Kelburne Mens' 1s Lose Out vs Western Wildcats

Looking back to Saturday 12.10.19, Kelburne went into this game after securing their first point of the season the previous week with a 3-3 draw verses Hillhead. The game started off evenly but Western opened the scoring five minutes into the game. A strong run by a Western player causing some confusion in the Kelburne defenceand then Western then slotting the ball past Logan McClure in the Kelburne goal. Kelburne settled after going behind and came strongly back into the game. Tidy play from Gary Maitles resulted in Kelburne winning their first penalty corner of the game. Finn Halliday then stepped up and sent the Western goalkeeper the wrong way, sliding his drag flick into the right hand side of the net. The first quarter finished 1-1. The second quarter started evenly with good play down the Kelburne right hand side with Connor Bain. Western perhaps created more clear cut chances and would have pulled ahead in the game if it wasn't for some clever saves from Logan McClure. Kelburne then took the lead after a slick move down the right hand side. Maitles passing the ball out of defence to Spanard Pol Abericio, he then fed the ball to the baseline to Halliday who passed the ball across the Western circle. The ball fell nicely to Abericio who had continued his run and he was able to slot the ball under the Western keeper. The quarter finished with a number of corners to Western but McClure and the corner defence were able to deal with these efforts. Halftime score 2-1 to Kelburne. Western came out in the second half fighting and piled on the pressure. They created a number of clear chances. Kelburne we able to weather the storm but struggling to keep any meaningful possession in the Western half. Despite this they had a golden chance to make it 3-1 but Halliday was unable to get the ball past the imposing Western's keeper. Western's pressure paid off when they were able to squeeze in a rebound from a short corner. 3rd Quarter finished 2-2.

Kelburne so far had given a good account of themselves but the forth quarter would see them unravel. The score at the end of the game would be 7-2. This was a result of a number of corner variations by Western and poor decisions from a tired Kelburne. The team would come away frustrated at having such a poor forth quarter and squandering a number of chances. The team will be keen to earn some redemption this double header weekend. Saturday sees a return to Glasgow Green to play Watsonsions at 1.30pm and Sunday the team travels to Tayside to play Dundee Wanderers at 12pm, Dalnacraig.

Kelburne Ladies' 1s Beat Highland HC 2-0

13.10.19 ..On Sunday Kelburne Ladies 1st XI hosted Highland HC in the Scottish cup. Boasting the same young squad from Saturday’s league, the team gelled quickly and looked lively from the onset. Kelburne retained possession well in the opening spell with midfielders Morven McEwan and Jessica McKenzie finding lots of space on the wings. Forwards Megan Ralph and Dalia Stewart similarly created lots of opportunities with their speed and direct running. Just before half time, Kelburne converted a corner, D’Arcey Campbell’s strike rebounded from the keeper and Frances Strain’s forceful strike found the bottom left corner. Controversially the goal was disallowed as umpires felt the initial ball had not left the circle. The score then stood 0-0 at half time. The second half saw much of the same dominant possession play from Kelburne. However their high press was countered on occasion. Jenna Brolly and Campbell read the play well to intercept most of these breaks. While keeper Emily Irvine was first to anything that made its way into the circle.

Kelburne’s tenacity paid off in the 60th minute. When great play down the left side of the pitch finished with Ralph’s lay off in the circle to player/coach Rachael Ewing-Day who calmly spun away from her defender and slotted the ball past the keeper. The game was mainly played in the Highland half for the remainder of the game with Freya Halliday, Rebecca Feeney and Aimee McGrane all supporting the attack from defence when necessary. A bursting run into the circle from Ambar Hendry claimed a corner in the 71st minute. Ewing-Day made sure of the stop on this occasion to set up a Campbell rocket onto the foot of a defender before lifting into the net. The game finished 2-0 to the Paisley team with Megan Ralph being awarded the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award for a dynamic and determined performance!

Kelburne Ladies' 1s vs Granite City..

