U16's South East Region Cup Rnd 3
03 November 2013
Today Milton travelled to Broxburn in the south east regional cup. There was a strong wind sweeping up the park which was making difficult playing conditions.
This was expected to be a difficult fixture, as Broxburn play a physical game. Milton started with the wind at their backs but it was Broxburn who took a shock lead on the 7th minute when they were awarded a free kick 27 yards from the Milton goal, this was swept in and landed on the head of the Broxburn forward to nod it past the Milton Goalkeeper.
The match was still being spoilt by the winds and Milton were dominating throughout stages of the match. Broxburn were playing the long ball tactics which was being dealt with comfortably by the Milton defence and midfield.
On the 29th minute, Milton got a deserved equaliser when Edward McKenna crossed the ball to the back post for Craig Hunter to lunge at the ball and head home from close range, giving him his 11th goal of the season.
Half Time: Broxburn Athletic Colts 1-1 Milton 98's
The second half started with Milton playing into the wind. The ball was now on the ground as much as possible and they started to play some excellent football. Milton, like the first half, had chances, but were denied by the goalkeeper or the post.
In the 60th minute, the Broxburn forward got through on a one on one situation and was clipped by the Milton keeper. The referee awarded a penalty from the incident which Broxburn converted 2-1. Broxburn had 1 other effort on goal in the second half.
Milton pushed towards the end of the match but it wasn't to be for the travelling side.

Murieston United
Milton 98's
27 October 2013
The week Milton travelled to Murieston in the west Lothian league. This was expected to be a difficult game as Murieston like Milton remain unbeaten in the league and both teams are certain to be title contenders towards the end of the season.
The match started at a fast pace with both team keeping the ball on the ground and playing football. There was a cross wind which didn't affect play too much

On the fifth minute Milton took the lead. Milton got a free kick from inside our own half, goalkeeper Cameron Ayres swept it into the Murieston box and it was met by Adam Beirne who was advancing at the left hand side of the penalty area and he cooly lobbed it over the Murieston keeper.

With this being two  top teams in the league it was good game to watch as the football ability was at a high standard throughout the game, and with this in mind the match attracted a large crowd with players and coaches from other teams in our league onlooking.

Milton doubled the lead on the 27th minute. Robbie Sneddon took a free kick from 35 yards and flighted the ball into the box, where it was met by Craig Hunter about 4 yards out to lash it past the helpless keeper.

Murieston had a couple of chances in the 1st half but they were dealt with comfortably by the Milton goalkeeper.

Half time: Murieston United 0-2 Milton 98's 

The second half started at the same pace as the first with both teams playing the ball on the ground. Milton were dominating in the middle of the park and breaking up any through balls by Murieston. 
Milton's third goal could be goal of the season. Cameron Ayres rolled the ball out to Robbie Sneddon on the left, he advanced forward and played onto Adam Beirne who took it up the left channel crossed it into the box for Craig Hunter who smashed it past the advancing keeper from 6 yards. Excellent football back to front. 0-3.

Murieston were gradually falling out of the match now and Milton still upping the tempo. On the 65th min it was game over as Jordan brown took a corner from the left for it to be met by our top scorer Scott Duncan from 3 yards for his 15th of the season.
Full time: Murieston United 0-4 Milton 98's

Milton have great depth within the squad that once again, despite the changes being made, there was no affect on the team on the park.
Milton have also now gone 800 league mins without conceding a goal, and remain undefeated in the west Lothian league winning 9 and drawn 1. 

Players men of the match was Scott Duncan and Morgan Reid.  Milton wish Murieston all the best for the rest of the season.  Next week Milton are away to Broxburn in the R.egional cup.

Milton remain undefeated after draw with Shotts

Under 16's WLAYFC
20 October 2013
Milton this week were home to last seasons champions Shotts. This was a top of the table clash by 2 teams who will be in contention again this season.

The match started at a fast pace with both teams creating chances, no one was able to capitalise on this, however throughout the game both goalkeepers were on top form.

The football on display was excellent and with both teams producing a high level, this seemed to cancel each other out and for most of the 1st half this was a midfield battle. Craig Hunter had a shot from distance save by the keeper, and we had other efforts off target.

Half time: Milton 98's 0-0 Shots YMCA
The second half started similar to the first and Milton were unlucky on a few occasions after stepping up the play.
Morgan Reid came close when his 23 yard effort went over the bar and Jordan brown free kick from 30 yards also went over the bar. On the left hand side Adam Beirne was unfortunate when his shot from 7 yards was saved by the Shotts goalkeeper and Craig Martin was also unlucky when his attempt lob the advancing keeper from 14 yds was blocked.

The second half was as entertaining as the first and credit to both teams for making this a good game of football to watch. Both teams pushed for the winner towards the end of the half but were unable to find the net.

