The 2005s had 12 boys at Notre Dame on Sunday and all 3 teams played well, bringing what they are learning at training onto the park. Kyle Spark and OJ Brisland played really well and worked hard, and the effort from Sean Reeve and Patrick Bryan should be rewarded as they played lots of great passes and moved the ball well.

PGBC 2006s Orange
The boys travelled to Erskine on Saturday morning and overcame an awful playing surface as well as a good Erskine team to secure a victory. In the 1st half most of the play was carried out in the centre of the park with very few attempts on goal but after the break with some changes being made the came out on top. A battling performance by Peter Ingram in the centre of the park lead to the only goal of the game, young Lyle McDonald finishing a great cross. This was a horrible surface but the boys made the most of it and deserved the victory.
Thanks goes to Marcus Humphrey House for their continued sponsorship.

The Port boys played host to Erskine YFC at the community stadium this weekend in their first match at tier 1, a run of good results seeing the team step up to play against stronger sides at their age level. Right from the first whistle the difference was evident with Erskine having some good early possession and pressure with the Port boys a yard of the pace, the boys then had an attack of their own which was broken down and Erskine hit quickly on the counter with a nice passing move and finish meaning they went in front. Not long after the boys found themselves 2 behind after slack play at the back gifted Erskine an easy goal, the boys rallied though and as the first half went on came more and more into the game finally finding the pace of the match, some nice play and a great passing move down the right hand side saw the Port boys pull a goal back right on the stroke of half time which for work rate alone was merited. In the second half the Erskine boys came out of the traps a yard quicker than the Port boys having been playing at this level a lot longer, they were using the ball better than the boys on the day going on to score a couple more goals, full marks to the Port boys for their work rate and effort and the coaches are convinced playing against such strong opposition will stand the boys in great stead going forward. Goalscorer McPhee.
Players and coaches thank B Buick and sons (bodyshop) for continued support.
The boys ran out winners at Parklea on Saturday after going in at half time a few goals down, they battled hard and were rewarded with some good goals, well done boys.

Port entertained Linwood Rangers at Parklea on Saturday morning. Linwood took an early lead after breaking up the park from deep inside their own half. Port pressed hard and then forced an error from the Linwood defence and forced an own goal to draw even. Jack Anderson then put Port ahead after a long ball forward from Brandon McCabe was laid off by Declan Adair. Linwood pulled level scoring from a goal mouth scramble, before breaking up a Port attack and scoring again to put them in front. On the stroke of half time Declan Adair pulled Port level with a strike from the edge of the box. In a poor second half for Port, Linwood seemed to take control scoring twice on the counter attack. Brandon McCabe's wonder strike from almost half way into the top corner proved to be nothing more than a consolation for Port.
Port are still on the look out for players to strengthen their squad for the step to 11-a-sides, anyone interested contact Ian on 07753846465.

PGBC 14s 3 Alba Thistle 1
With 4 boys missing there were changes to be made from Thursday nights team but they went on to show a good performance. Goals from Thomas Liesk, Captain Ciaran Murray and Paul Payne ensured the spoils. Although they went one nil down very early on the fought back and played some great football at times, a special mention to Connor Hair, stand in centre half who’s assist gave Big Paul his goal. A strong impressive display from Connor Duffy gave him motm again.

Port continued with their Christmas theme of teams a couple of goals start before deciding we need to start scoring at the other end. Port travelled to Paisley with the bear essentials of 11 fit players, and to their credit with the team been shuffled and players asked to play in positions strange to them battled away and should have not lost this game as they dominated this game by a country mile. First half they had been comfortable with their opponents and the wind until the last 10mins when decided to let their opponents open their Christmas presents. Half time with a kick up the back side didn't work as they gave away the third with soft defending from the right hand side allowing it to go up. this was the wake up call and they bombarded the other team for the rest of the game. chances galore fell with that final connection the lacking factor. performance wise, it was a great effort but lessons to be learned " stop giving your opponents gifts". training as normal as Tuesday, the team wish Big Paul a speedy recovery.
All parents are asked to contact Alex with reference to presentation night tickets on Tuesday at Parklea or by phone.

EK FC Golds
Under 17's West region Cup
|East Kilbride FC Golds entertained the defending champions Barrhead YFC in the semi-final of this year’s West Region Cup at the under 17’s age group.
Barrhead took the game to East Kilbride from the first whistle and dominated the opening part of the game. They got an early reward for their work on 9 minutes when the East Kilbride keeper, Jacob Kean, couldn’t hold a fierce Mark McGrory shot and Sam McNeil pounced on the rebound to score from close in.
Within a minute, Kean was again in action as he pulled off a super save from a Frazer McLaughlin shot, tipping it onto the bar and over. It was all Barrhead at this time and with just 13 minutes on the clock, Bani Nhlapo crashed a header off the East Kilbride post after great build up play down the flank from the boys in red and yellow.
It took until the 24 good work down the right resulted in the cross reaching the striker Jordan Craig, who managed to turn and hit his shot off the bar.
A minute later, Barrhead doubled their lead when Fraser McLaughlin played a great through ball from his own half into the path of Nhlapo who outpaced the East Kilbride defence and calmly rounded Kean to stroke the ball into the empty net.
With their heads up and full of confidence, Barrhead continued to press and in 27 minutes a great run from the left hand flank, saw Jack Easdon beat a couple of EK defenders before cutting in and his shot was tipped around the post by the EK keeper.
It was Jack Easdon who threatened again 3 minutes later when his shot just narrowly missed the target following good work on the right hand side.
With just seconds remaining of the half Barrhead felt they should have had a penalty when Jack Easdon was tumbled to the ground as he attempted to connect with a cross following some super over lapping play involving McLaughlin and John Middleton.
However, the referee waived the appeals away and this left the half time score at 2-0 to Barrhead.
Half Time: East Kilbride FC Golds 0-2 Barrhead YFC
East Kilbride came out in the 2nd half with a more determined attitude and took the game to Barrhead . The 59th minute saw East Kilbride’s Troy Maxwell miss a glorious chance which Barrhead’s keeper Mark Parsons pushed around the post. From the resulting corner the impressive Craig Howie rose above the Barrhead defence and only a wonder save from Parsons who tipped the goal bound effort out kept the game at 2-0.
That seemed to spur Barrhead back into life and with 19 minutes of the 2nd half on the clock, a Mark McGrory shot from the edge of the box went narrowly past . A minute later Nhlapo missed with a powerful header from a cross from the right.
Shortly afterwards, Fraser McLaughlin broke from his own half and after managing to beat 3 defenders, shot tamely into the keepers hands. 3 minutes later the same player saw his free kick from the edge of the box just skip past the right hand post.
With time running out East Kilbride made an effort to get back into it and with 14 minutes left on the clock Craig Howie had a shot from about 25 yards that just shaved the Barrhead post.
However, as the game came to a conclusion the effort that both teams had put in started to take effect and the pace dropped with a number of substitutions taking place as well. Despite a last effort by East Kilbride, Barrhead YFC held out for a well-deserved place in the final - their 3rd final in 4 years having won it last year and at under 14’s as well.
