ADJFA review: Saturday 31st August

Written by
Last year's league champions Albion BC Under 16's warmed up for their big game with Lewis United (pictured above right, the sides clash in cup final action last season) by overcoming Fraserburgh Link Up 9-2 thanks to four goals from Lachie Macleod, a hat trick from Clark Scott with Lewis Liversedge, Ben Soutar, Mike Ironside and Richard Binnie completing the damage. Lewis had something to say about that though with an 8-0 victory over Huntly thanks to goals from a Cammy Macintosh brace, Bobby Olajide, Ryan O'Donnell, Greg Johnstone, Marc Lawrence, Dylan Leslie and Callum Youngson. 
 
Peterhead Colts made the cross country trip to Deeside to take on Banchory and came back to the Blue toon with all three points in the bag thanks to a 4-2 win. Westdyke maintained their 100% record thanks to a 2-0 win away to Colony Park, meanwhile in Banff, Glentanar achieved the impossible after coming back from 4-0 to draw 4-4 at Deveronvale. 
 
In the B League Byron Rovers and ALC Rangers shared the spoils at Aulton, Andrew Green and Dean Marr looked to have Rangers in control however a double from Ryan Crant made sure that both sides only had a point out of the game. Cove, Culter, Kintore United and Stonehaven had wins over Formartine United, Cove BC United, Byron United and Ellon Meadows.
 
The Under 17's game of the day was in Portsoy where league champions Deveronvale played host to runners up Culter, it was the latter who were to come away with the three points winning 2-1 thanks to goals from Duncan Craig and Aiden Combe with Paul Sutherland scoring for Vale. Glentanar still have a 100% record intact as they made the journey to Huntly to come out on top winning 5-1, Colony fresh from keeping their A league status beat Cove 2-1. 
 
Westdyke jumped to 5th after a 5-3 victory over Kemnay. Colony Colts continued their good start to the season in League B after a 6-2 win over Bervie Caley whilst East End won their 1st game of the season beating Newmachar United 5-1 with goals from Jason Davie, Cameron Christie, Nicholas Milne, Dominic Burns and Lewis Fraser with Aiden Clark scoring a consolation for Newmachar. There was also wins for Culter Colts, Fraserburgh Link Up and Culter Deeside beating Ellon Meadows, Banchory and Peterhead Colts respectively. 
 
In the Under 19's Murray cup Mannofield warmed up for their derby with Ferryhill with a 3-2 win over Culter Rovers while in the same group Banchory maintained pole position at the top with a 4-1 win away to Glentanar. Group two had wins for Alford Amateurs and Stonehaven over Cruden Bay and Formartine United respectively. 
 
Huntly FC and Culter United were to get into 1st and 2nd place in their league table after a 5-1 win for the black and golds over Westdyke where as Culter beat Inverurie outfit Colony Colts 4-1. Group 4 saw a five goal thriller which seen Colony Locos come out 5-4 winners over Cove BC Colts. Cove Rangers piled up the pressure on Locos at the top after a convincing 9-0 victory over Dee.

Cove BC U14s stormed to their first victory of the season this morning against Culter United.  United raced into an early two-goal lead but the hosts fought back and ran out convincing winners by some margin.

In a frantic opening period, Cove had the first chance. Tyler Ross broke down the right but dragged his shot wide.  Three minutes in Culter grabbed the lead.  Adam Murray made a good run down the left wing before but saw his shot hit the post.  However he was first to the rebound to tap the ball home.
 
The home side nearly levelled immediately when a Luca Giulanotti cross found Shaun McCard but the danger-man headed wide.  A minute later United doubled their lead.  Murray was the scorer again, reacting first to the loose ball after the keeper had parried his initial effort.
 
McCard rattled the Culter bar on five minutes but he wouldn’t be denied for much longer.  Just a minute later the big striker pulled a goal back with a low drive to the bottom corner from wide on the right.
 
Callum Young tested Ryan Gibson in the Cove goal with a 10th minute header, but the keeper was equal to the challenge.  Cove then went straight up to the other end where Cameron Wedderburn played in Giulanotti, but he didn’t catch his shot properly and McMullan made an easy save.
 
In the 17th minute Cove’s number 17, Tyler Ross, made it 2-2.  The striker beat the offside trap to go through one-on-one and coolly slot past the keeper to bring his side level.  Two minutes later Ross was sent through one-on-one again, this time the keeper got a hand to his shot but couldn’t quite keep it out as Cove completed the comeback.
 
