PGBC 2005s

On Saturday morning some of the boys were put to the test against an older side at Parklea, unfortunately they lost out but did score a few goals in the 2nd half, a fine bit of teamwork ensured John Rodgers got in on goal and a perfect saw him smash the back of the net. Young Aaron Kelly came on in defence for the Port and played really well, his strong tackling and defending saved the Port a few times. Reece Farrell and Devlin Anderson are improving every week, they are both learning to play as part of a team and with their hard work rate and desire to win they spur the team on. Well done boys.

On Saturday 2 teams arrived at Notre Dame, they each played a few games and they won the majority of these, the boys are determined to improve and some of the passing moves were outstanding. Keep up the good work boys.

PGBC 2004s Black 

The boys entertained Park Moor BC at Parklea this weekend in what turned out to be a real battle of a match. The Port boys getting the match under way making their intentions clear taking the game straight to park moor having some good early possession. As the half went on both sets of boys having a share of the ball with chances at either end and individual battles in all areas of the park. Then a Port move down the left hand side a direct run by Emerson who cut the ball inside to Weston who wins a 50/50 to slot a ball through to McGlaughlin in attack his touch and turn taking the defender out and a shot slotted past the advancing Park Moor keeper. A great team goal to take a deserved lead. The remainder of the half saw chances come and go for both teams with Scott and McPhee solid at the back strong in the challenge and McDougall on hand to pull off a few fantastic stops to make sure the boys led going into the break. A change at half time saw Baxter introduced for McPhee at the back. As the second half kicked of the port boys came right out the traps in fantastic style. With Park Moor kicking off McLaughlin robbed the striker of the ball to go straight at park moor winning two 50/50 challenges in the middle of the park to continue his run and slot a fine strike under the park moor keeper to increase the boys lead. A fantastic solo effort which only encouraged the team as a whole. After the goal the port boys had a great spell of pressure with Emerson Weston and Creen holding a high line to support both McLaughlin and McBride in attack park moor were struggling to get out their own half. The boys creating numerous good chances keeping the keeper busy. The remainder of the half saw Park Moor come back into the game carving out a few good chances of their own but with the Baxter and Scott sticking to their task superbly and the midfield working hard to get back along with McDougall having an absolute blinder in goal they failed to get on the score sheet. In the end the port boys running out deserved winners. Both sets of boys making a great game to watch in what really was horrendous weather conditions. The coaches delighted with the application and desire from all boys on the day. Goalscorer: McLaughlin.

PGBC 2003s

The Port boys ran out victorious on Saturday against local rivals Port Glasgow Juniors. This was a great victory for the boys with every individual playing their part in the game. Well done 

PGBC 2001s 2 Broomfield BC 1

Looking to put last weeks early exit from the cup, Port welcomed local rivals Broomhill to Parklea for the first derby of the season.

The game started with both teams really up for it. Both teams had a few chances but kept each other at bay until a mix up in the Port defence saw Broomhill capitalise and take the lead. Port pushed hard looking to equalise but found the Broomhill keeper in fine form. Port did get the equaliser after a two corners from Brandon McCabe into the box saw the Broomhill pull off some fine saves from the resulting shots, then corner number three was cleared only as far as Sean O'Donnell on the edge of the box who took one touch to control the ball before unleashing a strike high into the roof of the net. Port went looking for more before half time but again the Broomhill keeper was on hand.

The second half was just as action packed as the first with both teams trying to get in front. Both keepers and defences were holding out well until Port's Ryan Phillips was sent clear, he took the ball in his stride and just as he entered the box he was pulled down by the Broomhill centre half to win Port a penalty. Up stepped Declan Adair, who showed great composure, striking the ball high and out of reach of the in-form Broomhill ‘keeper. Port then dug deep giving a great defensive performance to hold onto the win.

Stewarton Annick 0 Port 21s 3 

The Port got off to a great start after a great ball from Liam McColgan to Ross McLaughlin who finished superbly. The boys kept battling away with some excellent football being played. Then a brilliant 25 yard free kick from Colin Stevenson made it 2. At the start of the 2nd half Stewarton pressed but couldn't get passed the in form Robbie Graham. Then Stewarton got awarded a dodgy penalty but yet again Robbie saved and probably changed the game in the Ports favour. Late on in the game the new free kick taker Colin Stevenson done it again with another great finish to put the game to bed. The attitude and commitment of the 21s is getting better every week. Scorers Colin Stevenson (2) Ross McLaughlin, Refs Man of match Robbie Graham
