Clark Drive Girls U14’s v Renfrew Girls FC

FT: Clark Drive Girls U14s 1 – Renfrew Girls FC 10

A glorious sunny morning for a game between 2 teams that had not met before. Both teams were hindered by their 1st choice goalkeepers being unavailable. It was a keenly contested first 15 minutes until Renfrew scored, which then encouraged them to play further into the Clark Drive half. This higher press coupled with getting used to the grass park allowed Renfrew to score a further 2 goals before half time. 3-0 at the break. During a well deserved half time break, Renfrew coaches Ian Whyte, Alan Harvey and Jack Reid encouraged their players to be braver on the ball and to run at the very well drilled Clark Drive defence, which had been playing a high offside line successfully. The 2nd half was a more one-sided affair, as Renfrew scored 2 very quick goals and the heat took effect on some players. 6 more goals were scored in the half for Renfrew, with Clark Drive scoring a goal that their hard work deserved. There were many good performances for Renfrew that deserve a mention, striker Eilidh McCallum who scored a hat trick, Grace Hammond who marshalled the defence well however the player of the match was the captain Winnie Harvey who controlled the game from the centre of midfield and also managed to score a hat trick. Thanks to the coaches and players of Clark Drive for their hospitality.

Glenburn Miners 14s v Arbroath Youth FC U14s Yellows

FT: Glenburn Miners 14s 0 – Arbroath Youth FC U14s Yellows 8

Arbroath made the long journey to Prestwick, where the sun was shining, perfect conditions for two tier 1 teams meeting in the Scottish cup.  Arbroath settled the quicker and used their experience at 11 a side football to ensure a healthy lead at half time.

Credit to Glenburn who worked hard throughout, meaning the second half wasn’t as high scoring as the first.  The Arbroath defence had to look lively on several occasions but managed to shut out the Glenburn attacks. The Glenburn girls worked hard right to the end and were unlucky not to score a consolation goal when a powerful shot came off the Arbroath crossbar.  The Arbroath experience at 11 a side, skill and physicality showed, and the final score was Glenburn 0 Arbroath Youth 8. Thanks very much to Glenburn for the fine hospitality they put on for the Arbroath players and parents at the end of the match.  Much appreciated and a great opportunity for both teams to get together in the sunshine. Glenburn are a first year 11 a side team, who showed great resilience and commitment and have deservedly been put into tier 1.  We wish them all the best for the rest of the season and look forward to seeing how they get on in the league.  

Arbroath player of the match was Libby Rea, for her dominant midfield display. Arbroath Youth Yellows coaching team of Alan Rea, Andy Ruxton, Stuart Clark and Linsey Burnett were down in Prestwick with the team.

Edinburgh South Phoenix v Aberdeen West End Girls FC

FT: Edinburgh South Phoenix 3 – Aberdeen West End Girls FC 5

Edinburgh South Phoenix coaches George & Jonny reflect on an exciting end to end game which was 3-3 at full time. Aberdeen scored another 2 in the last 5 minutes of extra time to proceed through into next round.

The team and parents stayed back to enjoy some pizza and snacks with us afterwards kindly provided by Danny’s Grill, a local Edinburgh south takeaway before making the drive home. We have a team rule of never picking a player of the match as they all play their part and today all 11 players in our team worked their socks off for 90 minutes without a single sub so it wouldn’t be fair to pick out one, but coaches George & Jonny couldn’t be any prouder of them and they should be very proud of themselves after that battling display. Some excellent football played by both teams.

Steven’s side won an exciting game 5-3 after extra time; We were leading 1-0 and 2-1 before Edinburgh South took a 3-2 lead. We pulled it back to 3-3 and that was FT. We managed to score twice in second half of extra time to win 5-3.  It was a really hot day and I don’t think we could single out a player.

Stirling Albion Junior Academy U14 Red v Drumchapel United Blacks

FT: Stirling Albion Junior Academy U14 Red 3 – Drumchapel United Blacks 2

Well done on a great performance to our GU14 reds who won their match vs Drumchapel United Blacks today in Forthbank.

Ross County v St Mirren Women & Girls Academy

FT: Ross County 0 St Mirren Women & Girls Academy 5

Our U14s were in action in Alness this afternoon, as their adventure in the Scottish Cup came to an end after defeat to a very capable St. Mirren side.

