Written by  Bonnyton Thistle

Fixture: Glenafton v Bonnyton Thistle
Competition: Under 16's Supplementary Cup Semi Final
Date: 22/02/15
On a blustery cold day on a tricky pitch Glenafton decided to use the fierce wind in the first half.
This helped them put Bonnyton under pressure early on but a stubborn, well organised Bonnyton were hard to crack and were coping well against the wind but.
However, Glenafton opened the scoring when a through ball found the striker, his shot was well saved and broke to another Glenafton player, his shot was blocked on the line and at the third attempt the ball was knocked in.
The rest of the half had very few chances as the sides battled against the elements.
Half Time : Glenafton 1-0 Bonnyton Thistle
The second half was all towards the Glenafton goal and Bonnyton with the wind at their backs got back into the game when Jonny struck home a fantastic free kick to make it 1-1.
The momentum was now with Bonnyton and Jonny made it 2-1 with a good run and and an equally good finish.
Bonnyton had chances to finish the game but didn't do so until nine minutes from the end when Jamie made it 3-1 with a fine finish.
Well done to both teams who put on a great show in such poor conditions, a great advert for youth football. 
Full Time : Glenafton 1-3 Bonnyton Thistle
