Pitfour FC vs Monifieth Athletic U17

The DDYFA Dave Pullar League’s top two will clash this weekend as leaders Pitfour take on Monifieth Athletic.

The two have not met in the league since the opening match of the season back in August, and on that occasion it was Pitfour that came out on top 1-0. That win has given them the three point lead they have at the top of the table.

They have been chased all the way by Monifieth, and a win for the Tayside team at the weekend will bring them level at the top, making the race in the league extremely exciting.



Maryfield United vs Bridge of Earn U16

These two will be putting their league campaigns on hold for the moment as they compete for a place in the J Cord Cup Final this weekend.

There is very little to separate the two in terms of their league campaigns. Bridge of Earn sit at the top of the Bodycare Complementary Clinics League, four points ahead of Maryfield who have played one game more.

Bridge of Earn won the last meeting between the two securing a fairly comfortable 3-0 win in the end, a result that Maryfield will be keen to put behind them with a win this weekend.

A final spot against the winners of the second semi final between Montrose Youth and Dundee West awaits the winners of what is sure to be a classic cup semi this weekend.


AM Soccer vs Blue Brazil U15

Moving over to Fife and the top two in the First Division in the FFDL clash as AM Soccer host Blue Brazil in a match that could see a new leader at the top.

Blue Brazil hold top spot for now, sitting two points ahead of AM Soccer having played three games more than their opponents this weekend.

AM Soccer have the advantage in that they have more than one opportunity to catch up at the top, but a win this weekend would be a massive boost as it will put them at the top of the pile going into the rest of the season.


Benarty Astros vs Glenrothes Strollers U19

It’s not often that you get one game involved in consecutive games to watch articles, but the rivalry developing between Benarty Astros and Glenrothes Strollers is so enticing it is difficult to avoid.

Last week the two faced off in the semi final of the League Cup, with Benarty Astros picking up an impressive 4-1 win. Now the two will clash in the quarter finals of the Fife Cup.

The loss will have hurt Strollers, who have not tasted defeat very often this season, and they will be keen to put the record straight with a win this weekend.


Montrose Youths vs Fairmuir BC U15

And finally a place in the final of the Jean Pierre Babin Cup is on the line as Montrose Youths and Fairmuir BC face off this weekend at Kenny Park.

These two have had outstanding seasons so far, and both still find themselves well in the title race in the G Taylor League, along with the league leaders and fellow semi finalists Maryfield United.

Montrose find themselves with the unenviable task of trying to end Fairmuir’s unbeaten record this season. The Dundee side have a perfect record in the league and have also been flying high elsewhere.

Fairmuir have a Scottish Cup semi final to look forward to against Greig Park Rangers and will be looking to continue their quest to win as much silverware as possible this season.

Forfar Boys vs Brechin City YFC U15
 
The title race in the DDYFA W Mills League is hotting up this weekend as Forfar Boys will look to move into first place with a win over fellow challengers Brechin City in an all Angus encounter.
 
Forfar have been in fine form this season, and sit in second place in the league for now, having played two games less than league leaders Dundee Sporting Club. Forfar have only suffered one defeat in the league this season, at the hands of their opponents this weekend.
 
Brechin are also still making themselves heard in the title race, despite sitting 10 points behind the leaders. Like Forfar, Brechin also have two games in hand over Dundee Sporting Club, but will need to win this weekend if they want to give themselves a shot at catching up at the top.
 
If their last meeting is anything to go by, a 4-3 win in favour of Brechin, this game should be an absolute cracker, and definitley worth watching for this looking for an even contest.
 
 
Carnoustie Panmure vs Dundee Sporting Club U15
 
Elsewhere in the W Mills League, leaders Dundee Sporting Club face a tough trip away to take on undefeated Carnoustie Panmure.
 
Sporting Club have been brilliant this season and rightfully sit at the top of the mountain. A win this weekend would put pressure on those behind them to keep up the pace, including their opponents this weekend.
 
