PGBC 2005s

On Saturday the boys braved the weather at Parklea to play against each other and then on Sunday 10 boys turned up at Notre Dame and played as 2 separate teams. Within team 1 there was Reece, Charlie, Calum, Aaron and Devlin, with Daniel Colin keeping them right they played some good passes and scored some fantastic goals, Young Aaron Kelly with a particularly spectacular one. Team 2 also worked really well and with Sean T, Logan, Joseph, Kyle and Patrick moving the ball they served up a treat for all spectators. Keep up the good work boys.

PGBC 2004s Orange

On Saturday the Port took on Glenvale back at Parklea. The port started the game well but were unfortunate to concede with a quick counter attack by Glenvale, goals from Raymond Keyes and Marc McDonald had the port back in front but it was Glenvale who were to finish the first half in front. The second half Glenvale started the better of the two teams and were further in front straight from the kick off, a Sean Doherty goal gave the port some hope before Glenvale grabbed another goal.
Looking down and out the boys showed great character to somehow grab the game by the scuff off the neck and start the come-back, Kyle Fuller scoring a double, his second a thunderous header from a Peter Ingram corner, Peter Ingram was to score with a great strike across goal, unfortunately the port ran out of time to grab what would have been a deserved equalizer and should consider themselves very unlucky not to take something from the game. 
Thanks to Marcus Humphrey for their continued support.

PGBC 2004s Black

The Port boys travelled to Ferguslie park this week to take on Bridge of Weir United in an early morning fixture. With the Port goalkeeper McDougall out due to illness, McPhee was brought in from defence to play in goal meaning a shuffle of positions throughout the team. As the game kicked of Bridge of Weir started the brighter of the two teams with the port looking a little disjointed due to the positions change. As the half went on the port boys battled away but it was bridge of weir who took the lead. The remainder of the first half saw bridge of weir add another couple of goals to take what looked like a comfortable lead into half time. With the port boys looking unsettled throughout the first half a change of positions came at half time. As the second half kicked of the boys started a lot brighter having some early pressure keeping bridge of weir pinned back. The midfield trio of Emerson Weston and Creen getting more reward for their hard work in the middle of the park seeing the port pull a deserved goal back. A fine strike by Creen across the keeper’s goal into the bottom corner. This acting like a shot in the arm for the boys who kicked on from here and it wasn't long before they had another back. A tremendous solo run from Weston and a fine strike dispatched leaving the opposition keeper stranded. With Scott and Baxter working hard at the back dealing with bridge of weir attacks and McGlauglin and McBride pressing the ball well up front the boys were working hard to get the equaliser. In the end just running out of time and unlucky not to get more out of this match. A game of two halves indeed with the boys doing well against good opposition given the circumstances. The coaches really pleased with the way the boys brought it back in the second half. Credit to all boys working hard on the day and extra credit for McPhee for his performance in goal. Another game in which the boys will take a lot out of. Goalscorers: Creen, Weston.

Clydebank United 3 PGBC  13s 2

Switching their attention to cup duty, Port travelled to Clydebank to compete in the Winton Murdoch Cup.

In a really even first half plenty of chances fell to both teams. Clydebank did take the lead when they played the ball well through the left and a shot across the Port keeper. Port had many chances in the first half although shots straight at the keeper and past the post saw Clydebank take their lead into half time.

With the rain starting to get heavier the second half got under way.

Clydebank went further ahead after a quick break and switch of play saw Port lost. Port then fell asleep again to let Clydebank stretch their advantage to 3-0. With nothing to lose Port changed their formation to 3-4-3 and went for the game. Straight away good play saw Declan Adair set up Scott Marshall where he made no mistake in pulling on back. Port keeper Dimitris Cameron kept Port in it with a fine diving save and on the counter attack Declan Adair cut inside but found his shot to hit the bar. Ross McKay found himself one on one with the out coming keeper and he won a good 50/50 tackle and the ball fell kindly to Ryan Phillips to slot the ball home. Port kept pressing hard but time wasn't on their side as the referee blew the final whistle.
