Celtic U17s 2 Montrose U17s 1

Mo travelled to Barrowfield Training Centre in Glasgow with Parkhead in the background without coach Bridgwater who was attending a course regarding his UEFA B Licence. Messrs Gibson and Hunt were in charge for what is always a very difficult fixure. Mo were also missing injured defensive stalward Rohan Terrell. The pitch at Barrowfield was in outstanding condition and the Mo made a very positive start with Dobbie's "flick-on" striking the arm of the Celtic defender and the referee had no hesitation pointing to the spot. The normally reliable Kieran Thomson struck the penalty well, low and hard however somehow the home keeper dived full length to pull off a great save. The game was played at an excellent pace with both teams doing well but it was the home side who had the "Lisbon Lions" share of the ball. Just when it looked likely to finish 0-0 at half time the Mighty Mo scored an excellent goal. Built up from the back it involved excellent inter-play and passing from Dylan Stephen, Jackson Dobbie and Fraser MacLeod who found Ryan Hunt who cut inside and hit a good shot from 20 yards which the keeper could only parry and Liam Stewart rammed home the rebound. Unfortunately this lead was short lived and Celtic equalised with the last kick of the half with another excellent strike which beat the despairing effort of Fraser Burnett.   

The second half continued in a similar vain with Celtic having the bulk of the possession however the Mo more than matched our illustrious opponents and looked dangerous on the break. The boys were putting on a tremendous show and effort and were extremely unlucky to go 2-1 down when a lucky break of the ball allowed an opportunity in the box for the Celtic striker and he made no mistake. The Mo continued to work hard however there were a few chances at either end but neither team was able to take them and the match finished in favour of the home side by a one goal margin. A really excellent game and a first class effort from the boys against quality opposition and some very positive feedback from our Premier League coach's and parents. A very pleasing performance and we now look to build on this moving into the next Club Academy games.

Team - Burnett, Bisset, Stracey, Terrell, Thomson, Stephen, Stewart, MacLeod, Kalinowski, Hunt, Dobbie, Rose, Smith, Henderson, Wilson

Montrose U17 v Livingston U17

@ Links Park 07-02-16.

The day started badly with poor weather conditions and the referee not turning up however to ensure the game went ahead agreement was reached to allow the Livingston coach to referee the game.

The on-off issues obviously affected the home side with Livingston looking the better side in the early exchanges. Both sides looked as though the poor weather conditions were going to be the winner in this one however Livingston went ahead through a dubious offside goal 0v1.

Montrose felt aggrieved and let it affect their play allowing Livingston to dominate and eventually they scored a well taken second 0v2 at half time.

A few strong words were had in the Montrose dressing room at half time and the home side came out battling in the second half pushing for the next goal and duly served it up with a smart move as Duncan Martin went on an unstoppable run reaching the bye line looking up and cutting the ball back for Owen Christie to slide the ball past the keeper into the roof of the net 1v2.

Montrose now had the momentum and pressed for the equalizer but fatally pushed too hard allowing Livingston to break to make it 1v3.

This did not deter Montrose and with Duncan Martin terrorizing the Livi defence chance after chance was being created with only the final touch missing. Even Centre back and Captain Lewis Paton tried to take matters into his own hands stealing the ball in midfield driving forward and playing a 1-2 to receive the ball in the box only to see his shot beat the keeper and also the far post.

With time running out Duncan Martin went on another unstoppable run reaching the bye line looking up driving the ball across goal which deflected off a Livingston defender into his own goal 2v3.

It was all Montrose now but unfortunately they could not get the elusive equalizing goal with the game finishing 2v3 to Livingston.

A very good performance from the home side in the second half especially from flying left midfielder Duncan Martin, with the lesson to be learned that we must start the game properly and maintain our concentration.