With 23 minutes on the clock Ross was sent clear for a third time, this time McMullen got a stronger hand to his shot though and Aidan Beattie was able to clear off the line.  It wasn’t long before Cove added number four; a deft flick from Ross set up McCard who found the bottom corner with a powerful effort from the edge of the box.
 
Cove’s fifth came in the 27th minute through Shaun McCard, who completed his hat-trick in spectacular fashion with an outrageous lob from way out wide on the right.  Culter looked to respond straight away but goalkeeper Gibson was out quickly to beat Young to the ball.
 
Ross raced down the left wing on the half-hour mark, but a superb sliding challenge from Fraser Lowe stopped the striker getting a shot away.  Cameron McMullan then pulled off two really good saves in the space of a minute, firstly from McCard and then from Owen Gray.
 
Two quick goals from the home side in the last two minutes of the first half effectively put them out of sight.  McCard got number six after showing great strength to hold off the defender and then dink the ball over the on-rushing keeper.  Ross then completed his hat-trick as he poked the ball past the keeper and in off the post from close range.
 

Half Time: Cove BC 7-2 Culter United
 

After a 100mph first half, the second half was played at a slower pace, but Cove continued to dominate.  Rhys Barbour got his head onto a Connor Towler cross in the 38th minute, but McMullan pulled off a good stop.
 
At the other end Louie Ronald cut inside from the left but saw his shot saved by Gibson.  Cove’s eighth goal came in the 47th minute thanks to a composed finish from Ross, leaving the keeper with no chance.
 
Wedderburn had a good chance at the back post on 59 minutes but snatched at the shot and blasted high over the bar.  Just after the hour-mark though, the hosts made in 9-2 with a goal that wouldn’t have looked out of place at the Nou Camp.  Tyler Ross stepped up to take a free kick from a few yards outside the box and smashed it into the top corner brilliantly.
 
With six minutes to go Cove scored again.  Connor Towler skipped away from the challenge of a defender before curling a low effort into the far corner to become just the fourth different scorer of the day.  
 
Towler then rounded up the scoring with his second in the 66th minute.  Craig Kinghorn fired a terrific ball across the face of goal and Towler was waiting at the back post to rifle it into the net emphatically.
 
All in all, Cove thoroughly deserved the win.  They were impressive throughout, playing some really good free-flowing football.  Culter United will feel hard-done-by, especially after going 2-0 up early on but the day belonged to Cove, who look certain to improve on their 5th place finish last season.

East End played host to Newmachar United at Aulton with the hosts still a B league side after their penalty shoot out defeat against Huntly last week in the play off.

 
United lost 3-2 at home to Colony Colts last week and were to get on the wrong side of the result again this week after a classy 2nd half showing from East End provided the difference after the scores were level at half time.
 
End had the 1st opportunity of the game after Kyle Cormie played a pass into Cameron Christie, a summer signing from Albion who then tried his luck with a 22 yard drive which just went wide.
 
East End were to put continous pressure on Newmachar again after a great delivery was sent in by Reece Matthew from the left hand side which wasn't picked. It then went over to the left hand flank and picked up by Jason Davie who sent in a flashing ball which was met by Tyler Crawford who shot over the bar in the 10th minute.
 
Matthew then played a great diagonal ball to open up the visitors defence and put through Jason Davie and put the hosts 1-0 up with a composed finish past onrushing Newmachar keeper Scott Fowler.
 
Newmachar equalised in the 32nd minute after Joseph Hughes sent in a great ball which was met by defender Aiden Clark who perfectly guided it past Liam Davidson.
 
The visitors then had a great chance to get their noses in front just before the interval after a smashing 35 yard free kick by Shane Pirie crashed off the crossbar and over in what would of been a cracking goal.
 
Half Time: East End 1-1 Newmachar United
 
Newmachar then tried again to gain the lead after Pirie sent in a good ball which was met by Clark however the defender couldn't get his brace.
 
East End took the lead again in the 57th minute after Reece Matthews ball was met by Davie before finding it's way into the pathway of Christie who powerfully gave his side the lead again.
 
There was still more to come from this side who showed some good attacking prowess throughout the game and a great diving save from Fowler denied Matt Harkins doubling his sides advantage.
 
The next goal seemed to be vital and Newmachar had a great chance via a free kick in the 70th minute which was taken by Pirie which went goalwards however it wasn't cleared however Davidson showed great reactions to deny Jack Jamieson.
 