Full time: Milton 98's 0-0 Shotts YMCA
Milton have now gone 9 league games, winning 8 and drawn 1 and still to concede a league goal yet. This is an excellent achievement in the West Lothian league.
Players man of the match was Morgan Reid
Well done guys. Milton wish Shotts all the best for the rest of the season.

Whitburn FCA
U16's  West Lothian County Cup R1
13 October 2013
The week saw Milton play at home to Whitburn in the first round of the West Lothian county cup. Previously in these fixtures Milton have been victorious but on this occasion Whitburn were certainly there to make it difficult.
Milton's league form has been outstanding having not conceded a goal in 8 games, however it was Whitburn who took the lead in 8 minutes after a high ball was not cleared and the Whitburn striker lobbed over Cammy Ayres who was advancing.
This was a match that was going from end to end, although Milton were having more of the play, they were unable to capitalise on chances. Whitburn have very much improved since our last outing against them and were very dangerous when they were attacking the Milton goal.
Half time: Milton 98's 0-1 Whitburn FCA
The second half started with Milton being a bit more hungrier and it took just 5 minutes for Adam Beirne to find the ball 21 yards out and hit an excellent shot on his weaker foot over the goalkeeper for his 6th goal of the season. 1-1.
Milton were still having more of the play and also closed down the channel on the left where most of the Whitburn attacking was coming from. Again the second half was becoming more like the first. Milton were creating chances but were unlucky on a few occasions only to be denied by the Whitburn goalkeeper who was on top form.
On the 78th minute Whitburn were awarded a corner. The ball played in and cleared by the Milton defence, which fell to a Whitburn player who played it through to their centre forward who put them 2-1 up.
With 2 minutes remaining the match seemed to be falling away from Milton. That was however until the 80th minute, when Jordan Brown played the ball to Craig Martin on the left side of the box who slotted it past the goalkeepers right hand side from 14 yards, giving him his 7th of the season. 2-2.
End of regulation time: Milton 98’s 2-2 Whitburn FCA
Extra time started and again it was Milton who were pushing for the winning goal, but like the rest of the match, it just wasn't falling for them or they were being denied. Whitburn also had chances to score in extra time but the match ended 2-2 and penalties were next up.
Milton eventually won on penalties 4-3 after Cammy Ayres pulled off an excellent save from the Whitburn no.11's penalty.
Credit still has to go to Whitburn who certainly gave us a game today and will certainly take points off a lot of teams this year.
Milton wish Whitburn all the best for the season.
Players man of the match was awarded to the goalkeeper Cammy Ayres
Well done Milton. Onwards to the next round.
Final score: Milton 98’s 2-2 Whitburn FCA (4-3 on penalties)

Penicuik record overdue first win

Salvesen CFC
Penicuik Athletic YFC
SERYFA Under 19's Division 2
12 October 2013
Penicuik were going into this game on the back off picking up their first point of the season last weekend with a hard fought 2-2 draw away to Tranent Blues and were in confident mood.
Head Coach Tommy Walker said "Our performances have deserved more; the boys continue to play some great football and focus on their passing game combined with great movement".
Penicuik started the game on the front foot, taking the game to the home side, the best chances falling to Penicuik, with them hitting the bar from a cracking 25 yard strike, a 2nd pulling off a great save from the Salvie keeper pushing a shot from just outside the box over the bar. The half ended with a super piece of link up play just on 18 where a run into the box after a great  one-two, seen the Salvie keeper pull off another fine save down low to ensure that the sides went in at the break all square.
Half Time: Salvesen 0-0 Penicuik Athletic
Penicuik started the 2nd half just as brightly, and it wasn’t long before the deadlock was broken when Penicuik charged wide down the left with good link up play before the ball was crossed low into the 6 yard box and slotted home. It was no less than Penicuik deserved.
It was then that Salvesen had their best spell of the game and it was their route one football that paid off, Salvie got the ball in behind an otherwise solid back 4 to dispatch the ball beyond the Penicuik keeper.
Penicuik didn’t stop working hard and getting players behind the ball when not in possession and within 10 mins, Penicuiks slick passing game saw them again take the lead.
At 2-1 the game was not beyond Salvie, and it was only with some grit and guile from the Penicuik players that saw them hold onto a really well deserved 3 points.
Tommy Walker said that "it’s great credit to the boys, they have stuck with our coaching philosophy, get the ball down, lift the head, get the ball out from feet nice and early, have everyone comfortable with the  ball & no matter the result, continue to focus on our touch, control, and combine this with great movement"
Full Time: Salvesen 1-2 Penicuik Athletic

The Pumas continued to set the pace and it came as no surprise when they added to their one goal lead with a fine headed goal from Ryan Moffat however to their credit Edinburgh City they managed to pull one back with a fine worked goal of their own just before half time Kyle Wilcox again broke free to coolly finish a good passing move.
