MFC YOUNG 'STARS' RECORD 4-1 WIN
Montrose FC U'16's versus Livingston FC U'16’s
Sunday 17th June
Our U16's hosted Livingston FC under 16’s at Forfar Community Campus on Sunday 17th June, with Livi going into the game as the only team to have defeated our boys in the Club Academy Scotland campaign this season.
The Mighty Mo were keen to make amends for the 6-1 defeat a few weeks ago, and the squad went into the game full of confidence following convincing back to back wins against Elgin City FC and Dundee FC respectively.
Well worked goals from Garnham and Lyle saw MFC lead 2-0 within 15 minutes, with the defence performing well too, thwarting the efforts of Livi who created two very good chances.
Livingston did pull a goal back before the break with the half-time score seeing Montrose leading 2-1.
Into the second half, and Montrose saw a penalty appeal waved away by the referee, but shortly after, strikers Stockton and Garnham combined twice, with each scoring, on 75 minutes and 77 minutes respectively, to stretch the lead to 4-1.
We were able to see out the game, recording an impressive 4-1 victory, a result which means our 16's have now managed to defeat all teams in their section, with just one defeat the only blip in their 2018 Club Academy Scotland campaign thus far.