Nicholas Milne was then to add to the scoring by doubling East Ends advantage after going past a Newmachar defender before finding the bottom left hand corner from 15 yards.
 
The goal of the game arrived in the 76th minute after a stunning 35 yard free kick from Dominic Burns found the top left hand corner giving Fowler no chance.
 
East End had five different goalscorers and defender Lewis Fraser was able to continue the spree after finding the bottom left hand corner with his 20 yard effort.
 
After an even half a great 2nd half showing by East End handed them over the 3 points however Newmachars positive was they showed committment from the first whistle to the last.

With Aulton pitches bathed in the Aberdeen sun the stage was set for what was to be a closely fought contest between two capable teams. A quiet first half was followed by a second packed with goals. ALC Rangers managed to take firm control of the game through goals coming from Andrew Green and a superb solo effort from Dean Marr as he shrugged off two defenders to finish with aplomb. ALC’s lead was to be short lived as some tactical changes yielded dividends with a Ryan Crant brace bringing Byron back into contention.


This was Byron’s first game of the new season in a league where they managed to secure sixth place last term and any fears that they may have had about match sharpness need not have been heeded as they proved that they were no pushovers here at Aulton.

ALC will perhaps feel slightly aggrieved at letting a two goal lead slip but can have no qualms as the first half saw both sides cancel one another out before the fireworks of the second half. It took little more than two minutes for an ALC attack to materialize with the resultant corner cleared expertly by the well versed Byron defence. In what was largely a defensive first half players such as Ryan Morrice from ALC and Byron’s Matthew Kidd were the stand-out performers. Morrice proved strong in the tackle and Byron found little luck down their left channel, whilst Kidd sat in front of his own back four offering essential cover and dictating the tempo of Byron’s game with some great vision to link well with his midfield compatriot Shaun Morrison.

ALC’s Ross Downie might well have felt that he could have made the difference before the break as his effective movement saw him released on two occasions only to fire marginally wide after some good high tempo pressure from Rangers. Byron answered ALC’s pressure as Morrisson charged forward to win a free kick in a dangerous area, with the resultant inswinging freekick being punched well by Drew Henderson who until that point, had little to do. 

Half Time: Byron Rovers 0-0 ALC Rangers

Whatever the ALC management said at half time must have worked, as they started the half with an early chances through Matthew Girling and Blair Davies. Within ten minutes of the game resuming Byron saw the ever present Chris Steadings forced off through injury before ALC’s Green charged down a defensive clearance, crossing for Davies only to have Byron Rovers keeper Ben Melvin recover to save well after being beaten to the ball by Davies. The resultant corner producing a goalmouth scramble which was bundled over the line by Green to give ALC the lead.


ALC looked to capitalize on their new lead as they produced high pressure and well worked passing down the channels. Their pressure paid off within five minutes as Marr cut in from the edge of the area to shrug off two defenders and finish with aplomb from 8 yards out at the far post.

Rangers’ second goal seemed to be the catalyst that Byron needed, within five minutes Ryan Crant picking up the ball in his own half carried the ball before releasing a fierce drive from thirty yards out which found the top corner of Drew Henderson’s net leaving the keeper no chance.

Byron continued to press after Crant had pulled back a goal and were rewarded for their perseverance when the ball again found Crant, this time closer to goal, who again found the back of the net firing a shot across the goal to find the bottom corner this time. Byron could well have secured all three points as they continued to press ALC until the death and will have been pleased with the heart they showed.

The second game of the group stages was Tass Thistle and Dyce BC. Tass Thistle would be looking to get some revenge on Dyce BC after the 9-1 defeat in the Scottish Cup, but they looked up for the challenge.

The first half kicked off, and it wasn’t long before Dyce BC were in control. Dyce were putting a lot of pressure on the Tass Thistle defence but were struggling to create chances as the Tass defence were playing well.

Dyce were passing the ball about well and looked dangerous when attacking, but Tass were struggling to win the ball. The first half finished 0-0, Dyce BC were the best team but Tass Thistle were defending brilliantly.

Half Time: Tass Thistle 0-0 Dyce BC

The second half was a different story though as Tass Thistle came out fighting. Tass started attacking more, and looked like they could score.

It was end to end football as both teams were desperate to take the lead. Dyce came close to scoring when Liam McDonald hit the cross bar with a powerful header, the ball then bounced into the box and the Tass Thistle defence managed to scramble it away.

Tass then countered from this when Marc Walker sprinted up the field with rapid pace then played a great through ball to Fraser Brydon who was through on goal but Morgan Cook made a spectacular save.