Carnoustie hold the distinction of being the only undefeated team in the league this season, having secured a perfect eight wins from eight. They sit further down the league, having played much fewer games this season, but a win against the leaders would be ideal for a team looking to make up ground.
 
Pitskelly Park looks like one of the places to be this weekend for another entertaining and gripping game of football.
 
 
East End Boys United vs Kelty Hearts CC U14
 
Moving into Fife, we have a very interesting tie as Kelty Hearts make the journey to Dunfermline to take on East End Boys United.
 
East End Boys have had a fantastic season so far. They remain unbeaten in league competition and sit in a prime position to move into top spot. They currently sit four points behind league leaders Kirkcaldy Inter.
 
Klety Hearts hold second place for now, just one point off the top. A win for them could not only hand them top spot, it would bring them further away from the approaching United, who currently have four games in hand over the top two.
 
 
Glenrothes Strollers vs Benarty Astros U19
 
The top two in the AFYFC U19's League compete for a place in the final of the AFYFC League Cup.
 
Glenrothes Strollers hold an undefeated record in the league this season so far, with nine wins from nine games giveing them a three point advantage over their opponents.
 
Benarty Astros have played one game more than their opponents and sit three points adrift. This will be the first meeting of the teams this season and it's sure to be a fantastic contest as two evenly matched teams fight for their chance at silverware.
 
 
Kelty Hearts CC vs Kennoway Star Hearts U17
 
Another cup semi-final rounds off our games to watch article this weekend as Kelty Hearts and Kennoway Star Hearts battle for a place in the final of the U17's League Cup.
 
Kelty Hearts go into the game as joint league leaders of the U17's League, a full 11 points ahead of their opponents this weekend. They've played one game more than leaders Hill of Beath Hawthorn, but remain very much in the hunt for silverware.
 
Kennoway Star Hearts are unbeaten in the league this season and hold five games in hand over the league leaders, on top of that they already hold a win over Kelty Hearts. 
 
It will be interesting to see how this contest turns out.

Monifieth Athletic vs Broughty United U17

Pitfour FC have been impressive in the DDYFA Dave Pullar League and currently sit nine points clear at the top of the table. The two teams hoping to catch them, Monifieth Athletic and Broughty United, face off this weekend in one of the games of the region this weekend.

Monifieth Athletic know that a win this weekend is absolutely necessary if they hold any hopes of catching up to their Perthshire based rivals. They currently sit nine adrift but have the benefit of two games in hand. Wins in each of these games are vital in keeping the title race alive.

Broughty United, on the other hand, have more of a mountain to climb. Like their opponents, they also have a nine point gap to close, however while Monifieth have played two games less than leaders Pitfour, United have played two games more. A win this weekend will keep hopes alive.

These two last played each other back in October, with Monifieth taking the three points in a 6-3 victory at Monifieth High School, but this Sunday’s game is hard to call. Weather conditions could have a big impact at the usually blustery Riverview. The team that handles the conditions better will find themselves with a huge advantage.

 

Dundee Sporting Club vs Dundee West Reds U14

This match has the potential to have huge ramifications for the promotion race in the DDYFA Watson McInally League. 

Dundee Sporting Club have been fantastic this season. They sit at the top of the league and are in prime position to take the league title come the end of the season. They’ve only lost one game this season, a surprising defeat to Carnoustie Panmure, and have a seven point lead at the top.

Dundee West Reds have had a decent season so far and can be proud of what they have achieved. They are currently sitting fourth in the table and are some distance behind Sporting Club. 11 points separate the two sides.

This match can have a major impact on the league if Dundee West Reds can produce the win they are more than capable of achieving, which would open the door for second placed Ferry Athletic to close the gap if they win their match against Broughty United Panthers. 

The previous match between the two saw Sporting Club secure a narrow 2-1 win. Old Glamis Road is set for what is sure to be an interesting game.


Monifieth Athletic vs Dundee West Royals U13

The Cafe Royale League will see it’s first meeting of the top two this season when Monifieth Athletic and Dundee West Royals.

