DDYFA Results Round-Up 14/01/18

Written by

A brief respite from the icy weather allowed the first fixture card of 2018 to be played out. With cup semi-finals and top of the table clashes throughout the age groups, the near two-month football hiatus was ended with a bang.
Here’s how the action went down:

 

U13s

Carnoustie Panmure booked their spot in the semi-final of the Diamond Jubilee Cup with a 6-1 win over Montrose. Dylan McLeish netted twice, while Charlie MacPherson, Carter Kelly, Jack Chalmers and Karter Inglis also found the net.

Celtic Boys and Mearns will face off in the Celtic Golden Jubilee Cup final after 9-1 wins over Montrose and 3-1 wins over Dundee Thistle in the semi-finals.

Ferry Athletic beat Fairmuir 4-1 in the top of the table in the Café Royale League. Riverside leapfrogged Fairmuir into second place with a 4-1 win over Broughty Pumas.

Pitfour also netted four times, as they beat Maryfield 4-0.

Loghan McKelvie bagged a brace in Newtyle’s 4-1 win over Forfar in the J Clenaghan League. Alex Robson and Callum Stewart were also on target.

DUSC won 6-3 against St Andrews Colts, while Dundee West Red’s drew 3-3 with Brechin and Arbroath earned their first point of the season after a 5-5 draw with Broughty Panthers.

Dundee SC’s Robbie Harvey started 2018 in spectacular fashion as he scored four goals in their 6-1 win over Dundee West Royal’s. Logan Brough opened the scoring and Mark Small finished it for Dundee SC. ACSC recorded a 4-1 win over Kirrie,

 

U14s

Kirrie Thistle visited Fairmuir in the second round of the Reilly Falconer Cup, and kept up their unbeaten run with a 5-2 win. Logan Richardson scored a hat trick, with Archie McLean and Jake Kettles also scoring.

Injuries and suspensions meant that both sides were without their first-choice goalkeepers for this tie, which was being played at the fifth attempt. There were only five minutes on the clock when Fairmuir took the lead. Mark Ross rose above Bradley Milne at a corner, and powered home a header from six yards.

Kirrie levelled through Archie McLean’s penalty, and went ahead when Logan Richardson broke from midfield and fired a shot past Jordan Adam.

Jake Kettles got Kirrie’s third 10 minutes after the break, and Richardson scored two in three minutes to complete his hat trick. Thomas Gibb drilled in a late consolation for Fairmuir.

Dryburgh won 9-0 against Douglas to advance to the quarter-finals, and Celtic Boys will join them after beating Maryfield 9-1.

Leon Winterton scored Broughty United’s goal in their 1-1 draw with Brechin. They avoided being on the end of a cup shock with a 5-4 win on penalties.

2017 saw Forfar Boys complete an astonishing quadruple, but Dundee West ensured they won’t repeat that feat in 2018. Forfar found themselves two to the good approaching half time, but Cameron Blacklock’s strike on the brink of half time gave Dundee West a route back into the match.

A third Forfar goal after the restart looked to have put them in control, but Aidan Law got Dundee West’s second. With the full-time whistle ready to be blown, Derron Forbes brought Dundee West level, and they went on to win the penalty shootout 5-4, and advance to the semi-final of the Dundee West Anniversary Cup.

Ferry Athletic were on league duty, and they picked up a big win over DUSC. Owen Boath took his tally in all competitions to 22 goals with a hat trick. Rian Clark scored twice, as did Charlie Massie. Jack Moir, Nicolas Matthew and Jamie Stracey also found the net.

ACSC are looking up the league table after beating Montrose 4-0. Kaden Houghton and Rui Gordon scored in the first half, while Logan Coull and Billy Rennie found the net in the second period.

In the Watson McInally League, St Andrews Colts beat Vale of Tay 9-0, Riverside won 5-1 against Monifieth, while Ryan Keillor and Bryan Dalgetty’s goals earned St Murdochs a 2-2 draw against Carnoustie.

 

U15s

Monifieth Athletic started the new year with a bang as they sealed a spot in their first ever cup final, thanks to a 4-1 win over Fairmuir in the semi-final of the Jean Pierre Babin Cup.