Despite Tass Thistle stepping up their game, Dyce BC took the lead. Dyce made a quick attack up the field and a ball was played across the box to Ryan Silvers who controlled the ball well and places it in the back of the net beautifully.

Dyce nearly doubled their lead when Cameron McArthur hit the cross bar with a rocket free kick. Tass Thistle continued to try and find an equaliser but Dyce BC managed to hold on to their lead, and when the final whistle blew Dyce walked away with the three points.

Dyce BC of Aberdeen were crowned winners of the Scottish Youth Champions League 2013 after a convincing performance, running out 3-0 victors over St Peters of Paisley. 

Both of these sides met in the group stages which saw Dyce edge past the Saints 2-1. Both teams would later find themselves successfully reaching the final after both pulling through dramatic semi-final penalty shoot-outs.

It was Elliott Byres who would open the scoring for an in-form Dyce squad. Dyce continued to pressure with a well placed header meeting the head of Byres, sending the ball over the bar.

The second goal came from a shot outside the box which couldn't be held by the Saints goalkeeper, giving Kyle Harker a simple finish from the rebound, doubling their lead.

The Saints looked to have reduced the deficit in the closing stages of the half, only for the referee to give a free kick on a foul on the Dyce keeper Morgan Cook.

Half Time: St Peters FC 0-2 Dyce BC

The first of the second half chances came for St Peters. Callum Scullion broke into the Dyce box, forcing a good save from the excellent Dyce shotstopper Cook.

The Saints continued to search for a potential route back into the match, with their number 7 Shaun Clark catching a sweet volley, however sending it straight into the hands of Cook.

The third goal was always going to be crucial in this final fixture. This went the way of Dyce as they were award a penalty. Taker Craig Gill made no mistake, smashing home Dyce’s third and final goal.

As the referee signalled the end of the game, it brought a close to the second annual Scottish Youth Champions League with Dyce BC deservedly being crowned champions.

Congratulations to Dyce BC on their victory and Josh Milne on being awarded Player of the Tournament.

This semi final of the Scottish Youth Champions League was certainly one to remember as Dyce came away victors on penalties after a 2-2 draw in 40 minutes. In the early stages of the first half both sides enjoyed spells of chances and possession, but neither side could really test the goalkeepers.

In fact, it required what appeared to be a touch of good luck for Gow to get the opening goal. A good ball in from Jamie MacDonald was aimed towards the back post and it seemingly took the last touch off a Dyce player as it ended up in the back of the net to give Gow Valley a 1-0 lead in the semi-final.

Yet, only moments later Dyce managed to find a reply thanks to Kyle Harker. He found himself just inside the box on the left hand side and managed to sneak the ball past Kieran Craw in the Gow Valley goals.

Dyce then almost took the lead themselves only minutes from the half-time whistle. Thankfully for Gow Valley the attempt hit the post and the rebound was harmless, but Dyce had certainly show intent and fight to get back into the game.

Half Time: Gow Valley 1-1 Dyce BC

In the second half we were treated too much of the same. A Dyce shot appeared to be goal wards after the Gow Valley keeper was caught out of position. Luckily for Craw, Dylan Hollands was on the line to clear the shot away and deny Dyce the goal.

However, they were only denied by a few minutes as they eventually found themselves in the lead. A wonderful piece of counter-attacking play was worked cleverly by Dyce and Josh Milne applied the finishing touch, giving Craw no chance for Gow.

With only seconds remaining it appeared to be that Dyce had booked their place in normal time. Yet, Gow Valley had other ideas on their final appearance as a squad. A possible handball against Dyce was ignored as Darren Wilson grabbed the equaliser at the death and send the game directly into a penalty shoot-out.

Full Time: Gow Valley 2-2 Dyce BC

On penalties it was Dyce who went first and Craig Gill set the standard by scoring the first penalty of the shoot-out. It was down to Jack MacDonald to repeat the process for Gow, however his shot hit the crossbar and immediately Dyce had an advantage.

Cameron McArthur stepped up for the second penalty to see if he could capitalise on the advantage but he was denied thanks to a Craw save. Gow therefore had a chance to get back on level terms, but Jamie MacDonald, so accurate from free-kicks throughout the day sent his penalty wide.

Dyce therefore had another opportunity to compound Gow’s misery, but their third penalty hit the post. With miss after miss, Gow had another lifeline. Lee Stubbs was to take Gow’s third penalty, only to be denied by a Cook save.

