On Saturday 1.9.18 - The Kelburne Ladies 2s stepped on to the pitch at Glasgow Green for their first game of the new season against Ayr. With a few new faces in the team and many experienced players mixed in Kelburne dominated the play. Going out fast from the first whistle the girls pushed their opponents hard, passing the ball swiftly round the pitch. Opportunities opened up with Kelburne getting into the 'D' and getting the ball on target only to be denied by the keeper. The first half ended 0-0. After a pep talk at half time and a wee sweet snack courtesy of Pheobe (GK coach) the girls were ready to go out and push even harder. The pre-season fitness training started to pay off as Ayr started to tire more opportunities opened up and mistakes forced. Giving Kelburne a well earned short corner, with a swift push out and clean strike at goal the keeper got a kicker to the ball but Phillippa pounced on the rebound to put the ball in the back of the goal. Kelburne continued to dominate working well as a team, moving the ball well around the pitch. With 10 minutes to go another short corner was awarded against Ayr, after a brief discussion the girls step up to the edge of the 'D'. Pushed out to top 'D' the ball was slipped to the right where the ball was then pushed back to the penalty spot for Ellie Houston to slot the ball home.
Final score Kelburne 2 Ayr 0 - The Kelburne ladies 2s has two games next weekend Saturday 16.30 at Glasgow Green versus Perthshire and Sunday Vs Glasgow University at Carscube
