Fun Fours returns for Tayside youngsters

Written by

Author: Mikey Colville

Fun Fours returned to Dundee last Saturday for another great season of football fun. Fun Fours is a project from the Scottish FA which works with 6 to 8 year old kids and introduces them to football through 4 v 4 games.

The small sided game tries to get kids interested in football and start them off on the right track. They encourage kids to be positive when playing and to be brave by trying new things on the ball without fear of being told off. Fun fours also get kids to use both feet when playing, to love playing with the football in every situation, and just to enjoy themselves.

Fun Fours is like street football, but in a controlled environment. The idea is to bring back when kids would play football in the streets all day, but with some coaching and organisation. Four versus four is a great number for kids at this age because it allows everyone playing to get more touches on the ball, it’s more simplistic as the players positions are more basic, the formation creates more attacking one versus one situations and chances to score. Fun fours aims to improve the young person's confidence when playing and give them freedom of expression on the ball.

The next step from 4 a side is 7 a side, it’s the natural progression as kids start to develop into players and want to do more. Again players will still get more touches on the ball, but now additional rules would be introduced and there are more attacking and defending situations than 4 a side. Also there are opportunities to play in all positions so players can find their preferred position.

Fun Fours is an exciting new idea and has the potential to change the way football is played in football, and great for kids to get active and have fun playing football.

13's SWF East - Dundee/Angus 
Douglas Sports Centre
17/03/2013
 
 
 
On a very cold and damp Dundee morning Farmington Blue United continued their fine start to the season.

After some early pressure Zoe Moreland set up Katie White to open the scoring. Moreland then took over the scoring with a neatly taken effort set up by Taylor Clifford then a second teed up by Megan Ferguson.

In the second half Moreland was again creator for White’s second before United opened their account.

Anne Murrie completed the scoring after a fine run squeezing the ball between goalkeeper and post.

The game showed coach Hutcheon’s emphasis on the passing game with some football being a joy to watch with new keeper Shinead Watson continuing to grow into her new position with an assured outing.

Monifieth vs Ferry President LeaugeMonifieth hosted Ferry Athletic at Riverview in what looked to be a close derby match, and despite Monifieth losing 4-1 it was a very tough game.

Not long after Ferry had kicked off they got a free kick and their first chance of the game. The ball was fired into the box, it bounced across the face of the goal but no one could tap it in. Ferry continued to press for an early goal, Cameron Macdonald was nearly through on goal but Kayode Oduyemi made a great tackle.

Monifieth then countered, they looked dangerous on the attack but Jamie Matheson’s ball up to Gregor Dewar was just too hard. Monifieth made another attack in the 5th minute, Stuart Brodie played a good ball up to Dewar. Adeel Ahmed made a strong tackle to stop the chance early.

Monifieth made a brilliant passing move up the pitch with some skilful passes in the 11th minute, Kieran Smart then looked to run into the box but Ferry defender Ben Middleton stopped him and got rid of the ball. Ferry then looked to counter, Ryan Mitchell made a run towards goal but Kayode Oduyemi made another good challenge.

A minute later Mitchell played a nice pass to Gary Scrimgeour in the box, Scrimgeour looked to take a shot but was tackled by Jamie Matheson who did well to cut out the chance. Ferry then had a corner. Callum Kinnear played the ball into the box. It went straight to Mitchell who struck a shot at goal but Monifieth goalie Callum Paul made a good save.

Monifieth started to press the Ferry defence. Gregor Dewar was in the box but Adeel Ahmed tackled him and won the ball. Dewar soon got a goal though, in the 22nd minute, the ball was played into the box and Dewar controlled it well to then slot it past the goal keeper making it 1-0 Monifieth.

Ferry kicked off and looked eager to get an equaliser. Dewar came close again when he took it around a Ferry defender to be one on one with the keeper, but Keith Mitchell made a fantastic save.

In the 27th minute Cameron MacDonald crossed the ball into the box but Callum Paul won it in the air and held it well. Soon after Cairn Gray then made a good run towards the box, he passed it to Ryan Mitchell on the right side of the box. Mitchell then hit the ball towards goal but the keeper managed to save the shot.

In the 34th minute Gregor Dewar was played through on to goal, but Keith Mitchell bravely came out to win the one on one. A minute later Lee Munro played Ryan Mitchell a great pass, he sprinted towards the Monifieth box but Kayode Oduyemi stopped him with a sliding tackle.

Cairn Gray came close to equalising in the 42nd minute. Gray beat a player and got into the Monifieth box, he struck the ball towards. The shot beat the keeper but rattled off the post. A minute later Ferry got their equalising goal, Callum Paul managed to save Cameron Macdonald’s shot but couldn’t save Lee Munro’s who made it 1-1.

