It was a windy scene at Aulton when CBC Hilton hosted Ellon Meadows. Both sides are at different scales of the table. CBC are currently 3rd bottom whilst Ellon are currently 3rd and a win in their game in hand will see the Aberdeenshire outfit go top.

Ellon showed their class in this encounter, particularly in attack whilst Hilton going by the showing they produced in the 1st half are in the wrong position. In the opening exchanges of the game, Ellon had most of the ball and created the better attacking opportunities however Hilton stuck in and made life hard for Meadows with the Hilton midfield being compact and frustrating the opposition.

Klayton Stewart in the CBC Hilton goal made a good start to the game making two really good saves to deny Fraser MacLeod and Michael Taylor. Both these Ellon players had efforts from the edge of the box however Stewart was equal to them both.

Then, a dangerous ball in by Ellons MacLeod was nearly put into his own net by Mitchell Walker however the centre half did enough to make sure it didn't go in and the ball then went into the goalkeepers hands and in safe guard.

The visitors hard work then paid off after a long bouncing ball found Daniel Richardson who rounded the goalkeeper and slotted the ball into an empty net. A lot of people would have expected Hilton to cave in after that point however they kept going and Hilton were to respond just a short time later.

5 minutes later, Hilton were level after a great ball from Josh Petrie came deep into the box which was met by Branden Fraser who guided the ball home with his head. A great ball in then a great connection to put the ball past the Ellon goalkeeper.

  • Ellon Meadows

The half time team talk from Ellon must have been demanding a reaction from the visitors after being locked in at 1-1 during the interval, Ellon were quick out of the traps and got 3 quick goals.

Ellons 1st goal of the 2nd half arrived with the 2nd period only 4 minutes old after a great ball came into the pathway of Joshua Grugeon who kept his composure very well to slot the ball past Stewart in the Hilton goal.

Then the goal of the game arrived in the 48th minute after a long range free kick from Taylor wonderfully found its way into the top left corner. I don't know if he meant it or not however that is certainly a goal for the scrapbook.

The next goal for the visitors arrived in the 55th minute courtesy of Calum Cumming after Ellon hit Hilton on the counter and the ball came into the forward who guided the ball past Stewart.

CBC then reduced the deficit after a great ball came into Jordan Boyne who guided his effort past the goalkeeper into the far corner. A gift of hope for the hosts and a lively game now at stake.

Ellon then added two late goals thanks to Calum Cumming and Ross Fraser, the first one was a header into the top left corner and then Fraser killed the game off after he received an inviting ball and he was given the chance to put the ball into an open net.

A deserved win for the Meadows in the end however Hilton can take praise from their 1st half performance, Craig Fraser has come in as manager this season and seems to be giving this Hilton team a different perspective after the previous two coaches left their position. Craig has worked with the Amateur CBC Hilton side so has plenty of experience in his locker.

Klayton Stewart - As much as Hilton scored a couple of goals, Stewart kept the score down with some good saves.