Our visitors imposed themselves from the off, and for the opening minutes, the girls did well to weather the storm. The girls were beginning to get a foothold in the match, but St. Mirren took a deserved lead after exploiting space in the home defence. St. Mirren doubled their lead shortly afterwards to lead by two at the break.

The second half resumed with the County girls showing more grit, and they began to get further up the park with greater regularity than in the opening 35 minutes. St. Mirren were able to make the game comfortable when they fashioned an opening that was finished clinically.

With the girls tiring, St. Mirren were able to find more space, and added two more goals before the finish.

Congratulations to the St. Mirren girls and their coaches on a thoroughly deserved win and some tremendous goals. Best wishes to you for the rest of this season – go and win the cup!

Finally, a huge thank you to the army of volunteers who cooked, baked and prepared post-match refreshments for both teams, as well as those who provided and erected the gazebos.

St Mirren Women & Girls Academy U14s coaches Mark Harris & Fiona Kidd reflect on their win this afternoon.

After a frantic start when both sides tried to stamp their authority on the game, St Mirren broke the deadlock midway through the first half. Five minutes later we made it 2-0 with a long-range effort. In the second half Ross County came out tried to find a way back into the game but we made it 3-0 on the 60th minute with a fantastic strike into the top corner. In the final ten minutes we scored 2 more goals to secure the 5-0 victory. 

Credit to both side who played some great stuff and put on a real footballing display for the crowd. 

Hard to pick a player of the match as each player was excellent, it was real team performance.

Bo’ness United Community Football Club U14 Navy v Inverkeithing Swifts Blues

FT: Bo’ness United Community Football Club U14 Navy 3 – The Swifts Blues 5

Bo’ness United coaches Paul O’Connor, Stephanie Dawson and Ammarah Aslam look back on a brilliant Scottish cup tie, which was very evenly matched with the two teams playing very different styles.

Bo’ness played more possession based playing through the thirds whereas Inverkeithing played a more direct physical game. It made for an exciting competitive game.

26mins – Inverkeithing scored the first goal from a freekick which was wrongly awarded to them when it was the Bo’ness player who was fouled. 

30 mins – Bo’ness equalise with a through ball to the striker who strode away from the defence and finished with a powerful shot over the GK.

32 mins – Inverkeithing go 2 – 1 up with a long ball over the Bo’ness defence who had kept a high line and played the striker off. 

34 mins – Bo’ness equalise with another great through ball and a composed finish with a strike to the bottom right corner.

Half-time 2-2 with Bo’ness having more possession and chances but Inverkeithing constantly threatening with their direct play.

55 mins – Bo’ness score to go ahead 3-2. Well worked play down their left wing with a cross field pass to the striker who goes through and strikes high over the GK. Bo’ness on the ascendancy.

58 mins – Bo’ness worked the ball well down their right wing with them getting in behind Inverkeithing defence. The Bo’ness player drives into the penalty box and cuts it back only to be completely wiped out by the defender, and the player is injured. Amazingly, the referee does not award the penalty.

60 mins – Inverkeithing attack down the left wing and crosses the ball. Bo’ness fails to clear the cross, and the ball falls to Inverkeithing, who cuts it back across the goal for a tap in. 3-3.

The game could go anyway at this stage.

65 mins – Bo’ness were attacking with their defence on the halfway line. Inverkeithings’ two strikers were both offside in the attacking half. Inverkeithing win the ball and play a long ball over Bo’ness defence. Again, everyone expecting the referee to blow for offside doesn’t, and Inverkeithing goes through and scores to make it 4-3.

 66 mins – Inverkeithing break after Bo’ness attack down the right and the winger strikes the ball from around 20 yards which power high and over the GK to score an absolute worldy to make it 5-3 which puts the game to bed so late on.

It was an incredible game to watch played in the right spirit.

Well done to both teams for such an entertaining game and good luck to Inverkeithing in the next round.

Goals: Maddie Stoddart x 3

Assists: Romy Brander x 1, Fern Jamieson x 1, Jessica Parsler x 1

CPOTM: Evie McKinlay

PPOTM: Francesca Dawson

PGPOTM: Francesca Dawson.

Tremendous effort today team and you can all be proud of your performance. Let’s now concentrate on smashing the league.

