U21's Trans World Soccer Scottish Youth FA Cup - 2nd Round
Loretto Playing Fields
06 October 2014
This cup tie had to be switched at the last minute because of the heavy overnight rain that made Station Road unplayable. That said Loretto playing fields were a great substitue, the pitch was in first class condition despite the rain. The weather picked up and became sunny with quite a strong wind.
Campsie started the better with a lot of possession, but it was the same old story. They were creating chance after chance but could not put the ball into the net. McGrotty had a couple of early chances but could not find the target.
McLuskey also made a great chance on 26 minutes. A great run up the right wing beating several Claremont players, but only to have his shot go just wide of the post.
It took until the 28th minute for Campsie to finally break the deadlock when a good move from McGrotty to McGuire and then onto Kenny Wright out on the left wing. Wright cut inside and moved the ball onto his right side and hit a great shot that beat the keeper.
Wright had another great chance five minutes later, but this time he couldn't convert it into a goal.
Half Time: Campsie Black Watch 1-0 Claremont FC
The second half saw Campsie settle and play more controlled football. Right from kick-off Campsie's McgGuire moved the ball to McLuskey who played the ball up the line to McWilliams. He who drove forward before delivering a great ball into the box to be met by Jordan McGrotty who blasted it into the net.
Campsie were now in control of the game so on came the subs. This made no difference to the Campsie performance as they kept creating lots of chances and were knocking the ball about well.
52 minutes played and Ketterer played a great ball through to Kelly, who looked up and from 22 yards and hits an unstoppable strike into the net.
The rest of the game was played out with Campsie making a few more chances and could possibly had another couple of goals if it was not for a few great saves from the Claremont keeper.
Full Time: Campsie Black Watch 3-0 Claremont FC
