Glenafton U13s 4 Lochar Thistle U15s 4
This was the boys first game after a grueling pre-season including 2 trips to Prestwick beach. The team has moved Greig Leitch & Connor to the 13s as they were playing a year above last season The 14s have brought in ex Ayr Utd centre half Chris Thompson from Mauchline.
The age differential was visible before the start of play and it showed early on with 2 quick fire goals due to some nervous decisions at the back.But the younger boys rallied and Mitch Black scored a wonder strike from 30 yards. Another a bad mistake gave Lochar Thistle their 2 goal advantage back, but 5 mins later Jo Jo Nohar got one back for the Glens. The Glens made a couple of changes bringing on Dylan Cochrane and Aiden Lang, and it turned the game round A great through ball from Jo Jo Nohar put Aiden Lang through who calmly slotted the ball home to make 3-3 Lochar got another but a penalty from Mitch Black in the final minute to give the boys a well deserved draw,
Manager John Stewart remarked “ Some of the boys needed the game today and it is the first they have had since from last season, 3 errors cost us today but they will learn from it, and I thought the new central pairing of Chris Thompson & Adam Crolley were excellent”.
