Spartans FC Youth 19s win Division Two

Written by 

Spartans FC Youth won the SERYFA under-19s Division 2 this season, beating nearest rivals Newcraighall Leith Vics by a single point.

They won 16 out of 20 league matches to round off a brilliant season for the North Edinburgh team and head coach John McLean laid the foundations for the success early in the summer.

"At the beginning of June 2014, myself as head coach and my colleague David Hiddleston trialled a number of players in the hope that we could make a serious challenge for promotion from SERYFA Division Two. As things turned out this great bunch of players strove to develop their own skills and their ability to work hard as a team, McLean told Youth Football Scotland.

"After an early set back losing our second game which should have seen the three points come to Ainslie Park the team increased their efforts winning a number of games and the belief grew from there.  They secured top spot on November 1st and stayed there until the season's end. 

"Skill, teamwork, strength in depth of squad, determination and good organisation have been the keys to not only our league success but in achieving two cup final appearances."

Congratulations to Spartans FC Youth, 2014-15 SERYFA under-19s Division 2 champions!
