Following Harmony Row’s narrow win in the Trans World Soccer SYFA Scottish Cup final against St Peter’s Giffnock North under 21s, we spoke exclusively to Steven Greer about his thoughts on the match.
Obviously the central defender and the squad were delighted with their win:
“We’re all over the moon, for a lot of the boys it was their last chance to win the cup. So to do it we’re absolutely ecstatic with the victory – it’s going to be a great night.”
The match was obviously a close one with the two teams very close in the league table, and the style of the game was as expected for Greer:
“The game went exactly as I thought; a lot of nerves and we knew that the first goal was going to be important, thankfully we got it and managed to hold on and win which is the main thing.”
Arguably, St Peter’s had the better chances and the match could’ve potentially gone in their favour but Harmony Row were resilient after taking the lead and Greer was full of praise for his team:
“Because we took the lead we had something to hold onto during the game, that’s obviously to be expected in games like this, they had a couple of chances towards the end but we were very good defensively. We did very well to sneak the win and thankfully managed to hold on.”
The squad were jubilant after the match and scenes of pure joy awaited the players as they left the stadium; many of whom will be moving onto senior football as they grace the field of youth football for the last time.
Harmony Row have always been a powerhouse of Youth Football and this side only adds to their list of winners at this level.
From everyone here at Youth Football Scotland, we would like to extend our congratulations to Harmony Row and commiserations to St Peter’s Giffnock North – both sides thoroughly entertained all of the spectators in the stands.