On Saturday 12.10.19, the Ladies first XI hosted Granite City in National league two. The Kelburne squad handed their first XI debuts to four regular second XI players. Due to a number of players being unavailable Abbie Irvine, Freya Halliday, Aimee McGrane and Charley Austin all stepping up for their first experience of the National league. The game begun in glorious sunshine as dominant possession play saw the young side take the game to the travelling visitors. D’Arcy Campbell was instrumental in defence protected keeper Emily Irvine for the duration of the first half, ensuring that few balls made their way into the home teams circle. While in attack Megan Ralph and Dalia Stewart proved very difficult to defend, creating some excellent attacking plays. Some tenacious play saw Kelburne claim a series of corners Rachael Ewing-Day finding a foot in the circle and Jessica McKenzie calmly doing the same when faced with a rebounded shot. Unfortunately both shots failed to find the net and the score at half-time, a little disappointingly was 0-0. The second half saw Kelburne dominate possessions for long spells, both by transitioning around the back and finding long balls down the line. A highlight from this period came from a Austin pass down the line to Dalia Stewart, which was laid off into the path of Frances Strain who slipped past her defender to fire a ball across the circle, where Ralph’s first time shot narrowly missed the left hand post. Kelburne presses high in search of the opened. However a stack pass from a sixteen was intercepted and against the run of play Granite city found the opener. Despite another positive period by Kelburne the Aberdeen team found the net again within 10 minutes. The sun glare assisting a very average top Dee shot. Despite the game finishing 0-2 in favour of the visitors, Kelburne take lots of positives from the performance. The progress the young side have made and the individual performances, especially from the debutants, demonstrate that the future is bright. Most valuable player (MVP) was D’Arcy Campbell with special mention to Abbie Irvine for an exceptional debut.

Looking back.. Kelburne Men's 6s Near Miss vs Dumfries 2s

On 7.9.19 - The all new Kelburne 6th team started life with a game against Dunfries 2’s on a warm sunny September afternoon. The new squad included 10 debutants, 8 youngsters and 2 slightly less young! The Dumfries team included some experienced and strong players and they dominated the early exchanges. Kelburne survived the early play and started to play nice hockey with Ian McIntyre and Alex Austin exchanging passes on the left and Adam running nicely on the right. Dumfries eventually made their experience tell by sneaking in at the back post to score. Reece Nicholl had shown great confidence with some nice saves but were unluckily undone by a deflected shot for Dumfries’ second. 2-0 at half time. The Kelburne debutants were gaining confidence and some nice play left to Alan Bryce (not a debutant!) in space in the D to calmly slot it home to halve the deficit. Kelburne were chasing the game and pushing forward with Fraser Berry, Kyle Craig, Ben Moody and Ross Gillies moving nicely. Dumfries were always dangerous and quick on the break and scored a nice third. However, Kelburne’s heads remained high and they continued to drive forward. Long balls to Alan and the other forwards were working well, but with no final outcome. Some nice play led to several Kelburne corners, which led to good saves and goal line clearances. Andrew Jack who had excelled with the responsibilities of centre midfield scored with a magnificent reverse stick strike into the top left corner. All to play for in the final 10 minutes. The team’s confidence was increasing, and the youngsters were willing to run into space and receive the ball – Tom Hunt and Robert Philips were exchanging well down the right. However, despite the forward drive from Willie and debutant Paul Brown, Dumfries hung on for the win. An excellent first outing for the Kelburne 6th team, well done – onwards and upwards.

On the Way to Victory!

Kelburne Men's 4s vs Hillhead 4s

On Saturday 5.10.19 - Kelburne didn’t start the game well and found themselves down pretty early on. This set the tone for the first half as Hillhead put Kelburne under a lot of pressure and scored most of their goals during the first half. Kelburne was much better in the second half. They frustrated Hillhead by defending well and putting in much more effort as a team. Going forward Kelburne looked pretty good and created a lot of decent chances getting themselves a few short corners which was where they got their goals from. The first goal was scored by Shaun Jardine-Malone who put the ball in at the back post after a nice strike from the right side of the D. The second was scored by Kevin Fairbairn. His original shot was saved but the ball rebounded nicely back to him and he put it away with a nice strike. Final Score 2-7 to Hillhead.