It’s been a fantastic season so far for the Royals, who remain undefeated in the league, with a 100% record. That form has put them clear at the top of the league table, eight points ahead of their nearest challengers.

Monifieth Athletic have also taken to 11-a-side football in impressive style. They have only lost one game so far this and hold one game in hand over their opponents this weekend. This is a game where you feel that Athletic need to win if they want to keep their title hopes alive.

It will be interesting how these sides play in their first meeting against each other, especially given that weather conditions are expected to have a major effect on how each side will approach the game.


Kirkcaldy Inter vs East End Boys United BC U14

Moving over to Fife now and we have another exciting top of the table clash as Kirkcaldy Inter and East End Boys United face off in the FFDL Division 1.

Inter have played well in this season and find themselves at the top of the table on merit. The Kirkcaldy side have only lost two games in the league all season and will be there or there about in the title race come the end of their campaign.

East End Boys United have picked up where they left off last season. Last season’s East Region Cup finalists are still unbeaten in the league this season, with five wins and one draw leaving them just four points off the top of the table.

Whilst East End still have ground to make up, some would argue that Inter really need the win more than their opponents this weekend. Kirkcaldy have played four games more than United have this season and a win would offer them some breathing space at the top.

For United though, a win would give them a massive boost to confidence, closing the gap to just one point with the amount of games in hand that they have.


Hill of Beath Hawthorn vs Kelty Hearts CC U17

The match this weekend between Hill of Beath Hawthorn and Kelty Hearts has the potential to be not just one of the most important in the East Region, but in the country this weekend.

Hill of Beath have been riding high at the top of the league and still remain undefeated this season. Having drawn only one game as will in the league they have racked up the points and sit on the summit on merit.

They do however have plenty of others keeping up the chase, making this one of the most unpredictable leagues in the country. Kelty Hearts sit in second place, just three points off the top having played a game more than Hawthorn.

A win for Kelty would go a long way in keeping their name in the title fight, whilst Hawthorn could solidify their position at the top and strike a major blow to one of their main rivals at the same time. Expect a really close contest as these two face off.

Football is the beautiful game. Many children and adults openly confess to having a love affair with the sport, for as long as they'll live. And there's certainly no shortage of romance when it comes to the cup. You've probably heard all of the cliches, however, we may just have embarked on a football love story that makes all others look like a casual fling.
 
On Saturday 21st September at Murrayshall Hotel in Perthshire, two avid football fans will walk down the aisle. Nothing too unusual about that of course, but we're just getting started. Callum Kay and Danielle Millar, both coaches at Fair City FC Under 13s (2007s), will tie the knot this weekend - with the entire squad in attendance! 
 
When the group of players was assembling to begin their club football journey, they were in need of a coach. Word was put out and two outstanding candidates came forward. Neither knew of each other, not did they have a kid at the club, but both seemed happy to give up some of their time and share the coaching duties. Their names were Callum and Danielle.
 
Coaching a group of players who are about to go from primary to high school and progress to 11-a-side football is no mean feat. However, both coaches knuckled down to create great results on the pitch and off it, have created what can only be described as a 'family'. 
 
A team spokesperson said: "Callum and Danielle are two amazing coaches and a lot more than that to our group of young players. Despite neither having a kid at the club, they dedicate almost of their free time to coach our kids for the love of the game. The whole squad is invited to their big day and if it's possible, they're even more excited than they are for a match."
 
Rumours that the proposal took place during a pre-match teamtalk or that the team's upcoming trip to the Madrid Cup will be their honeymoon, have been dismissed! However all joking aside, YFS is incredibly happy that two true grassroots heroes have found each other with a little help from a group of 12 year-olds and can't wait to hear all about their big day.

League Champions 18/19: Maryfield United 2005

Written by
 
Maryfield United’s Watson McInally League victory is testament to the hard work the players have put in, believes co-manager Jordan Davidson.
 
The ’05 squad didn’t have the numbers to field a starting eleven last summer, but thanks to some shrewd recruitment and a highly motivated team, Maryfield took the division by storm, winning 23 of their 24 league games and going undefeated all season.
 