Robbie Flynn gave Fairmuir the lead inside two minutes when he pounced on a loose ball inside the Monifieth box, but the G Taylor League leaders came roaring back, and equalised two minutes later thanks to Aidan Lorente’s strike from the edge of the box.

The game settled down after the frantic opening, but neither goalkeeper was seriously troubled. Lorente put Monifieth ahead on the brink of half time with a superb curling shot from the right-hand side of the box.

Monifieth’s skipper completed his hat trick with a cool finish seven minutes after the restart.

A fingertip save from Thomas Welsh denied Flynn a second of the game, and Monifieth completed the scoring late on when Ross McLean tapped into an empty net after Shaun Watt could only parry Aaron Dewar’s effort.

They will take on Pitfour, who won 5-0 against Carnoustie. Alistar Alcorn got four second half goals, and Jordan Turnbull was also on target for the reigning champions.

Broughty Panthers won 5-1 against Forfar in the G Taylor League. Haaris Ahmed scored a hat trick, with Lewis Munro and Liam Jones also netted.

Dundee West hit the goal trail against DUSC as they rose to second in the league. Nick Fletcher scored seven times, Cavan McLaren, Logan Smith, Lewis Hutton got doubles. Keir Skinner, Luke Miller and an own goal completed the rout.

Celtic Boys started the new year with a 6-1 win over Broughty United. Cody Louge and Derren Gordon both got hat tricks.

Craig Low’s hat trick earned Riverside three points as they beat Montrose, and Ferry Athletic beat Dundee Thistle 5-0.

 

U16s

There will be a Broughty Ferry derby in the final of the John Clark Motors Cup. Broughty United won their semi-final with Jeanfield 9-8 on penalties after a 2-2 draw, while Ferry Athletic survived a late Fairmuir comeback to earn a 3-2 win.

There was an eerie symmetry to the Chuck McGowan Cup quarter-final results. Dryburgh CC and Lincraig both won 4-2 on penalties after 3-3 draws against Brechin and Dundee Thistle respectively, while a 4-2 win was enough for Monifieth advance past St Murdochs Colts.

St Murdochs knocked Forfar Albion out of the Queens Jubilee Cup after a 4-3 penalty win after a 2-2 draw.

In the Maryfield League, Dryburgh extended their lead at the summit with a 3-2 win over Logie Harp. Blairgowrie picked up a 2-0 win over Scone Thistle.

With their title rivals on cup duty, Riverside took full advantage and moved to the top of the W Mills League table with a 9-0 win over Dundee Rangers. Fergus Robertson and Michael Tinning were both at the double, while Aiden Stuart, Amine Atrih, Connor Spence, Mateusz Wierzbicki, Nathan Stewart, Owen Simpson, Paul Traynor, Ross Anderson, Samuel Gallacher all started the new year with a goal.

 

U17s

East Craigie Swifts and Ferry Athletic will face off in the final of the Steven Elwood Memorial Trophy after both recorded big wins in their semi-finals.

Matt McKinnon bagged a hat trick as East Craigie beat Forfar 6-0. Ewan Faulkner’s brace and Calum McCleary’s strike completed the scoring.

Ferry went one better and beat Celtic Boys 7-0 to earn a spot in the final. Cameron Murray netted from the penalty spot, Liam Crocket made it two before a double from Bradley Duff put Ferry in control. Murray headed in his second of the game before Ryan Patterson added Ferry’s sixth and seventh goals.  

Fairmuir won 6-1 against Dundee Rangers in the Dave Pullar League. Alex Martin scored twice, with Billy Young, Kieran McWilliam, Ryan Napier and Cammy Ross also on target.

Carnoustie Panmure made it three cup finals in three years after they beat Brechin City 2-0 in the J Cord Cup semi-final. In a repeat of last year’s Chuck McGowan Cup final.

Vincent Edmonds and Brandon Black’s first half goals ensured Carnoustie’s place in the final. They will take on St Andrews Colts, who beat Dryburgh 4-1.
Forfar West End beat DUSC 7-4 in the Bodycare Complimentary Clinics League. Partan Craig and Monifieth played out a 3-3 draw.