Inverkeithing coaches Andrew, Craig & Jonny reflect after their team successfully navigated 2 regional preliminary rounds, and today the Under 14’s Blues had an away trip to Bo’ness, thankfully not too far to travel for a 09:40 kick off. 

It took the girls the first 10 minutes to really settle into the game today, when they did, they mostly controlled the game. The first half ended 2-2, Lilly scored directly from a free kick before Bo’ness scored on the break, really good work from Leia and a composed finish put us back in front, unfortunately we lost another goal before half time to come in at 2-2. 

In the second half, Bo’ness scored to take the lead with another breakaway goal, from then on, the girls upped it a bit and showed great resilience to keep going. Olivia got us level with a goal her consistent hard work deserved, then Ava stole the show with two cracking goals to give us a 2-goal lead going into the last 5 minutes. From there, the girls held on well to take the win and progress to the next round.

Some really good strong committed performances across the park today, well done girls.

Burnbank FC v Penicuik Athletic YFC

      FT: Burnbank 7 – Penicuik Athletic 2

With goals from McLelland ⚽, Hynes ⚽⚽⚽, Sharkey ⚽⚽ & McLean ⚽ Burnbank coaches reflect on what was a very encouraging performance from their team. 

Penicuik started the game well dominating midfield and causing Burnbank’s defence problems especially no. 10 Ruby Reid. Burnbank took the lead with McLelland finishing off a great corner from Docherty. Almost from the restart Penicuik could have equalized after a great run from no. 10, beating four players but played it past the post under pressure from the on rushing goalkeeper Gribben. Burnbank doubled their lead after a good finish from Hynes. Penicuik then pulled a goal back after slack defensive play. Burnbank’s two goal lead was restored when Sharkey finished from 8 yards. Penicuik then pulled another back with a ball through the middle that the defence missed and a good finish from the edge of the box. Burnbank regained their two goals lead with McLean scoring after a scramble in the box from a corner. Second half Burnbank took a grip of the midfield and began to play some good football scoring the fifth with another good finish from Hynes. Penicuik were looking decent on the break, but Barker, Docherty and Silvestro held firm with some well-timed challenges. Hynes completed her hattrick with a good run and finish. Penicuik continued to battle and went close hitting the crossbar twice from free kicks and forcing a great save from Gribben. Burnbank completed the scoring when a high looping cross from Hynes which was headed home at the back post by Sharkey. 

Player of the game: Hynes with a hat trick and fantastic assist for the final goal.

Burnbank FC Blues v Rossvale Thistle 14s

     FT: Burnbank Blues 3 – 1 Rossvale Thistle

Burnbank Blues coaches Alan English, Alison Cairney and Stephen Sharkey share their thoughts:

Burnbank started the match well utilising the left wing and scored a goal from here, McMahon crossing in for McKenzie to score. Unfortunately, a bad injury to Burnbank centre half changed the dynamic of match and Rossvale capitalised to equalise. 

HT score: 1-1. 

Burnbank scored again 10 minutes into the second half with McKenzie finishing well from 15 yards. Both teams competed well and in the last minute Sharkey broke through to score low past the Rossvale keeper. Really competitive cup match played in great spirit by both teams. 

Players of the match: English and J.Webb – Winning all the battles in centre mid. It was pleasing to see the girls working together, judging kick outs really well and getting to the ball before the first bounce. 

Queen of the South v Milton Girls

FT: Queen of the South 0 – Milton Girls 9

Barry Wick and David Scott reflect on their game away to Dumfries with Milton Girls. After a 2-hour bus journey to Dumfries the sun decided to come out just in time for the game starting. A quick start had Milton on the front foot and ahead early with goals from Lacey, Autumn and Mya.  More goals were to follow before and after half-time ensuring our progress into the next round.  This was a great advert for girls’ football with both teams playing good football.

Player of the game was Autumn who was fantastic throughout chipping in with four first half goals and an all-round brilliant attacking display.

Kintore United U14 Girls v Giffnock SC Girls U14 White

FT: Kintore United U14 Girls 10 – Giffnock SC Girls U14 White 1

Kintore’s coaching team of Tony Waldram, Steven Park and Roma McIntosh reflect on what was an exciting match this afternoon.

