Pro-Life Fitness Kelburne 4th XI - Season so Far

The team got off to a great start to the season, winning their first four games, to sit top of division one. Away wins at Irvine and Glasgow Accies followed by two home wins vs Uddingston and Rottenrow gave the team a 12 point start to the season. Currently the top goal scorer of the team is Jack O'Connell. We are hoping that his scoring exploits will continue into the second half of the season. 

Mid season saw four back to back defeats. A very frustrating period with several players unavailable for regular selection.

The big "derby" game saw the team play Pro Life Fitness Kelburne 3 at Glasgow Green  Always a very competitive match with the younger development players in the 3,s taking on the more mature players in the 4,s Kelburne 4,s were defending for most of the game but two attacks and goals from young striker Finn Halliday gave us a 2-1 lead with ten minutes to go. Major upset on cards but with no subs available, fatigue eventually set in and Kelburne 3,s scrambled a goal in the last minutes to equalise to make it 2-2.

End of season push and the team were back in the points with two back to back wins v Helensburgh and Motherwell. A great response from the players following the previous defeats.
Pro Life Fitness Kelburne 4's also play in the Scottish Hockey Reserve Cup. They have won both games in this competition so far against Watsonians 8-1 and a magnificent 3-1 win against current league leaders Glasgow Western 3's see the team in the draw for the quarter finals in 2015.

Many thanks to our sponsor for their support with the team looking great in their warm up tops at every game.
