On Saturday, Milton Red’s 1998’s played their sixteenth league fixture of the season. Milton went into the match only one point behind their opponents Milan Boys Club who topped the league after defeating previous league leaders Riverside Blue in a midweek match. Milan were confident going into the match as they held a perfect record of nine victories from nine home matches for the season.

Milan started the match well and had most of the possession during the opening play, without really creating any clear cut goal scoring opportunities. Milton forward Callum Brown came closest to breaking the deadlock when he ran in and rose to crash a thundering header off the Milan crossbar. Milton then increased the tempo and in the 22nd minute the opening goal for Milton came from Cameron Doyle when he fired home after Milan failed to clear from a Milton corner. On the half hour mark Milton’s Ryan Beyer fired high into the net from fully 35 yards with the Milan keeper helpless to stop his powerfully struck shot. Minutes later Milton went three up when Callum Brown broke forward on the right and fired an inch perfect shot over the stranded keeper high into the far corner of the net. Just before half time, Milton captain and central defender Jason Walker increased Milton’s tally when he headed home powerfully from a corner. The half time whistle came as relief to the Milan players who were now looking desperately for a way to stem the tide from the in-form Milton visitors.

Half Time: Milan BC 0-4 Milton Reds

Milton decided to restart the second half with the same eleven players who ended the first half as they remembered the previous league match against Milan when they introduced three of their substitutes after the break while leading by three goals to one and then only just managed to win four three while under pressure for the last few minutes of the match.

No mistakes this time as Milton soon increased their lead through defender Andrew Hendry when he struck home from the edge of the penalty area when Milan only half cleared another Milton corner. With the game secure, Milton gradually introduced their substitutes. The changes didn’t cause Milton to lose their shape and they continued to keep their control of the match as the Milan side fought in vain to stem the flow towards their goal. Milton added two more goals through Michael Ross and Declan Valentine.

The Coaches from both sides congratulated both teams for the way they both played a fine passing game but Milan were disappointed to lose their previous 100% home record and also top spot in the table to Milton Reds.

Milton’s next opponents will be Riverside Blue in a quarter final cup match on Wednesday 8th May at Braehead park.

Full Time: Milan BC 0-7 Milton Reds