They also won the Mac Brown Cup for the first time in ten years, marking a return to form for a club that has historically been successful but had been toiling in recent years.
 
And their double success is all down to the player’s efforts, says Davidson: “Last pre-season we had only eight or nine boys for our first training session, but nobody complained once.
 
“We’ve worked and we’ve worked; each session has been to a great standard and we’re seeing the benefits.
 
“We’ve got a good team spirit; a good core to the team; and they all work together, we don’t have any superstars – although we do have some really, really talented players.”
 
After initially looking like they might struggle to field a team, Maryfield ran away with the League, picking up 70 points and averaging over four goals a game – including dominant victories over the likes of Kirrie Thistle, Dundee Sporting Club and Newtyle United.
 
At the other end of the pitch, a rock-solid defence that conceded less than a goal a game helped grind out results on the rare occasions that the forwards weren’t firing:
 
“All areas of our team are really strong,” said Davidson. “We’ve got defenders who go and win headers and tackles; we’ve got midfielders who like to get on the ball and play, and who aren’t afraid of mixing it up a bit; and in the wide areas we’re devastating with Dilon [Gurung] and Arran [Duncan] who on their day are up there with the best players in the region.
 
“As a team, we like to play football in the final third. We like to knock the ball about and express ourselves, and get the ball wide and create lots of chances.”
 
After winning every game to the turn of the year, Davidson described the moment he realised that the title was in sight, and recalls his personal highlights from the season.
 
He said: “When it came to about Christmas time and we’d won every game I thought ‘we’ve got a really good chance of winning this league’, and from there we only went from strength to strength.
 
“Obviously, [a season highlight] would be winning the Cup for the first time in a decade – it was fantastic defeating Mearns.
 
“Also, we played last years champions and Scottish Cup quarter-finalists, Ferry Athletic, in the first round of the Scottish Cup. Nobody gave us a chance but we went and beat them 3-1 in one of our best performances of the season.”
 
With title success comes promotion and a host of new challenges for next season. For Davidson himself, he is making the step-up to senior football as assistant manager to new East of Scotland side Kinnoull FC.
 
He won’t be leaving Maryfield behind though, and there will even be the opportunity for members of the squad to gain experience training with Kinnoull, so Davidson is optimistic they’ll have another successful season:
 
“Our aim for the upcoming season is to see the boys improve and hopefully finish top half of the top league,” he said. “We’re under no illusions; we know going up a division will be tough, but as long as we keep progressing, we’ll be happy.”
 
It won't be easy, but if the last year is anything to go by then nobody will bet against Maryfield making their mark this season.

Website Working Wonders for Maryfield United

Written by
 
Maryfield United 2005’s co-manager Paul Davidson believes the recent upturn in the club’s fortunes wouldn’t have been possible without the success of their new website.
 
The 05 team take on Mearns in the Mac Brown Cup Final this Sunday in what will be this squads first cup final – and a chance for the club to win their first silverware in ten years.
 
And Davidson, who takes charge of the squad alongside his son Jordan, doesn’t think they’d be in this position if they hadn’t been dragged into the 21st Century by their new website:
 
“A year past Christmas I spoke to the Chairman and told him we’d have to go in a different direction,” he said. “The club was in the dark ages.
 
“We were too busy chasing up fees and communication was non-existent – there was maybe a wee post on Facebook but it was horrific.
 
“Now, we’ve got fees on direct debits; have group texts and we are all in a WhatsApp group.
 
“It was a great start, but I remember thinking – and I didn’t think it would be possible – but I wanted to get a website on the go.
 
“All the top teams in Scotland have them and it really gets your name out there.”
 
So, with lots of hard work and plenty of help from parents Kenny Mitchell and Gordan Landsburgh (who are now the site admins), Maryfield launched their brand-new website on January 23rd.  
 
Built on Pitchero.com, not only does the website keep track of results and fixtures, but it automatically updates team and player statistics and (thanks to the tireless efforts of Kenny and Gordan) is chock full of articles, photos and video content - meaning it truly is a one stop resource for all things Maryfield United.
 
