On Saturday 8.9.18 - The Men's 4s started their season with an early push back against Uddingston 4s at Uddingston. The team were looking to produce the same performance that saw them win 1-0 at the same stage last season. The team started strong with some solid play from the back giving a platform for the midfielders and forwards to push on. There was several early chances for Colin Fairbairn and a narrow miss from the first short corner of the game from newbie John Lennox. Kelburne continued to press forward with the Uddingston keeper making several good saves before Colin Fairbairn produced a save from the keeper but Callum Stewart was in a fantastic position to stroke in his first 4s goal to give Kelburne an early lead. Uddingston started to apply some pressure with Lewis Berry producing a fantastic double save to keep Kelburne ahead in the game. This meant Kelburne took a lead in to half time. The second half began in the same way as the first with Kelburne pressing to try and get a second and give some breathing space. Uddingston held strong with the keeper continuing to make some fantastic saves. Kelburne continued to apply the pressure with some great play across the midfield but James Currie could not capitalise from several short corners. Kelburne were able to see out the game to record their first win and get off the mark. Man of the Match was Chris Nelson with an assured performance in midfield.
Next week the 4s play the Men's 5s in the big derby at Glasgow Green (12noon pb), one not to be missed!
