On 8.9.18 - As smooth as Chocolate for Kelburne men’s 2s - sponsored by Noble Signs and Print Kelburne, the men's 2s hammered seven past the post to show newly promoted Inverleith what the Men’s Regional League Division 1 is made of. This was the result of a combination of short corners and fine finishing which was met with little resistance. Stuart Robin was starting his 33rd season so the first half started with a strong, experienced team coupled with some youngsters. Kelburne was soon 1-0 up with a deflection from Connor Bain. This was met with a counter attacked by Inverleith who had their first shot on target, fantastic save by Logan McClure. With lots of strong play at the away end, Kelburne got their first short corner, a lovely shot on goal by Euan Carmichael. Kelburne 2-0. A stick to the knee for Josh Cairns meant he sat out for the remainder of the first half. Soon after, the ball hit an Inverleith foot inside the D - this led to Gary Brolly skimming just wide of the post. Kelburne kept possession of the ball, working it from player to player, across the back which led to a great pass across goal from Adam Bain and a fantastic finish by JG Shepard. Kelburne 3-0 up. Half Time 3-0 Kelburne.
Kelburne had another shot on goal at the start of the second half, this was a sign of things to come and shortly afterwards Kelburne scored another goal, which was the result of a cracking pass from JG Shepard towards goal, with a first-time strike on target by Connor Bain. Kelburne 4-0. Another short corner led to Inverleith’s keeper having to save a superb strike from Josh Cairns. A well-executed shot by Craig Spiers added to the score and turned it into 5-0. High press by Inverleith led to a unlucky foot, giving them a short corner which they could not hit the target due to excellent defending. With not a lot of time left on the clock, Kelburne managed to squeeze in 2 more goals, one was scored by JG Shepard and the other from Connor Bain. Coach, Colin McClure and Captain, Mark Connor, were ecstatic with the team's performance - this sees them 2 points clear at the top of the league. Well done Kelburne! Next Game: Sat 15th September vs Edinburgh University 2s @ Glasgow Green.
