The weather produced four seasons in one day at Northfield Academy as Byron Dons took on Newmachar United in the C League Section 1. Newmachar are currently undefeated in the league and are currently 2nd with a host of games to play before the end of the season. The visitors came away from Byron with an extra three points after a 7-2 win at the Dons.

Newmachar made their intent known to Byron early in the game and took the lead with a minute on the clock when United pressed the Dons backline and Damian Brookes finished off a fine move smashing the ball past Thomas Killoh.

Byron attacked at Newmachar shortly afterwards in the hunt for an equaliser and Ewan Milne had a shot which was saved by Konrad Gorczynski in the visitors goal and although Newmachar looked the sharper outfit going forward, Byron were decent going forward themselves although lacked a bit of urgency and support in the final third.

Brookes added his 2nd of the game after 16 minutes with a fine finish to give Newmachar a two goal cushion, Newmachar were to have the majority of possession and the more chances as the half progressed although it wasn’t all plain sailing with Byron having chances themselves.

Sam Milne-Emslie then got himself on the scoresheet to add a decisive 3rd for Newmachar after he received a good ball from Ben Cresswell and the forward struck home a fine finish past Killoh from close range.

Newmachar pressed at Byron immediately after the restart and a couple of minutes later it was 4-0 when a ball from Matthew Petermann found Cresswell who went from provider to scorer and he slotted the ball into the back of the net.

It could have been damaged limitation from that point onwards but Byron reduced the deficit before half time after an attempted pass from a Newmachar defender to the goalkeeper wasn’t dealt with and the ball fell nicely to Josh Merchant who knocked a fine finish past Gorzynski which was probably an important goal to cater for the way the 2nd half was going to shape up.

  • Half Time:
  • Byron Dons
  • 1-4
  • Newmachar United

Cresswell playing in Jack Buchan who knocked in a composed finish. The start of the 2nd half was probably Newmachar’s best period within the game playing lots of fantastic passing football.

Cresswell then added a 2nd on 43 minutes after rounding Killoh and finding the net. It was tough on Byron however Newmachar are a really good team when they click and they have a lot of exciting players within their squad.

Byron started to get into the game more after that goal, Newmachar still had their chances however the hosts started to pass the ball more and be more creative in the game. Dons reduced the deficit once again when a through ball found Ewan Milne who beat the offside trap and guided home a fine effort past Gorcynski, the strikers effort would be best described as a toe poke however a good move and a good strike none the less.

Newmachar completed the scoring for the day with 10 minutes remaining on the clock and it was the goal of the day with Newmachar making some good passes and the patterns of play were really good, the ball came to Sam-Milne Emslie who hit a fine effort past Killoh giving the goalkeeper no chance. Despite letting in 7 goals, Killoh had a good game keeping the score down.

There is no doubt that Newmachar deserved to win the game and if they keep the undefeated run going they will be deserved league champions come the end of the season. The scoreline might be a little bit harsh on Byron however they showed enough signs in the game that they can have a good end to the season. The Northfield side are currently mid-table.

Star Player
Byron Dons
Newmachar United
Josh Merchant - Josh worked hard out wide for Byron and got a goal.
Sam Milne-Emslie - There was a few contenders however I though Sam worked hard for Newmachar and got two goals. Special mention to Caitlin Garner as well, she is a girl and a tall defender and she had a great game at the back.