Today Giffnock travelled up from Glasgow for the first proper round of the Scottish Cup.  We’d taken the decision to hire Kemnay Academy Astro so that there were decent changing and toilet facilities for our visitors from down South because we felt that a Midmill portaloo queue wasn’t the best way to roll out the welcome mat!

Our girls looked a bit nervous and hesitant in the opening exchanges, but they soon got into their stride and the goals started flowing. They were shared around by a number of girls, as we showed our squad is full of talented players. Ten different girls were involved with goals or assists today. An impressive all-round performance from the team.  We looked solid and dominated from the early stages. They knocked the ball around well and caused lots of problems for the visitors with their quick passing and off the ball movement. Defensively we looked solid again today, so it was very frustrating to lose our clean sheet right at the end.  But it was hard to begrudge Giffnock that little moment of magic because they’d chased and closed us throughout the match – but I think were perhaps not used to playing against girls with such speed and directness.  

Maisie was a rock yet again, with her and Ruby looking impenetrable at the heart of our backline.  There was a lot of great link-up play between Lois and Iona in particular.  Abbie had another effective game, as did Kirsty with her intelligent hold-up play and clever through balls.  I said last week that it was only a matter of time before the goals started flying in for our talented No.10, and she got more valuable minutes in those legs as we slowly build up her match fitness.  She bagged six goals, and probably would have got a load more if we’d given her more than half the game. It was wonderful to see her hunger and enthusiasm for scoring goals, and it would have been easy to give her the Player of the Day. But we have to give it once again to Iona, who bossed the match scoring two and assisting five. There were a number of times when she could have gone for glory herself, but she chose to set up a team-mate for an easy tap-in.  If that howitzer had gone in just before the end, I think it would have capped an almost faultless display!

Thanks to the Giffnock Girls, parents and Coaching staff who were all magnanimous in defeat.  The game was played in a competitive, yet fair spirit throughout, and the fact that they never gave up and chased to the final whistle is testament to their determination and desire to keep fighting to the end.  We wish them all the best in their upcoming season and hope that they enjoyed their trip up North despite the result not going their way.

St Andrews & East Neuk Girls 14s v Inverness Caledonian Thistle WFC 14s

FT: St Andrews & East Neuk Girls 14s 2 – Inverness Caledonian Thistle WFC 14s 10

Inverness Caledonian Thistle WFC U14s coach Ally Munro talks us through their first round win this afternoon at University of St Andrews.

We travelled to a very sunny St Andrews today for a great match. We went 1-0 up early in the game with a goal from Emma Balfour who was great for us on the right wing. St Andrew’s roared back to make it 1-1 and it was game on! We managed after a bit of a shaky start to go into the break 5-2 up. In the second half Holly Thompson came on and scored 4 goals in a 20-minute spell and though St Andrew’s had a few chances we managed to take control of the game.

Player of the match for me was the St Andrews goalkeeper- some of her saves were world class and the score is by no means how the game played out; she was excellent.

AWR U14s Blacks v Hamilton Academical 14s Regional

FT: AWR U14s Blacks 1 – Hamilton Academical 14s Regional 10

Yesterday our Blacks team had a Scottish Challenge Cup game against Hamilton. We knew it was going to be a difficult game against a really good and well organised team. We started off well and with Danni in goals, she pulled some great saves and managed to stop Hamilton from scoring early on. Hamilton eventually got their goals from great play and went in 4-0 at half time. In the second half our girls kept trying and never gave up, thankfully Danni was on great form again pulling off some really good saves. We got a goal back to make the score 5-1 but Hamilton put on a really good show and in the end the result was a well-deserved 10-1 to the opposition. As we knew before the game, it was a difficult one but to see the girls still smiling after the game was great. They gave absolutely everything they could and didn’t stop. Well done to Rebecca again for stepping up from AWRG U12 Girls and to Danni for the best display I’ve seen from her yet. Despite that we gave POTM to Olivia, who didn’t stop running about, closing the ball down and trying to encourage her team on. For me that never give up attitude is key and needed in every game we play in.

