On Sunday 16.9.18 the men's 2s played out a scrappy game in Aberdeen against Ellon mens 1s to begin their defence of the district cup. The game started slowly with Kelburne failing to threaten inside the opposition D. The deadlock was eventually broken with a neat finish from J.G Shepherd. Gary Brolly and Phil Nijsen chipped in with 2 impressive drag flicks to take the score to 3-0 heading into half time. Kelburne began the second half with the intentions of killing the game off early on. Callum McCaffer prodded the ball into the back of the net after a scramble in front of the Ellon goal. J-G scored his second of the game with a powerful reverse stick strike beyond the keeper. Ciaran Wilcox found himself at right place at the right time to tap in Kelburne's 6th all but ensuring the win. Ellon managed a late consolation from their only short corner of the game, a great strike past Logan McClure in goals. The 6-1 victory sees the Noble Signs Kelburne men's 2s into the next round of the cup as they hope to retain their trophy.