 

U19s

Ross Campbell’s hat trick helped Coupar Angus book a spot in the G Kerr Cup semi-final with a 6-2 win over Luncarty. Paul Scott got a double and Calum Cocker-Tough also scored.

In the Peter MacAvoy Cup, Fairmuir Violet beat Forfar WE 5-2. Goals from Ben Russell, Robbie Gallacher, Jack Taylor and two from Mitchell Hay were enough to get Fairmuir through. Ferry beat Monifieth Tayside in the other semi-final.

In the President League, Brechin beat Monifieth 3-2 to earn their first three points of the season and Letham Tans drew 2-2 against Kirrie.

Kirkcaldy Inter pull through against East Fife

Written by

A Gordon Tulloch double and a Kierren Ritchie goal were enough to see Kirkcaldy Inter gain maximum points in a hard-fought battle.

The home side Inter were first to threaten as a dangerous Ritchie cross was met by Cameron McGregor whose close ranged volley was denied by a smart save from keeper Tyler Wilson, in the 3rd minute. Wilson was called in for another save after McGregor threatened again with a header, but once again, Wilson prevented the hosts to take the lead in the 10th minute.

The visitors got their first chance of the game when Harris Duffy picked up the ball at the edge of the box and saw his powerful shot, just go wide of the post in the 14th minute. Duffy was at it again in the 21st minute as he danced past the Inter defence and forced an exquisite save from keeper Robbie Carson.

Sam Page was next to test Carson who was on top form, but once again saw an East Fife effort saved by Carson in the 25th minute

Arguably against the run of play, Inter broke the deadlock through a close ranged Tulloch volley at the back post from an in-swinging corner delivered by Ritchie in the 28th minute. Inter immediately added a second, when a deflected Tulloch cross found it’s way to the back of the net in the 30th minute.

Inter were unlucky to not get a third when Ritchie went on another superb run down the left wing and floated in a wonderful cross to Sam Ovenstone, who couldn’t keep his effort down in the 31st minute, which ended up being the last chance of the half.   

 
16-year-old attacking midfielder Alassan Jones has put pen to paper on a two-year professional deal with Dundee United.
 
The Swedish-born Edinburgh based prospect has been at Dundee United's youth academy since 2017 after signing from Edinburgh based side Tynecastle FC.
 
After signing his contract Jones said, "I have felt very welcome here and have already trained quite a few times with the first team which has excited me. I am delighted to sign my first professional contract with Dundee United."
 
Jones began his career at Edina Hibs and in his first year he won the Scottish Cup, captaining the side and scoring the opening goal, putting in a man of the match performance in the process.
 
The following year he was part of the Hibs side that fell at the fourth round of the cup, this time losing in agonizing fashion on penalties against the team they had beaten a year earlier in the final of the previous years competition, Rangers SABC.
 
He earned redemption however in his last year at Edina Hibs as his side beat Hutchison Vale in the final to secure his and the clubs second Scottish Cup in three years before moving to Tynecastle FC.
 
It was here that he won his third Scottish Cup, getting on the scoresheet in an incredible 7-1 victory over Lewis United Youth before signing a pro youth contract at Dundee United
 
He has been a constant feature on this website as well, with many a match reporter awarding him our 'Star Man' award.
 
Congratulations Alassan and we wish you the very best at Dundee United.
 
#WhatsYourStory
 
In this edition of #WhatsYourStory we take a look into the squad from Perthshire who are jetting off to sunny Spain for the Barcelona Summer tournament with Trans World Soccer.
 
Youth Football Scotland looked to gather the details on how Luncarty were getting on prior to their excursion south, enter gaffer Andy Henderson who provided us with all the answers.
 
With Barcelona being the destination, as expected the team were mightily keen on visiting the famous European footballing city as well as having a break away from home. Coach Henderson explained, ‘the team are looking forward to visiting the Nou Camp…and getting some time away from parents!’
 
Although the trip away may seem all fun and games, the Perthshire outfit will be firmly challenged as they compete against u19s in spite of being an u18s side. Playing against older, more experienced players will be highly beneficial and hopefully provide a learning as well as pleasurable experience for the team. Andy looks forward to the boys being tested in this contest.
 