KFA Girls 14’s v Shotts Bon Accord Girls Blacks

FT: KFA Girls 14’s 1 – Shotts Bon Accord Girls Blacks 3

Shotts reflect on their win in Round 1. In preparation for the game we decided to hire a Bus so all the girls travelled together to give them a Buzz before the Cup Game! We won the toss and took kick off and our girls were in it from the start, which is something we have been working on at training trying to get them to do this they moved the ball about the park with some great touch pass moves and eventually we got a goal. Then just before half time we scored a second. In the 2nd half Kilwinning came out the traps raring to go and it put our girls under pressure taking us 10/15 min to get back in the game. Kilwinning scored to make it 2 – 1 then Shotts started putting pressure on Kilwinning with a high press which put Kilwinning defenders under pressure. They then took a goal kick and with the pressure of our girls their defender ended up scoring an OG just with 5 minutes to go which gave us a 3-1 win 

Goal scorer for shotts was Zara Buchannan both goals. It was a great game to watch the two teams display some great football.

Shotts Bon Accors Coaches: Ursula McMullan Coach/firstaider and Darren Strang Coach

Athena Glasgow U14s v Riverside Sky’s U14s

FT: Athena Glasgow U14s 7 -Riverside Sky’s U14s 0

Athena Glasgow U14s were at home to Riverside Sky in the Youth Challenge Cup first round, the sun was out, the players were ready, and the scene was set at St Rochs Secondary pitch.

The opening 10 minutes started off with the two teams competing very well. Athena Glasgow went in front with a great lob from 20 yards out over the Riverside GK, after that it was all Athena Glasgow up until half time coming in at the break 4-0 up. Second half kicked off with Riverside putting Athena Glasgow under pressure however some great saves from the GK and some last-ditch tackles form the Athena Glasgow back line saw them keep a clean sheet and go onto score another 3 goals putting them into the last 32 of the Challenge Cup.

Athena Glasgow’s player of the match was Megan. She played with confidence and her work rate and effort was amazing. Her possession on the ball was top notch and she controlled the midfield.

Athena Glasgow’s coach said ‘The team did everything that was asked of them today and remained strong throughout, supporting each other from start to finish, a very good team performance and a great win. We wish Riverside Sky all the very best for the season ahead and have to give them lots of credit as they kept going and their heads never went down.’

Riverside Sky’s coaches Craig F, Craig M, Alex M and Steven A were very proud of their girls today.

The girls played their socks off but sadly it wasn’t meant to be today. The girls kept going, keeping their heads up and pushing on the whole game. The coaches couldn’t have asked for any more out of these girls! The score line certainly doesn’t reflect the performance…so proud of each and every one of you.

We wish Athena Glasgow all the best going forwards in the competition

Coaches have awarded Ella with player of the match today, well done Ella!

Winchburgh Albion v Dunipace FC 14s

FT: Winchburgh Albion 6 – Dunipace FC 14s 2

Winchburgh’s coaches David and Brian share their thoughts on the first-round tie against Dunipace. Glorious conditions today at the Barrett’s in Winchburgh, where we welcomed Dunipace in the challenge cup. A large crowd was treated to a quality game with 2 teams really going for it and we got the first goal after 6 minutes with a 2nd closely following 2-0; Amy C scoring both after 10 minutes played. Dunipace then got back into the game and got a goal on the 20-minute mark this however kicked us back into gear and with some great football orchestrated by our number 5 Jessica we got 2 quick goals again Amy C getting both to take us to halftime 4-0 up. Changes were made at half time and we controlled the game in the second half with Amy C getting her 5th of the game and just before the end of the game Alicia her first of the season with the game ending 6-1.

Player of the match was Jessica Anderson who from the first whistle was outstanding, playing as an attacking midfielder she never stopped running working hard, winning the ball back, setting goals up and unfortunately just failing to get on the score sheet which was all that was missing today. A great performance from a player that’s really settled in well and there’s more to come for sure.

A great game played in great spirit with both teams sharing a BBQ after the game.

David and Brian were delighted with today’s performance and look forward to seeing where the next round takes us and we wish Dunipace all the best for the season ahead.

