Dee Club overcame a two goal deficit to secure a 2-2 draw with League leaders Coupar Angus in the U19’s Presidents League Fixture held at Lochee Park. On a bitterly cold autumn afternoon both teams served up an entertaining and highly competitive contest.
 
Each side came into the fixture on the back of draws in their previous league game, with Dee Club finishing 2-2 against Forfar West End and Coupar Angus securing a point against Dundee Villa.
 
Buoyed by their status as League leaders, Angus started brightly and enjoyed some sustained possession in the opening period. Despite enjoying most of the play it was the home side who carved out the first opportunity of the match. Sean Colvin’s well weighted through ball releasing Lewis Mitchell who fired wide of target.
 
With Dee Club pushing forward they were almost caught on the counter and had to rely on goalkeeper Liam Dunn being alert to a long ball from the Angus backline.  
 
The League leaders had another opportunity moments later. Good work by Callum Boath won a free kick in a dangerous area with Fraser Morrison’s floated delivery finishing just beyond the onrushing attackers.
 
At this stage of the contest both sides were pushing forward, but the game was lacking a moment of magic. Mitchell’s audacious overhead kick was magical, but was well blocked by the Angus defence.
 
Morrison continued to be influential going forward for the away side and had three efforts in quick succession that were well held by Dunn. Up at the other end of the park intricate passing released Collins into space and his chipped effort finished wide of target.
 
With both sides creating promising attacking openings it was inevitable the first half would see the deadlock broken and it was the league leaders who struck first. Good quick passing between Andrew Brymer, Boath and Lewis McNaughton forced a corner with Stuart McKenna’s pinpoint delivery nodded in by Callum Todd.
 
The home side responded well to falling behind and Kieran Neave’s free kick called Jack Shaw into action. The Angus 'keeper ensuring it was his side who would head into the break with the advantage.

Similarly to the first half, Angus started brightly and were further ahead on 47 minutes, Morrison being rewarded through a composed strike past the keeper. Having doubled their lead Angus continued to press and were unlucky not to add another when Boath directed an effort across goal.
 
Just when it appeared the momentum was with the away side, Dee Club found a way back into the contest. Good play by Ryan Muir gave Declan Collins the chance to deliver a fizzing ball across goal which was turned into the net by the Angus defence on 51 minutes.  
 
The home side began to push for the equalizer and Muir was again heavily involved seeing an effort flash just wide of target.
 
Dee Club were to restore parity on 76 minutes with Lewis Mitchell taking a touch and placing the ball into the net, ensuring the contest would end all square.
 
Overall both sides demonstrated good footballing ability throughout and further highlight’s the competitive nature of the East Region’s U19’s Presidents League.