Despite Luncarty being a small village, they have an impressive football system which promotes community engagement from a young age. Luncarty teams begin with soccer school, starting as early as u7s, that leads right up until the junior team – who just last year reached the Scottish Junior cup last 16.
 
Luncarty 18s were fairly recently promoted and thus are coming up against tougher opposition in their league. In order to help them strive in this league the Costa Daurada Cup should aid the team in bonding as well as maturing as football players.
 
If you are interested in participating in Easter or Summer tournaments in 2018, click here and register your interest with Trans World Soccer.
 
1.   What tournament will you be going to?
 
Barcelona Summer Tournament
 
2.   What are you / the team most looking forward to for the trip?
 
I think the team are most looking forward to visiting the Nou Camp with their football team / time away from parents! I’m looking forward to them testing themselves as an u18 team playing in an u19 age group.
 
3.   What is something that people might not know about Luncarty?
 
We are a small village but have a great community club set up with teams from soccer school through to juniors. Our Junior team reached last season’s Scottish junior cup last 16, only losing to eventual beaten finalists and 11 time finalists Auchinleck Talbot.
 
4.   Is this the first tournament abroad? Have the team won any trophies recently?
 
Yes. No recent trophy wins for the team. 2 years ago we did seal promotion on a dramatic final game decider. Since then the standard of opposition has increased so the team are trying to consolidate their position and keep improving as fast as possible - part of the reason for doing this trip.

Image may contain: 1 person, smiling
 
Inverkeithing United youngster Alasdair Davidson rang in the new year in some style as he signed his first professional contract at Celtic
 
Davidson's impressive performances caught the eye of a number of clubs throughout Scotland, but it was the Hoops who came in with an offer to join the club after a successful trial period at the club.
 
His coach Jamie Kinnear has been an ever-present in his life, and was ecstatic at the prospect of his pupil joining the Glasgow giants.
 
On the club's Facebook page Kinnear posted, "Alasdair has been with us from the very start & although we only formed earlier this year Ali has been under my coaching wing since he was 5 years old. Alasdair was once a shy wee boy would had to be dragged along to training by his Mum & Dad as he was so shy!
 
"Ali has developed into a lovely lad & a fantastic player with bags of confidence & the ability to match. He is a credit to his parents Lesley & Russell who have been a massive support to me personally & to Inverkeithing United over the years.
 
"We are all very proud of how he has developed & we wish him all the very best with this fantastic opportunity at Celtic."
 
It's incredibly pleasing to see a young Scottish footballer take his first steps into the professional game and everyone here at Youth Football Scotland wishes Alasdair the very best at Celtic.

DDYFA Results Round-Up 10/12/17 and 17/12/17

Written by

The final two weeks of the footballing calendar were hit hard by the weather, but a few plucky sides braced the sub-zero temperatures and played their matches.
Here’s how the action went down:


U13s

Ferry Athletic secured a spot in the Last 16 of the Scottish Cup, as they beat Fairmuir 3-2 at the GA Arena.

Blaike Kyles put Ferry ahead after eight minutes with a cool finish, and Aiden Lockhart doubled their advantage after 20 minutes with a dipping strike.

Kyles volleyed in his second of the match five minutes later, but goals either side of half time from Stuart Heenan set up a nervy finish, but Ferry held on and are now the last team from Dundee in the competition.

Dundee United SC ended 2017 with a 5-2 win over Newtyle in the J Clenaghan League.

 

U15s

Broughty United Panthers sealed a place in the semi-finals of the Tommy Clark Trophy as they beat DUSC 3-2 in both sides last match of the year.

Ryan Carr and Daniel Boyle both netted in the opening 10 minutes as Broughty Panthers came flying out the traps, but a superb free kick from Lewis Thomson brought DUSC back into the game.

Panthers’ goalkeeper Wilson Price pulled of a string of impressive saves before Boyle fired in his second of the match.

DUSC continued to dominate for most of the second half, and Price was eventually beaten when Reece Rankin curled in DUSC’s second of the match 12 minutes from time.