West Park United U14s Navy v Buchan Braves

FT: West Park United U14s Navy 0 – Buchan Braves 6

With goals from Buchan, Arthur, Butcher 2, Christie, O’Brien Buchan Braves coaches reflect ono a good performance this morning. Buchan Braves started positively, playing on the front foot flashing some crosses into the box but West Park Utd Navy dealt well with this. Braves struggled to break Navy down in the first half until a cross from the right found Chloe Buchan to finish from 6yds to make it 1-0. Navy played some good football to advance up the pitch on a couple of occasions in the first half and Braves defence had to be alert to deal with the danger. HT 0-1 

Second half Braves got an early goal when Louise Arthur, on as a HT substitute, dispossessed a defender and drove into the box to slide a shot past the keeper to make it 2-0. Fifteen minutes into the second half Layla Butcher received a pass from Leila O’Brien after good work from Hailey Gillies and on the half turn sent home a fine composed finish from 12yds to make it 3-0. Layla’s goal started a flurry over a four-minute spell with Sienna Christie slotting home from close range and then Leila O’Brien intercepting a clearance to score from the edge of the box to make it five. Navy remained competitive in the game and brought out a fine full stretch save from Braves GK Yvie Adam to preserve the clean sheet. Layla Butcher scored a fine second of the day when she held off a defender to drive into the box and strike home from ten yards. 

Plenty of good performances from Braves today with Sienna Christie being at the heart of a lot of positive play to earn herself Braves’ accolade of girl of the game.

Calderbraes Football Club U14’s v Turriff United Youth Girls

FT: Calderbraes Football Club U14’s 1 – Turriff United Youth Girls 3

The magic of the Scottish Cup- Turriff girls made the 4 hour journey south on Saturday morning to face Calderbrae Girls at Uddingston for 2nd Round of the Scottish Cup. From the first whistle it was obvious this was going to be a close fought encounter, which then proved to be a brilliant game of football played by two sides who were determined to progress to the next round. A well taken goal put Calderbraes in front mid-way through the first half but Turriff regrouped and Amelia managed to get past two defenders and the keeper to make it 1-1. First half was physical and the referee was kept busy but all the girls remained composed and calm. 2nd half started the same with Adele putting in a beautiful cross from the left which was put into the goals by a Calderbraes player, OG 1-2 Turriff. End to end football throughout the second half with the Turriff defence being kept busy but remaining strong and on their feet and clearing everything, with Aaliyah in goals picking up anything coming her way and making some tremendous saves. A free kick half way through the second half was awarded well outside the box to Turriff. Ava stepped up to take a beautiful strike which went sweetly over the Calderbraes keeper and into the back of the net. 1-3 Turriff FT Turriff coach Ian could not have been prouder or happier with the effort and attitude of the Turriff girls today, couldn’t fault any of them and made each player POTM. He was bursting with pride!! Calderbraes awarded Turriff No 25 & Captain Megan POTM. Turriff awarded Calderbraes No 4 Lily POTM. After the game Turriff were treated to hospitality by Calderbraes, pizza, chicken nuggets, sandwiches and chocolate cake. This went down a treat before the journey home. What a fantastic day and a fantastic advert for the girls game. Thank you to Calderbraes for hosting and all the best for the season ahead.

Bo’ness United Community Football Club v EKFC Girls 14s

FT: Bo’ness United Community Football Club 5 – EKFC Girls 14s 2

Bo’ness coaches Angela Hempstead and Stephen Kelly share their thoughts on today when Bo’ness Utd entertained East Kilbride in the 3rd round of the Girls U14 SWF Youth Challenge Cup, at a fresh sunny Bo’ness. Bo’ness made a great start with an early goal but were soon to be pushed back by East Kilbride looking for an equaliser, which eventually came mid-way through a very competitive first half. Opportunities were being created at both ends but neither side could just not find the back of the net. Eventually Bo’ness managed to take the lead again before half time and could have even extended this lead, as they grew in confidence and pushed for more. Half time and a 1 goal lead for Bo’ness. The second half started off quite tight, with both teams battling to get control in midfield and both defences under lots of pressure. Bo’ness, after a good spell pushing into the East Kilbride half, managed to increase their lead, however this was short lived as another goal was pulled back to make the score 3-2. East Kilbride again put the pressure back onto Bo’ness, with lots of good tackling and battling going on all over the pitch. Bo’ness regained a bit of control toward the end and two further goals in three minutes, making a final score of 5-2 to Bo’ness. There were some amazing performances from many players today, but today’s player of the match was Bo’ness’ Olivia Paterson whose tackling, battling, aggression and never give up attitude, despite having to change position several times, made her a standout on the pitch. Both Bo’ness coaches Angela Hempstead and Stephen Kelly were delighted and so proud of the girls, who now are into the 4th round of the cup.
