Aberdeenshire schools mid-season review

Written by 
Under 13s Boys League
This is a five team league this season and a three horse race at the latest stage to determine who will run out as league winners. Fraserburgh Academy are currently top, however Inverurie and Meldrum Academy have games in hand over the Broch. Meldrum have two games in hand and if they win them both they will go top of the league.
Under 14s Boys League
The under 14s league only has three teams involved this year. Fraserburgh Academy are currently top and it looks like they will run away with the league this season. Meldrum and Inverurie have yet to pick up three points this season, however Meldrum went to Fraserburgh and managed to come away with a draw.
Junior Girls League Under 15s
Mintlaw and Banff Academy have won two games out of two and it looks like being a battle between them to determine who will come out on top this season. 
Under 15s Boys League
Fraserburgh Academy are currently top of the league, but face stiff competition from Inverurie Academy who if they win their games in hand will go top of the league. Mintlaw Academy have yet to play a game this season.
Senior Girls League
With a huge goal difference of plus 22, it looks like Mintlaw Academy will be maintaining the schools record by winning another league. The school has unearthed Kim Little in the past and there will be the potential that another gem will be coming out of the school in the future.
Senior Boys (North) League
Mintlaw have yet to play this season, however, the other representatives in this league Gordon Schools (Huntly) and Fraserburgh Academy have played each other already with Fraserburgh coming out 5-4 winners in the first game before the sides met in Huntly with the hosts coming out 4-0 winners.
Senior Boys (South) League
This will be an interesting battle to decide who will come out as league champions this season. Inverurie Academy are currently top, however a win for Mintlaw Academy with their game in hand will put them top. Alford Academy have only played once in which they lost 4-1 against Inverurie. However, there is still time to put it right and stake their own battle for the league.
National Trophy
The U15s National Trophy saw Aberdeenshire just miss out on a place in the quarter-finals on goal difference. The U18s managed a victory over Angus, however also finished in 3rd place, meaning Aberdeenshire representation in both the respective competitions is over.
