Bromac Kelburne Mens 1s Lose Out to Clydesdale on Penalties

On 18.3.18 : On Sunday  Kelburne travelled to Titwood to play there quarter final match in cold conditions. Kelburne started the game brightly with intent and purpose in there play causing afew threatening attacks. As the game grew on Clydesdale began to come into the game partly down to the drop in intensity of Kelburnes play allowing afew of the promising young players in the Clydesdale side to gain confidence. Kelburne were guilty of lowering standards throughout the team and were guilty of poor attacking decisions and struggled to find any rhythm in the latter part of the half. HT 0-0 As the 2nd half started you could see intent from both teams to come out and play knowing a semi final place was up from grabs. Kelburne winning an early short corner that they failed to convert in the early moments. With Kelburne pushing forward Kelburne always looked disjointed at the back with Clydesdale's counter attacks with both teams trying to find the opening goal. Both teams were finding themselves in both D's but not really working either goalkeeper and as the continued it looked more likely that it would need to be decided on penalties. As the game approached the final stages Josh Cairns was yellow carded for a tackle on the half way line and with about 5 minutes remaining Johnny Christie also found himself on the sidelines for reacting to a follow through tackle.

FT 0-0 - Game goes to pens Clydesdale winning 7-6 Disappointing result for Kelburne losing on pens who will now turn their intentions to what will be a big weekend in the league title chase. Kelburne will be playing Grange on Saturday at Glasgow Green 1.30 and Sunday 3.00 at Glasgow Green against Menzieshill in what will prove to be 2 testing encounters. Congratulations on Clydesdale advancing to the Scottish Cup Semi Finals.