The next game for the 4s is in the cup where they will play Grove Menzieshill 3s at home.

Kelburne Ladies' 2s Miss Out vs GHK

On Saturday 5.10.19 - A great defensive effort by kelburne ladies’ 2’s. A very even first half with chances for both sides. Early on GHK was awarded a penalty flick with keeper Lynne making an outstanding save. Unfortunately, just before half time, GHK scored a goal from open play after a lapse of concentration. Kelburne had many chances with GHK’s keeper being very difficult to beat. Early in the second half GHK scored again from a backpost deflection from a penalty corner where we were slow to react. Quickly after Kelburne scored from a counter attack, Jen Morgan passed the ball to Maddy Bower at the penalty spot who turned and scored. Immediately from the restart GHK scored from open play after kelburne didn’t react quick enough still enjoying their goal. After a brilliant game by both teams and many chances for both sides GHK won 3-1. Well done ladies!

Kelburne Men's 5s Lose to Giffnock 1s

On Saturday 5th October - Kelburne with only 12 players started off the game in a high pace. Both teams held the ball fairly equally all game. Giffnock with an extremely fast start scored their first goal roughly 5 minuites into the game due to kelburne not being able to react fast enough. Multiple other goals were scored by Giffnock due to mistakes in the kelburne D or fast turnovers. Kelburne had managed to comfortably get the ball into the opposition half and had many goal scoring opportunities. Near the end of the first half kelburne won 3 short corners. All corners were played well with Tommy pushing the ball to one of two castles. Some techniques used were slip left, straight hit and second castle. Unfortunately none of these were goals. As the second half began kelburnes ball pace and spirit increased. Again there were multiple opportunities for kelburne to score. All players agreed that everyone played very well on the second half . They had adapted to the technique of play Giffnock used and managing to hold the ball at the back for longer. Again giffnocks main goal scoring opportunities were from fast turnovers. Unfortunately they had scored their last few goals in the second half ending in kelburne being defeated 0-7. Everyone played very well and there were no disagreements between player and umpires other than 1 green card given to Aaron O'Hare. All round both teams played a very professional and fast paced game of hockey.

Kelburne Ladies’ 2s - September 2019

Kelburne Men's 5s Beat Clydesdale 4s 2-0

On 21.09.19 - It was a beautiful afternoon at sunny Titwood, and two teams, with an abundance of youth on show were ready to do battle. It was a much changed Clydesdale team that lined up to face the 5’s after the previous weeks drubbing by our 4’s and it was clear it was going to be a much more competitive game. The start of the game saw Kelburne with all the early pressure and some lovely link up play between Dick and Tommy set Calum Brown free on the right hand side, where he made space for himself to made a superb cross into the D that Calum Stewart met perfectly but his shot went into the side netting. Aaron, Dick and Tommy were causing Clydesdale all sorts of problems with driving runs into the circle and were unlucky not to get us off the mark. As Clydesdale huffed and puffed a bit at the other end Jack made a solid tackle, ushering the ball from danger and releasing an immediate attack that eventually saw Nic pick up the ball just outside the D which he drove onto his left unleashing a reverse stick shot back across the goal and into the far corner, 1-0 Kelburne!!! And great reward for an outstanding early performance. Our young defence of Jack, Andrew, Rory and Dylan were marshalled by the experience of Stuart Robbin and alongside Fionn they were as solid as a rock. In fact it was 25 minutes before Clydesdale managed a shot from wide on the left, bringing out a great stop from Fionn. Jared was linking our defence and forwards on the right with some solid midfield defending and quick passing to have us on attack quickly and this was putting Clydesdale under lots of pressure. As the ball broke to Dick he disguised a straight ball through to Aaron and he played Tommy in to slot the ball home through the goalies legs and 2-0 to Kelburne!! Calum Jamieson made superb tackle as Clydesdale tried to create an attack and then Andrew played a lovely long ball into the 25 for Aaron but it was cleared to safety. Stuart was solid at the back and played ball to Tommy who moved it on sharply to Charlie who couldn’t quite collect. Clydesdale were coming into the game a bit more and Fionn was needed for a second time with an excellent clearance, with Rory making a fantastic tackle to follow this, only to be unluckily punished for a hand on the attackers back. This seemed to spur him on though as the next run of play saw him on the line clearing a Clydesdale shot. HALF TIME 2-0 Kelburne

