A battling performance from Newmachar United was enough for the Aberdeenshire side to take home the Under 16s Spree B League title for season 2018-19 winning 2-0, goals from John Milne and Callum Donald completed the trick. It has been a very competitive B League this year with Cove, Formartine, Donside and FDS also playing their part in making sure it was an intense title race. Newmachar and Cove were the most consistent throughout the season and deserve their place in the A league next term.
Donside only had 11 men on the park with two trialists alongside that, it was always going to be a tough ask to get anything out of the game however the Alford side were very positive when going forward. Newmachar had the first chance of the match through Donald however it went wide before the visitors broke forward with Finlay Mitchell having the ball in the net however he was deemed offside.
Newmachar's creativity was looking sharp with John Milne causing havoc up front alongside his fellow forwards, a good ball by Nickolas Price found Milne however the crossbar was the burden from Newmachar taking the lead inside 15 minutes.
Donside broke forward again on 18 minutes with a fantastic ball by Logan Barclay finding Morgan Ritchie however the latter failed to connect with the ball and it went out for a United goal kick.
Newmachar were to play the better football and chances as the half drew to a close, Daniel Owen had a good chance for the hosts tipped over the crossbar by Ethan Munro before United took the lead on 38 minutes, a throw-in found the winger who sent a lovely delivery into the box with the ball coming to the feet of Milne who fired home from close range.