Davidson said: “It was awful at the start.
 
“As we were getting closer and closer I found myself up until two or three in the morning trying to get the next part done.
 
“But now we’re getting the benefit of it you appreciate that sometimes a little pain is worth it in the long run.
 
“We advertised for players last year and got nothing – no phone calls or anything.
 
“Now, we get calls all the time because of the website because people are seeing what we’re doing.
 
“If you were a player and you knew you were going to get a video of your goals online and people would be able to watch it then that’s an attraction.
 
“They can see their name and check their stats; it’s good for their ego.”   
 
And now Maryfield – a team who have historically been very successful – look set to reap the rewards for the attention their website has generated.
 
Not only do they have a cup final to look forward to this weekend, but they’re also sitting undefeated at the top of their league and know that four wins from their final nine matches will clinch promotion.
 
But, as far as Davidson is concerned, the advantages of the website go far beyond results on the pitch:
 
“One of the main reasons for having a website is keeping people up to date who can’t go to games,” he explained. “Gordon and Kenny are at the side of the pitch and they update things as soon as a goal goes in with the scorer and time – I could be walking about in Spain and within three minutes I’ll have a notification on my phone telling me what’s going on.
 
“Also, this content will be here forever.
 
“If I wanted to find photo’s of when I was playing as a boy I’d have to go rummaging through the loft, but if one of these boys want to show their kids their goals in 20 years-time then they can get up the video.”
 
Davidson takes great pride in the response to the website and reckons other teams could benefit from adopting a similar online presence."
 
“The feedback we’ve had has been fantastic,” he said. “Most other teams have social media – as we do ourselves – and some even have websites but many of them haven’t been updated in years.
 
“A lot of people ask us “where do you find the time?” but to be honest, now that we have everything set up and we have people helping we don’t have to worry about these things anymore and we’ve got more time than ever before to focus on the football.
 
“We’re benefiting from it, so maybe it’s something other teams might look at?”
 
Maryfield United meet Mearns YFC at North End Park this Sunday at 12pm in the final of the Mac Brown Cup.

A Scottish charity that aims to positively impact young people’s lives through sport and physicality has been shortlisted for the 2019 People’s Projects Award.
 
If successful in the public vote, Skilz Academy could win £50,000 worth of National Lottery funding to help expand their Arbroath-based ‘GLOW For It’ project to other areas of Angus and Dundee.
 
For the past six months, Skilz Academy – in partnership with Active Schools Angus – have been running Glow Sport programmes three times a week, engaging with a combined 200 young people a week - all completely free of charge.
 
During the two-hour long sessions, participants don glow in the dark face paint and accessories under UV lighting as they play sports including football, dodgeball and basketball.
 
Academy Manager Rachel Osborne sang the praises of the programme, revealing that the opportunities provided have been snapped up by local children, regardless of their sporting experience or ability.
 
She said: “The Glow project has already proven to be a success with the young people, especially those who lack confidence and self-esteem.
 
“Parents and teaching staff have all loved the sessions we’ve been delivering.
 
“It helps young people ‘glow’ – they can be whoever they want to be when the lights are off.
 
“They add face paint and don’t feel judged by any of their peers.”
 
And now, with the help of National Lottery funding, they’re hoping to take the experience beyond Arbroath and into the wider community, in order to give even more young people the chance to get involved.
 
If awarded funding, Skilz Academy also plan to support Street Sport projects and start a new DJ School programme, all in the hope of bringing children out of their shell and helping them achieve their true potential.
 
Voting for the People’s Projects Award ends on Monday 15 April, and the winners will be announced on Thursday 18 April at 6pm during the STV News broadcast.

Plenty of cup competition to get through in the DDYFA this weekend as well as two interesting ties in the Fife Cup. Here are five games to keep an eye out for in the East Region.
 