The 2nd half started as the first finished, with Kelburne having lots of possession. There was lots of passing and attack after attack. Charlie’s pace and tenacity was causing some of the Clydesdale player’s real problems and they didn’t seem to know how to manage him. Andrew McGrane worked really hard in creating space and opportunities for himself and did some stellar work channelling a defender and winning the ball back for Kelburne to apply pressure on Clydesdale again. Dylan and Nic linked well with quick passes and Nic created some space to release Calum Stewart in the D to create a 1 on 1 with the goalie, but unfortunately he couldn’t slot it away. As the 2nd half went on Clydesdale came into the game a bit more but our defence continued to play well and it didn’t look as though we were going to be breached. They came close but Andrew made a fantastic stop on the line that Calum Brown cleared and immediately saw us counter attack at pace. Dick and Tommy linked up with Charlie in some great space but Clydesdale cleared their lines well. Quick creative play once again saw Aaron drive into the circle winning a short corner that Calum Brown struck well bringing out an excellent save by their goalie. The sunshine went away for a wee while or so the support thought as there was a short period that was a bit dull overhead, but Paul had just popped away from the pitch for 5 mins and as soon as he and his pink trainers returned the sunshine was once again there to brighten up the huge and vocal support. This was a great team performance in all areas of the pitch and on the side lines. Well done Kelburne 5’s, 2-0 victory!!!!

Kelburne Ladies' 3s Beat GHK 3s - 3-0

On Saturday 21.9.19 - the Ladies 3s played against GHK with a home fixture at Glasgow Green. The game started off looking like it would be a tough game for the Ladies with game play being very balanced between the teams. The team had several chances in the D but were unable to capitalise on them. In the last ten minutes of the first half a beautiful cross from Charley Austin found Kerri McGinnty on the far post who hit the ball into the goal, scoring the first goal of the game and putting Kelburne ahead 1-0 at half time. The second half started with a GHK push back and they were keen to attack hard. Kelburne were keen to keep their lead and won a short corner. An injection from Kerri McGinnty to Emma Ryan at top D with in a shot on target which was blocked by a foot on the line, resulting in a penalty flick for Kelburne. Emma Ryan stepped up to take it with the team watching in anticipation. A beautiful low ball played to the right hand side of the keeper hit the backboard with a satisfying sound and putting Kelburne further ahead with a 2-0 lead. Entering the final quarter of the game, Kelburne were pushing hard for a third goal. Balls were played hard down the lines seeking high placed forwards looking to connect and consolidate Kelburne’s lead. A shot on target resulted in a rebound ball reaching Molly Mitchell just right of the penalty spot. With the goalkeeper in front of her and defenders ready to tackle, Molly lifted the ball high over the keepers head (while everyone collectively held their breath) and into the back of the net giving Kelburne the 3- 0 lead they were seeking. Overall, a wonderful game of hockey which resulted in a well deserved win for Kelburne. Well done to Kerri McGinnty (MVP team and opposition) and Charley Austin (workhorse).

Kelburne Men's 2s Lose Out to Clydesdale 2s 2-7

On 21.9.19 - New look Kelburne 2XI playing together for the first time took on a well drilled Clydesdale 2XI and this showed early on with Kelburne being under a lot of pressure. This led to the Kelburne side being 4 goals down at half time. The second half was much better from Kelburne with better hockey and passing moves being put together. Callum McCaffer managed to steal the ball high up the park with good pressing and finished calmly by the Clydesdale keeper. Criag Speirs then finished off some good play with a composed tap in. The final score was 2-7 to Clydesdale - next week sees the men's 2XI head to Peffermill to take on Edinburgh Uni 2XI.

