Tight at the top for Fife FDL U14’s

Written by 

With the new season only four games old, predictions on this season’s winners and losers at this stage are clearly premature.
There’s no doubt that the usual suspects will still be there or thereabouts, and before a ball had been kicked there will have surely have been quiet murmurings among certain fans that for their team a healthy haul of silverware come May was nothing more than a formality. 
But with the thrill of the cup competitions still to look forward to, fans of the Fife Football Development League Under 14’s Division One are buckling in for what is already shaping up to be an enthralling league season, with four of the regions stalwart sides currently doing battle at the summit.
Blue Brazil, Inverkeithing Hillfield Swifts Yellows and Lochgelly Albert Colts have all enjoyed an unbeaten start to the season, and are tied for top spot on ten points from their first four games. Real Fife are also in the mix, with a narrow defeat to Benarty Astros FC the only blotch on their record so far.
The next few weeks look set to be pivotal even at this early stage, with all four teams lining up against each other over a relatively small space of time.
In their next two matches Real Fife will host Inverkeithing before travelling to Lochgelly, with the latter two sides meeting themselves at the start of November. Sandwiched in the middle of a trip to Real Fife and the visit of Lochgelly, Inverkeithing also have the not so small task of welcoming Cowdenbeath giants Blue Brazil to Ballast Bank at the end of October.  
Currently sitting in second place, maximum points from their next three games would see the Swifts perched at the top of the league, but coach Raymond King is not getting carried away.
"Football’s football and anything can happen on the day", he said. "I have the utmost belief in the boys and we will just keep going one match at a time and see where we end up".
The first of those tests will come on Sunday as Inverkeithing travel to McDuff Park to take on fourth placed Real Fife, and with plenty more big matches to come along the way Division One is certainly shaping up to be one to watch this season.