 
Broughty United Pumas vs Montrose Youths U13's - Cafe Royale League
 
Both of these teams are battling for the top spot in the Cafe Royale League and a win for either side on Sunday could put them in real contention.
 
Montrose won the last meeting between the two sides, securing a narrow 2-1 victory at home which Pumas will be keen to avenge. Montrose are currently one point ahead of Broughty, however United have one game in hand.
 
 
Ferry Athletic Yellows vs Dundee North End Youths - Maryfield/G Kerr Cup Semi-Final
 
Two teams amking up the top of the DDYFA U19's league face off for a place in the Maryfield/G Kerr Cup final. Ferry have the head-to-head advantage between the two having beaten North End 3-0 earlier in the season.
 
North End on the other hand have a five point advantage over Yellows and, despite Ferry having three games in hand, will definitely feel as though they can secure their place in the final.
 
 
Pitfour FC vs Fairmuir BC U16's - John Clark Motors Cup Semi-Final
 
These two have been very impressive this season and this is highly expected to be an instant classic. Both sides hold a win over each other and occupy the top two positions in the Maryfield League.
 
Fairmuir occupy first and hold a three point advantage over their opponents, but that will certainly have no impact in this game. Expect two evenly-matched sides going ll out.
 
 
Blue Brazil vs Kelty Hearts CC U16's - Fife Cup Quarter Final
 
A place in the semi-finals of the Fife Cup is on offer for both of these sides. The two occupy first and third in the AFYFC League.
 
Kelty hold the advantage, having won their previous two meetings and hold a six point lead over Blue Brazil, but in a cup competition form goes completely out of the window.
 
 
East Fife YA vs Abernethy U19's - Fife Cup Quarter Final
 
It's the tie of the round in the U19's Fife Cup as top two East Fife and Abernethy go head-to-head. Abernethy won the only previous meeting between the two when they beat East Fife 3-0.
 
Abernethy are currently two points ahead of East Fife in the AFYFC League and hold two games in hand, but East Fife will view this as a great opportunity to claim a big scalp in the competition.
 
Cup semi-finals in Dundee as well as the beginning of the East Region Cup take centre stage in the Region this week. Here are five games to keep an eye out for this weekend.
 
Dryburgh Athletic vs Ferry Athletic U17 - Stephen Elwood Trophy - Semi Final
 
Two of the top side in the DDYFA this season face off in what will be an intruiging cup tie on Sunday. Ferry Athletic are on a high after reaching the Scottish Cup semis whilst Dryburgh have already booked their place in one finals already this season.
 
Dryburgh beat Ferry's Scottish Cup semi opponents Fairmuir last week and will be looking to complete the double this weekend.
 
 
Dryburgh Athletic CC vs Jeanfield Swifts Blacks U17 - Stephen Elwood Trophy - Semi Final
 
While that is happening, the second semi-final in the Stephen Elwood Trophy will take place on not only the same day, but also the same field. 
 
Both sides are competing for the league title this season and this one could go either way as the teams have yet to meet each other in the league this season. There will be plenty of spectators at both games on Sunday for sure.
 
 
Newtyle United vs Broughty United Panthers U14 - East Region Cup - First Round
 
The East Region Cup starts this weekend and two teams competing for the Watson McInally League title will face off.
 
Three points separate the two sides going into the game and it will be interesting to see how these two sides fare as they face each other for the first time this season.
 
 
Kennoway Star Hearts vs Bayside FC Athletic U14 - East Region Cup - First Round
 
One of the more intruiging all Fife ties in the East Region Cup, these sides occupy the second and third spots in the FFDL.
 
The sides have met on two occasions so far this season, with Bayside emerging victorious on both meetings, but Kennoway will be looking to make home advantage count as they book their place in the second round.
 
 
Kirrie Thistle vs Brechin City YFC U17 - DDYFA Dave Pullar League
 
Two teams in need of points as they occupy the bottom two spots of the Dave Pullar League.
 
Kirrie have just one win to their name this season, coming against Brechin earlier on in the campaign. Brechin will view this as a potential opportunity to earn their first win of the season.