Josh Milne then stepped up and finished Dyce’s fourth penalty and put them 2-0 up on penalties with only two Gow chances remaining. It was a lot of pressure on Connor McGrane and it was a bit too much as his penalty was also saved by Cook, giving Dyce a 2-0 victory on penalties after four penalties each.

Dyce BC came away victors 2-1 despite initially being behind in the second game in Group B. It was St Peters who took the lead though thanks to a penalty. With only a few minutes gone it was up to Fraser Burns to finish off and the number 10 did so with ease.

However, it didn’t take long for Dyce to bring the game back to a draw. A ball whipped in from the right hand side of the pitch was met by the head of Josh Milne. A super finish from a super striker and the game was finely balanced at 1-1 after ten minutes.

Callum Scullion tried to find an immediate response for his St Peters side and put them back in the lead. Good play from the striker gave him the opportunity to go for goal, but a decent shot was matched by a decent save by Morgan Cook.

Despite Scullion’s best attempts it was Dyce who took the lead and five minutes after their first goal they had turned the game around completely. This time it was number 10 Cameron McArthur who applied the finish for Dyce, slotting it home past Ryan McLaren in the St Peters goal.

Half Time: St Peters FC 1-2 Dyce BC

The second half was an all-round quieter affair with only a few scrappy chances for both sides. This suited Dyce who went on to claim the three points and a 0-0 second half score line was testament to both goalkeepers and defences.

Aberdeen Sports Village was the venue for the North Region Girls League Cup finals and the first was between Aberdeen and Deeside. The game got off to a flying start and the first goal of the game came as early as the 4th minute. Deeside's Eilidh Mitchell saw her effort from just outside the box go low into the bottom corner of the net.

Deeside then had a strong shout for a penalty after the ball appeared to strike the hand of Aberdeen centre back, Erin Heeps but the referee didn't approve. Just seconds later and Deeside had another chance to score. Katie Becker drove into the box but Jodie Harper made a strong save to deny Deeside doubling their advantage. Aberdeen's first sight of goal came in the 12th minute of the game when Taylor Shea's curling effort skimmed off the crossbar.

Aberdeen brought the game back on level terms on 18 minutes as Julia Innes' shot from the halfway line caught the keeper out and found the top left corner of the net.

Aberdeen then took the lead for the first time in the game just two minutes before the interval. Emily Neish left foot strike from the edge of the penalty area went past Katelyn Corsar in the Deeside goal and changed both teams' half time team talks.

Half Time: Aberdeen FCL 2-1 Deeside Girls

Both teams were quick out of the traps at the start of the second half. Just a minute after the restart and Deeside's Mitchell had an ambitious effort from distance went just over the bar. Aberdeen then had a chance in the 34th minute and again it fell to the feet of Neish. Becky Carstens played a good ball to Neish who showed good touch and skill to beat the defender before seeing her shot saved by Corsar. Deeside were then awarded a free kick in a very dangerous area and Becker stepped up to the plate but her effort was saved well by Harper.

However, just moments later Becker had another chance and this time she got the better of Harper as her driven effort flew past Harper and into the bottom corner of the net.

Aberdeen were looking to regain the lead immediately and Shea drove into the box but Corsar was on hand again to make another fine save and keep the game in the balance.

Deeside were the next team to score as a corner wasn't held by Harper and unfortunately for her it fell straight to the feet of the waiting Becker who volleyed the ball into an empty net and sent the loud, encouraging fans into raptures.

Aberdeen were awarded an indirect free kick just a few moments after the restart. Shea played the ball to Carstens but her shot went over and wide of the target.

Deeside's Mitchell then scored her second in the 45th minute and looked to secure cup glory for her side. Her shot from the edge of the box gave Harper no chance.

Deeside then had a flurry of chances to really kill the game off. Firstly, Sophie Taylor was one-on-one with Harper but the keeper stood her ground and denied Deeside getting the killer 5th goal. Taylor had another chance just moments later but her effort went just went wide of the target this time. A double chance then fell to the feet of the same striker. Her first effort was blocked by Shea and then her second effort was saved by Harper.

Aberdeen grabbed a goal back as the game was well into its dying embers and it was a great goal to round off a memorable game full of wonder goals and all round good play. Innes was the scorer again and it was almost identical to her first of the game - a strike from the halfway line that flew all the way into the back of the net.

Emily Neish held the ball up well for Aberdeen and really made them tick while on the attack and deserved her goal. Taylor Shea also had a solid game and drove her teammates on throughout the game.