In injury time, DUSC were awarded a controversial penalty, but Price kept out Thomson’s spot kick and Broughty ended the year on a high.

 

U17s

Matt McKinnon’s strike wasn’t enough to stop East Craigie Swifts losing 2-1 to Edinburgh City Whites in the Scottish Cup, while Forfar Boys beat Dundee Rangers 5-4 in the first round of the Elwood Cup.

 

U19s

Brechin earned their first point of the season with a 0-0 draw against Coupar Angus, while Letham Tans secured a place in the semi-final of the Peter MacAvoy Cup with a 2-0 win over Dundee West.

Jeanfield Swifts Community FC has been selected by the Scottish Football Association to participate in a pilot project aimed at developing community clubs.
 
The project will largely be lottery-funded and the plans have now been made open for public opinion.
 
Swifts presented their plans on 27th November in front of a packed lounge at the Riverside Stadium in Perth, which include redeveloping playing and training facilities and building brand new spaces for local groups, alternative education, healthcare providers and other local sporting authorities.
 
The plans also include elements of social housing as well as a sustainable heating scheme.
 
The club is also looking to helping the local community take ownership of the new facility to help ensure a lasting legacy.
 
On the plans, club committee member Steve Antoniewicz said, “The key question we must ask is what needs does our community have? Our research has already told us about issues around school attendance, employment, drugs, alcohol, general health and mental wellbeing. As a very visible part of the community we could be at the forefront of helping to address some of these problems, and others that we uncover as we move forward.”
 
Details for community engagement have not been announced as of the time of writing.

Undefeated season for excellent Raith Rovers

Written by
Raith Rovers Girls have achieved what few teams manage to do and have not only won the East 15s League, but have won every single one of their league games.
 
22 games, 22 wins and a goal difference in the triple figures, this has definitely been a season to remember for the team from Kirkcaldy, who have won the clubs first ever league title.
 
They started the season in fine form with a derby win over Dunfermline Athletic and followed it up with an impressive 3-0 away win against Letham. These results very much set the tone for how Raith were to play for the rest of the season as they continued to dominate and eventually finished 17 points ahead of second placed Forfar Farmington Falcons.
 
Youth Football Scotland caught up with Rovers' coach Harry Wyper for his thoughts on an incredible season for his girls.
 
"The girls are proud to be league champions for 2017 as it is the first league title in the clubs history.
 
"As we had finished 3rd in the previous season we set them a task to go and win the league  which they did with 22 wins out of 22 which was above our wildest dreams, they didn't play brilliant football some weeks but the determination to win was there for all to see.
 
"The bond between the girls last season to help each other on and off the pitch was great to see as it is not all about football, it's a way of life.
 
"Losing our second League Cup Final in a row was difficult to take as we let ourselves down with our usual slow start which i think the occasion got the better of them.
 
"Next season we are moving up to u17 level as 3 out of 15 girls have to move due to age . The girls wanted a new challenge and to stay together as a team."
 
It will certainly be interesting to see how Harry's team deals with the jump up in age group, but going by what happened last season, it certainly looks as though they are ready for the challenge.
 
Congratulations Raith Rovers Girls and best of luck for next season.

The woodwork was rattled at the other end when Aaron Flynn headed against the crossbar. Rannoch Ramsay volleyed in Jeanfield’s second of the game seconds before half time.

Jamie Bell’s own goal after 49 minutes handed Dryburgh a lifeline, but their joy was short lived as Cooney found the net four minutes later.

Jeanfield had the chance to go into a 4-1 lead when the referee pointed to the penalty spot, but Aaron Cosgrove pushed Ben Shepherd’s effort to safety.

DDYFA Results Round-Up 26/11/17

U13s
Dundee United SC and Arbroath Lads will face-off in the final of The Marshall Cup, after beating St Andrews Colts and Broughty United respectively.

Ruari Henry gave Dundee West an early lead, but Ryan Carr fired Broughty level before half time.
Sam Grimes put Broughty in front just after half time, but Cavan McLaren quickly brought Dundee West level. Carr’s second of the game gave Broughty the lead again, but Lewis Hutton levelled the match once more.