Half Time: Monifieth Athletic 1-2 Ferry Athletic 

Monifieth vs Ferry President LeaugeMonifieth kicked off, they looked like they weren’t ready to give up. Gregor Dewar nearly had the first chance of the second half but Keith Mitchell made a good save, there was some confusion though and looked like Dewar had been brought down by a defender.

Monifieth came close to equalising in the 52nd minute, a skilful chipped ball was played over the defence to Dewar who came close to scoring once again but Keith Mitchell made another great save.

A few minutes later Ferry almost extended their lead. Ryan Mitchell sprinted towards goal and strikes a wonderful shot towards goal, it managed to beat the keeper but was denied by the cross bar. Cameron Macdonald tried to finish the rebound but just missed.

Ferry Athletic scored another goal in the 63rd minute to make it 3-1. Cairn Gray showed great skill and composure in front of goal, Gray beat the defence by cutting back and forward and then slotted the ball past the keeper.

Ferry Athletic then made it 4-1 in the 66th minute. The ball was played into Lee Munro in the box who was unmarked and made the finish look easy.

Despite Ferry’s three goal lead Monifieth kept looking for chances to score. Kieran Smart came close in the 72nd minute, he was one on one with the Ferry goalie but his shot just scraped past the post. Soon after Smart was played through on goal, he took a powerful shot but Mitchell managed to save it well.

Swifts hit top form against spirited Bayside

Written by

 


Jeanfield Swifts Sisters
 vs
Bayside Girls FC
 
 
 
13's SWF East Region - Fife/Perth
Riverside Stadium, Perth
09/03/2013
 
 
 
Author: Richard Smith

On a very crisp morning in the suburbs of Perth, Jeanfield Sisters 13's entertained Bayside Girls in the first match of the season.

Both sides started the game brightly enough but after the ball was played wide and played into the area by the home side, it was Sophie Morrison who was on hand to give the home side a 1-0 lead.

The home side soon doubled that lead when a similar move to the first goal lead to the home side taking a 2-0 lead. Eve Barnett the scorer of the home side's second goal.

Soon after the second came the third home goal. After some good passes in the centre of the park the ball broke to Ellie Cowie who had the easiest of jobs of putting the ball in the net to give her side a 3-0 lead.

Despite the fact that the visitors were down by three as the half drew to a close they tried to play passes and the encouragement from their coaches was evident and hopefully of use to the players on the park.

Jeanfield scored another couple goals in the final moments of half and they were scored by Rachel Wolecki and Ellie Cowie, getting her second of the day.

Jeanfield continued to press at the start of the second half, the way they finished the first, playing passes and looking to attack at every opportunity. The goals started to come quickly for jeanfield in the second half and they scored another load of goals to run out convincing winners.

Despite the score the Bayside Girls played good passes when possession allowed, and they showed good team work and character in abundance.

The top performer for Jeanfield was Rachel Wolecki. This young lady ran the midfield for her side and was not afraid to make the pass when it was on.

Bayside's strongest player was Murron Kirk. This young lady, when asked to put in a tackle never once did she shirk that responsibilty.
 

 

 


Norrie McCathies
 vs
Fife Southern
 
 
 
U15 Fife Cup - Quarter Final
 
09/03/2013
 
 
 
On a terrible day for football, (the loss of a young fife player last week), 2 teams put on a brave face and got down to business. Second tier Norrie McCathies hosted top flight outfit Fife Southern, looking for a cup upset.

Norrie McCathies have had a stop start season so far in Division 2 so playing in a quarter final against a team a league above them was enough to bring them flying out the blocks. Norries were playing into a very strong wind in the first half, but managed to get the ball down and play some lovely passing football, which produced the first goal from Blair Denkaat. A great 1-2 on the edge of the box with Sam Mormon and James Rennie produced a great effort which the goalkeeper saved well but there was Denkaat who happpily pounced on the goalkeeper's save to put the Norries 1 nil up. Norries' tails were up!

Norries' midfield were by now running things with Jack Moffat and Reece Bernard playing some great football. Bernard found Jack Ritchie, with a great through ball, which Ritchie smashed into the top corner giving the keeper no chance.

Fife Southern got to grips with it coming more into the game towards the end of the first half. Twice they beat the offside trap only for the Norries keeper Kenan Lewis to produce two point blank saves, keeping it 2 nil at half time.