Eilidh Mitchell scored a fantastic double on cup final day and was always looking to bring other into the game too. Sophie Taylor got into key areas for Deeside and was unlucky not to score a few goals.

Aberdeen FC Ladies Under 15s overcame an injury-hit Deveronvale side on Saturday lunchtime to claim the North Region Girls League Cup.  Injuries meant the Vale side included 10-year-old Flora Bruce as well as 11-year old Jodie Strachan.  A broken wrist to their normal keeper also meant centre-back Katie Rose Allan would have to play in between the sticks for the first time. 

The odds were stacked against Deveronvale but they started on the front foot and dominated the opening five minutes.  Nairne McAllan had a good chance in the opening minute before a Donna Paterson rocket from 30 yards hit the inside of the post and somehow stayed out. 

Aberdeen were not favourites for nothing though, and they scored with just about their first attack on six minutes.  Lauren Gordon got the goal in spectacular fashion with a looping effort from a long way out, wide on the left. 

Gordon went close with another shot on nine minutes, but the keeper parried her shot away.  It was 2-0 in the 21st minute though, thanks to a composed finish from Amy Phillips, finding the bottom corner from inside the box.

Vale reacted well to the second goal and Rachel Morrison crashed a shot off the Aberdeen bar on 25 minutes.  Morrison was then involved again two minutes later when the ball fell to her in the box.  But the striker dragged her shot wide when she had more time than she thought.

Gordon was inches away from grabbing Aberdeen’s third moments before halftime.  She was stretching to get on the end of a ball across goal at the back post, but couldn’t quite get there.

Half Time: Deveronvale Girls 0-2 Aberdeen FC Ladies
The Dons started the second half the livelier, with Megan Reid jinking past a defender in the box before having her shot blocked.  Some superb work on the left from Shannon McGregor in the 46th minute culminated in a dangerous cross being volleyed just wide by Reid.

Deveronvale were desperate to get back into the game and Morrison was put through one-on-one in the 48th minute, but shot straight at the keeper. 

Five minutes later Steff Norris had a half chance for Vale as there was a bit of a scramble in the box, but Aberdeen got it clear.

With Vale throwing bodies forward looking to get a goal back, they were left short in defence and the Dons took advantage with seven minutes to go.  Gordon split open the defence with a brilliant ball through to Phillips who coolly finished past Allan into the bottom corner. 

One minute from time Vale grabbed a well-deserved consolation in the shape of a magnificent Donna Paterson free kick from wide on the right.  It was Aberdeen’s day though, and they would have the last word as Isabella Robb blasted home emphatically at the near post from close range in the dying seconds of the game to give her side a 4-1 victory.

All in all, Aberdeen were deserving of their win, but huge credit must go to Deveronvale for putting up the fight they did.  A special mention must also go to the youngsters Flora Bruce and Jodie Strachan who held their own playing against much older players and did not look out of place.  Take nothing away from Aberdeen though who played some excellent football and crucially took their chances.

Rachel Morrison caused the Aberdeen defence problems and looked dangerous all game.  She could easily have had a goal or two on another day.

Amy Phillips of course bagged an important double, but also proved a handfull for Vale to deal with, and always looked like scoring.

Amanda Allan, Coach of Deveronvale, said: "We’re absolutely chuffed to bits with the performance that the girls put in.  We’re, on average, four years younger than the Aberdeen side.  Unfortunately our keeper broke her wrist on Sunday, so Katie who was our centre-back decided to step in.  Obviously she was nervous, she’s never ever played in that position before but she knew that it was for the team.

He continued: "We had to draft people in, on the pitch there we had seven girls aged 11 and 12, so they put in a sterling performance.  We had quite a few chances, one-on-ones, just never took them.  Aberdeen took their four chances which was unfortunate for us, but they never stopped.  Young, young side, great determination from them, and I couldn’t be more proud."

Derek Gordon, Coach of Aberdeen, said: "Absolutely superb, the girls worked really hard.  I feel sorry for Deveronvale as well because their keeper had broken her wrist before the game, and they had to put a substitute in which benefitted us but didn’t help them.  I do feel for Deveronvale that way, but our girls deserved it.  They’re working hard, training three times a week, so yeah, absolutely brilliant.

He continued: "We had some good goals.  Lauren Gordon scored, she’s a left-footer and that first goal with her right foot outside of the box was absolutely superb.  We took our goals well, I’m happy, absolutely delighted."
