A bad day at the office

Posted on Saturday, August 29th, 2009

Tynecastle beat us 2 – 0 today at Ainslie Park in a disappointing performance. 

Two changes in the starting line up with Ross Archibald in for Stewart Fowlie and Alex King returning for Sean McAuley.  Tynecastle started brightly at scored after ten minutes with a drive from the edge of the box.  As the first half progressed we had most of the ball and created a few half chances but with little cutting edge.  Donal Henretty and Keith McLeod both had shots blocked in one goalmouth frenzy but Tynecastle were ahead at half time.

The second half started in similar fashion, we had most of the ball but Tynecastle showing great discipline.  They then scored a second on the hour mark and despite a number of corners their ‘keeper didnt have a difficult save to make as the clock ran down.

Team: Flockhart, O’Donnell, Archibald, Gerrard, McKibben (Hoskins 62), Manson (McAuley 68), King, McLeod, Kader (Sivewright 62), Henretty, Malin Sub not used: Fowlie

Attendance 168

The Juniors came back from 2 – 0 down against Pumpherston to draw 2 – 2 in the last ten minutes.  We played poorly and it was only in the last 20 minutes when we showed more quality and commitment.  Adam Perry and Kenny Young scored the goals. Team: Trialist, G Young (Bannon), McLeod, Antoni, Hutchison, Moffat, Scott, Douglas (Reid), Robertson (Cartwright), Perry, K Young Sub not used: Thomson

Our Saturday amateur team went down 3 – 2, losing another last minute goal.  Finlay Clark scored both our goals.