Half Time: Norrie McCathies 2-0 Fife Southern

Into the second half, and the wind at their backs, Norries relaxed. But it was Fife Southern who looked the more likely. Pushing hard to get themselves back in the game, but the Norries defence held firm and hit them on the break with a great ball out of defence from captain Andrew Austin finding James Rennie who sprung the offside trap, drew the keeper and very unselfishly squared the ball to Callum Foster who kept his nerve to smash the ball into an empty net. 3-0.

Although Fife Southern kept pushing, it was the Norries who scored the final goal of the game. A great corner whipped to the back post and there was sub Sean Crawford to score his first goal for the Norries.

No way back for Fife Southern and a well deserved 4-0 win to take them to the semi finals. Again facing a first division team in Glenrothes Strollers on the 20th April.
 
Full Time: Norrie McCathies 4-0 Fife Southern

dundeeperformanceschoolsLast week at the Dundee International Sports Centre, boys and girls in primary schools from all around Dundee partook in the Performance Schools trial, ahead of the 2013/14 academic year.

The purpose of these Performance Schools, which are in partnership with the Scottish FA, is to provide an extensive and challenging programme for the most talented young footballers in Scotland. The Performance Schools are in places such as Dundee, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow. The aim of these schools is to produce great football players but to also improve their academic and social skills. Some of the skills which are used in the football programme are just as useful in the academic and social aspects, football uses communication, creativity, problem solving and following instructions which can be applied to activities in classrooms and the playground.

The Scottish FA has employed seven full time “Elite Youth Coaches”, who are responsible for the programme in each school. They work with National Young Team Coaches, club coaches, sports scientist and various specialists. The programme will also look to help their club football to make sure that the player can have the best chance to fulfil their potential.

The programme is based around their school hours, training sessions could be before school, lunch time or breaks. Participants in the programme can also drop one or two subjects so they can make space to play football during the school day. In this time they will focus on four main components: technical skills, tactical skills, physical skills and mental skills. Coaches will deliver these components in an easy to understand and enjoyable way. The programme also incorporates their club'Duns training and matches, for example a Monday would normally be a recovery session after a Sunday match.

The programme will surely continue to be a success as there were many talented young girls and boys to choose from at the trials. A lot of players showed great skill and technique, not to mention bags of enthusiastic to play.

Bankfoot Athletic defeated Rothes Juniors in a tightly fought encounter at a bitterly cold Warout Park this morning.

Two second half goals proved to be enough to send this visitors home happy and disappoint the hosts who fought hard for a share of the points.

There was very little between the sides in the early stages with both the visitors and the hosts carving out half chances.

Kieran Mackenzie and Cristian Shearer-Felipe combined early on for the away side, but were unable to open the scoring with the latter prodding just wide following an inviting cross from his team mate.
 
The two continued to link up and create chances but the Rothes Juniors defence held firm early on to deny the visiting team.
 
Up the other end, Jonathon Greig proved to be a threat down the left hand side for the home side, regularly taking on the full back and getting himself in promising positions.

The hosts, who had started slowly, began to grow in confidence as a result and almost took the lead when Ricki Cooper sent a stunning ball to the far post with Juniors attacker Dylan Hopkins just failing to connect with the ball.

Cooper continued to threaten the away defence and his long range effort was well saved by Bankfoot goalkeeper Lewis Fordyce.
 
As the half began to draw to a close, Connor Czarnecki saw his effort stopped by Lee Elder in the Rothes Juniors goal and both sides held on to go in goalless at half time.

Half Time: Rothes Juniors 0-0 Bankfoot Athletic 

The second half began with the away side in the ascendancy. Cameron Bruce had his well struck effort deflected into the arms of Lee Elder while Cristian Shearer-Felipe saw his effort float narrowly over the bar as he got in behind the Rothes Juniors defence.

Bankfoot Athletic continued to put pressure on the hosts and they finally made the breakthrough halfway through the second half.

The ball was swung to the far post from the right hand side and Ewan Williamson headed the ball home from short distance. There was nothing Lee Elder could do in the Juniors goal to prevent the visitors taking the lead.

However, rather than folding over, Rothes Juniors came back fighting and pressed for an equaliser.

Kurtis McKenzie provided an incisive pass for Dylan Hopkins who could only fire his shot over the bar and minutes later Jonathon Greig saw his effort narrowly miss the post.

As the home side began to push further and further forward gaps began to appear in the Juniors defence and Bankfoot Athletic took full advantage of this.

Cristian Shearer-Felipe used his pace to race away from the Rothes Juniors defence and lethally finished past the on rushing goalkeeper, giving his side an all important two goal advantage.

Both sides finished the match with chances to add to the scoreline but Bankfoot Athletic held on to clinch an all important away win.
