Dean's so he can now rest easy knowing the goal is his. 
The game was played out to a finish with Grahamston being unable to add to their lead. This was understandable as the game had been won in the first Grahasmton were able to make further changes to give all players equal game time today. 
Today Grahamston showed just how good a team they can be by not even getting out of second gear they created six good goals and showed superb possession.
A pleasure to watch today Grahamston keep up the hard work and welcome to Rhys and Shane who never looked out of place at anytime.
Full Time: Grahamston BC 6-0 Dunipace Juniors
