The boys finally got some sunshine at Notre Dame and both teams went out and played well. It seems that what they are learning at training is being carried onto the pitch on a Sunday and they are all beginning to see the benefits of the team sport.
Some cracking goals came from Sean Tosh for his team, with some excellent work all over the park from Devlin Anderson.

PGBC 2004s Orange
On Saturday the Port Boys took on St Cadocs at Parklea. The Port found it hard to get going from the off and couldn't get a grip of the game. There were too many individual mistakes and with players not tracking back to help out it was a struggle.
St Cadocs took the lead from a quick kick in as the Port fell asleep at the back. With shots far and few between for the Port and the front man getting poor service a few changes had to be made and just before the break Kyle Fuller came of the bench to score with an angled drive across goal.
With the score level at half time the Port should’ve came out flying, unfortunately this wasn’t the case and the Port fell behind and a poor ten minute spell saw St Cadocs score a few goals before a late rally from the Port saw Kyle Diver get on the score sheet.
If the boys had shown the same kind of fight from the start of the second half that they did in the last 5 minutes there’s no doubt the game would've been much closer.

PGBC 2004s Black
The Port Boys travelled to Ferguslie sports complex to take on Glenvale FC in another early morning fixture. As soon as the match kicked of the boys made their intentions clear taking the game straight to Glenvale with the home side struggling to cope with the Ports early pressure, the boys had a few attempts on target with the Glenvale keeper making some important early stops.
The Port boys didn't have to wait long for the breakthrough though, a great opener, a corner kick whipped into the Glenvale box and a fine header dispatched with ease giving the boys a deserved lead.
The remainder of the first half played mostly in the Glenvale half. A fantastic work rate from Emmerson, Weston and Creen in the middle of the park holding a very high line linking up with McLaughlin in attack saw the boys playing some lovely one touch football which really was a joy to watch resulting in some more first half goals being added. Scott and McPhee always alert at the back and McDougall in goal dealing with any Glenvale attacks.
The boys went into half time leading comfortably. As the second half kicked of Mcbride and Baxter were introduced to the match. A shuffle of positions seemed to unsettle the boys for a few moments allowing Glenvale in to score a deserved goal for the way they started the second half and put together another attack or 2.
Another shuffle of positions saw the Port boys settle back into the match and for the remainder of the match it was one way traffic towards the Glenvale goal. A combination of great work rate and hunger combined with clever thinking and good passing saw the Port boys add to their tally with a few more goals.
Every boy contributing to what was a solid and very well organised team performance. The coaches are pleased with the attitude from every boy, the goals coming from all areas of the park, and they are looking for this type of performance to continue in the coming weeks.
Goalscorers: Scott, Weston, Creen, Emmerson, McPhee, and McBride.
Coaches thank sponsor B. Buick and Sons (bodyshop).
The kids travelled to Wemyss Bay on Saturday and a poor performance saw them lose out to an Ardgowan side. Although there were some spells when the boys seemed to play well they lacked in concentration and could never really get themselves into the game. Coaches believe the boys can perform much better and are capable of producing better football, hopefully this will be apparent next weekend.

PGBC 15s 6-2 Cardonald Thistle
The young guns got off to a slow start and went 1 nil down I the first few minutes, however Ciaran Murray made it all square shortly afterwards, before the Port scored another 2 in quick succession to make it 3-1.
It was some slack play from the Port that allowed Cardonald to slip one back however some inspired substitutions for the Port meant they upped the ante against a stuffy Cardonald side and they ran out worthy 6 2 winners.
A special mention to the Ports newest striker Young Jordan Gatens, who hit the bar twice and then scored a beauty of a goal, great debut performance in an all round good team performance.
Goals came from Jordan, Paul Payne 2, Ciaran, Kyle McGuigan and Stuart Barnes.
