Written by


Renfrew Victoria 2000s
Harmony Row
Under-14s PJDYFL
Kirklandneuk playing fields
15 April 2014
After a tight opening 10 minutes to the game renfrew vics created the first real chance after some neat passing on the left hand side and a lovely
through ball split the Harmony defence resulted in the right sided midfielder being clean through on goal only to hit a tame shot that was easily saved.

Midway through the first half, Renfrew Vics opened the scoring after a corner kick that was initially defended well but landed on the edge of the box and
was flighted into the top corner by a Renfrew midfielder giving the keeper no chance.
With 10 mins of first half to go Harmony were reduced to 10 men after an off the ball incident led to their player being shown a straight red card
Despite lots of pressure and good play by Renfrew it was Harmony who scored in the last minute of the first half to make it 1-1.
Half Time: Renfrew Vics 1-1 Harmony Row
Second half report goes here.The second half started in the same vein with renfrew having most of the play and creating a few chances. Despite this it took a mistake by the harmony goalkeeper who kicked a goal kick stright to the renfrew striker who after a good initial touch calmy slotted the ball into the corner of the net, 2-1.

After a few more chances and general good play by Renfrew it was against the run of play that harmony equalised, after some scrappy play in the middle of the park the ball dropped to a harmony player whos shot was unstoppable as it flew into the top corner,2-2

Despite being stunned by rhe equalising goal Renfrew composed themselves and went in search of the winner. After some neat midfield play Renfrew
worked the ball into the box where the renfrew vics striker was hauled down. No hessitation from the ref as he awarded a penalty kick. The renfrew midfielder stepped up and slotted the ball into the net, 3-2 
Minutes later the ref blew for full time 
In summary the game was another closely contested game between 2 very good teams  
Full Time: Renfrew Vics 3-2 Harmony Row

Locos gear up for Bonnybridge test

Written by
Colony Locos manager Alan Calder has admitted that there has been a bit of a buzz in the town in the lead-up to his side's Scottish Cup semi-final against FC Bonnybridge. Calder said: "The Locos have helped us organise the game and they've done a lot of work in the lead-up to the game, we've just been promoting it to start with and we've received lots of good feedback from people and also all of the other squads and also local teams including Amateur and Junior teams.
"It's a difficult one because the town is so buzzed for the game and i'm trying to keep the players on their toes for the league games however the guys are looking forward to it and so am I.
"The Scottish Cup is something that means a lot to me, I actually played in a Scottish Cup semi-final when I was a youngster for Colony and that was also at Harlaw Park.
"I lot of the players that i've spoke to are speaking about what type of crowd that we're expecting however on the day everybody will be there to support you however first and foremost, you worry about the guy that's next to you and the guy that's going to be up against you.
"Those are the things that matter on the day, everybody that's there on the day is going to be backing you so your not there to worry about them, your there to worry about the guy from FC Bonnybridge."
Locos approach the semi-final without a win in their last 3 outings and Calder added about the last couple of weeks when he said "The defeat against Stonehaven was probably hard to take as they played really well, 1st 20-25 minutes we played some fantastic football and then we seemed to panic.
"I think that we've been so used to winning games that we seemed to put into our heads that we're unbeatable, the disappointing thing about Stonehaven was that we lost our composure.
"We were 4-1 down at one stage against Banchory so everybody started looking at each other to try and drive the team forward again and then in the last 10 minutes we were absolutely superb and actually had enough chances to win the game, when your fighting on so many fronts with the league and also with the Scottish cup on the horizon then there's so many things to think about.
"The guys at this age have got University applications to think about, working, and there will be a lot of 18th birthday parties so there's a lot of things on these guys plates, what we've always said to them all is what they get out of football is what they put into it.
"At this stage of the season, we're on schedule for where we want to be and we're ahead in some things, we set out at the start of the season to try and win the league, to do really well in our local cup competitions and the hope to do okay in the Scottish Cup, we've got potentially 8 games left, 8 wins and we've got four trophies."
Two Colony Locos players took time out before their 1-1 draw away at Formartine United to look forward to the game. We 1st start off with Mike Watson and he said "I'm looking forward to it, hopefully we can get a big crowd down for the game, it'll be a big occasion and a big day and hopefully we win, that's what we're aiming for.
"I hope there's about 300 in attendance for the game, it will be the biggest crowd that i'll have played in, Banchory are a very good side and totally deserved their win, there's been a lot of friends asking when the game is, what's happening and asking if we'll win the game."
Watson then joked when he said "Alan wasn't as good as us when he was a youngster, we've all been good mates since day 1, if we get to the final then that'll be the biggest thing for our team, it's just a good squad of boys playing football together."
Defender Phillip Woodgreaves also looked forward to the game by saying "It's a great achievement for all of us so i'm just looking forward to it, there was a few tough reuslts on the way to the semi-final, the penalty shoot-out against Glenburn, that was tough for all of us.
"I am looking forward to getting into the final and hopefully we can get there, we're going to try and keep the ball down and just play like we normally play, training has been intense and it's been a lot more harder than it has been in the last couple of weeks it's been tough.

Scots girls shine in the Algarve

Written by
Scotland's Under 16 women continued their fine form, with a superb showing in a development tournament based in Portugal's Algarve. 
The group of players, featured 12 of the squad who won last season's Bob Docherty Cup, faced tough opposition as they looked to take their success from the home nations tournament to the continent.
First up for the young Scots was a tie against Norway. A Chelsea Cornet goal gave Scotland the lead, however they were pegged back in the closing stages by a Norweigan equaliser, which sent the match to spot kicks. Donna Paterson, Erin Cuthbert and Amy Gallagher were on target, as Scotland held their nerve to edge the shoot out 3-2.
Scotland's second match was against The Netherlands and a slow start saw the Scots fall behind in the opening minutes. However, a Cuthbert free kick was headed home by Courtney Whyte, levelling the scores at the break. Cuthbert then turned goalscorer match-winner as she was brought down inside the penalty area with 10 minutes remaining. The Rangers star dusted herself down before putting away the penalty to put Scotland in pole position ahead of the final round of matches.
The final game matched Scotland against Austria - who were also undefeated and in contention for top spot. After a stalemate first half, the Austrians took the lead shortly after the interval. Scotland bounced back with captain Alyshia Walker the hero, striking twice in quick succession to turn the game on its head. Scotland's fine campaign was rounded off with a Cassie Cowper headed goal from a Chantelle Brown corner.
Scotland's successful squad was: Rebecca Flaherty, Rachel Ross, Cailin Michie, Courtney Whyte, Cassie Cowper, Amy Lynch, Claire Mullen, Erin Cuthbert, Alyshia Walker, Amy Gallagher, Chantelle Brown, Kirsty Jefferies, Donna Paterson, Keira Johnstone, Chelsea Cornet, Kelsey Boyle, Carla Boyce, Taylor Davis, Chloe Gilfoyle, Colette Cavanagh.