The Kelburne Men's 6s Draw vs Clydesdale 5s 1-1

On Saturday 21.9.19 - A youthful looking Kelburne 6’s took to the field against Clydesdale firmly in their own half. In 16mins Kelburne had the first clear chance with Adam Jack driving down the right wing and cutting the ball back in to the dee, the shot drifted past the Clydesdale keepers right hand post. Kelburne continued to press and this time Ross Young dispossessed Clydesdale’s centre back, only for the keeper to clear for the home team. With the 1st half drawing to a close Kelburne kept the pressure up and a goal line clearance this time kept the scores level. Clydesdale's first venture in to the Kelburne dee was just before half time resulting in a short corner. Kelburne club veteran Willie Hunt cleared the threat on the Kelburne goal which spurred Kelburne straight up the field in what was to be the final bit of action in the 1st half, Fraser Berry latched on to a through ball and squared this in the dee to the on coming Hamish Walker who tuck this opportunity away for a well deserved 1-0 lead at the end of the 1st half. The 2nd half started just as the first had ended, with Kelburne on the front foot, Fraser Berry once again pushing down the right wing and driving the ball across the dee to Declan Mcgee who rounded the Clydesdale keeper only for the shot to hit the side net. Kelburne just would not let Clydesdale out there own half and with another short corner, Ross Young shot just past the Clydesdale goal. On 65mins Willie Hunt picked the ball up in the Kelburne D, driving over the half way line and unleashing the forwards for another assault on the Clydesdale goal. Just as the game looked to be drawing to a close Clydesdale made a rare appearance in the Kelburne D, forcing a short corner, the first attempt at goal was blocked, but the 2nd successive short corner was driven in to the goal at the left hand post, just beyond the reach of Kelburne keeper Reece Nicholl for an equaliser, much against the run of play it has to be said. Final score 1-1.

Kelburne’s next match is away against Giffnock on 5th October. On this form the youngsters in the squad can take great heart form consecutive positive performances.

Kelburne Ladies’ 1s Miss Out vs ESM 4-1

On 21.9.19, the Kelburne Ladies’ 1st team begun their league 2 campaign away to ESM. In very hot conditions the young squad begun the match without 6 members of last year’s squad and 5 moving up from the 2nd team. Youngster Morven McEwan made her competitive debut and had to start the match after car trouble saw Player/coach Rachael Ewing-Day and captain Frances Strain miss the start of the match.
Unfortunately the strong ESM side came out fighting and within 10 minutes had scored 3 to put themselves comfortably in the driving seat.
Kelburne found their rhythm in the later stages of the first half. The score at the end of the 1st half was 3-0.
The 2nd half saw a number of great passages of play for Kelburne Ladies. Cara Bruce and Connie Reid linking well in the left hand side to create lots of attacking plays. While Rebecca Feeney and Jen Morgan worked hard defensively to deny the rampant ESM time and space.
The fast paced game was end to end and subs rolled readily as the temperature took its toll. Notably Dalia Stewart picked up the ball in the middle of the pitch and her speed and tenacity proved too difficult for ESM to match. Her string and powerful surge into the circle was rewarded with a calm shot that found its was past the ESM keeper, taking the score to 3-1.
At the other end Keeper Emily Irvine was dominant between the sticks and a string of ESM corners and attacks found her busy pads. Controversially ESM did score however during this period after a obvious kicked ball from their striker was then placed past a confused Irvine. The goal however stood as the sun drenched umpire claimed not to have seen any infringement.
The game finished too early for the young 1st XI who just seemed to have got into their stride as the final whistle blew. Most Valuable players were voted as Jenna Brolly and Emily Irvine whose defensive efforts demonstrated maturity beyond their young years.
It was a disappointing result to begin the league campaign - Nevertheless spells of dominance, exceptional effort and determination and some fabulous individual performances make the young Kelburne side a team to look out for this season.
