The first half witnessed a pleasing display of possession hockey from the Paisley team, who's average age was notably in the teens. Nevertheless they went into half time 0-0 after failing to convert 3 corners and capitalise on their dominance.
The second half begun in a similar fashion, with the defence transitioning the ball confidently to keep the Edinburgh team chasing shadows. In the 47th minute some lovely play down the right saw Jen Morgan stepping up to play a searching pass into the D. After the keeper cleared this pass Olivia Cain followed up to slot one passed the keeper and open the scoring.
A tough battle was fought for the remainder of the game, however the Kelburne Ladies 2's remained focused and claimed the three points.
Pro-Life Fitness Kelburne Ladies 2's 4
Kelburne Ladies 2's travelled to Millerston on Sunday to face Strathclyde University in the Championship league. On a extremely wet and windy day Paisley girls fielded a strong young squad of sixteen players.
From early in the game the Kelburne 2's maintained possessions and controlled the game in the middle of the park. They opened the scoring in the 20th minute following a corner which was slipped left. Catherine McLaughlin calmly found the bottom right corner.
A string of attacks followed this with both Maryka Cain and Marlieke Rademakers looking lively upfront. In the 25th minute the score doubled when Tegan MacPherson coolly converted a straight strike from a corner. At half time the score was 2-0 to the visitors.
The second half begun as the 1st ended, with the Kelburne girls maintaining lengthily periods of possession. The defence played very high up the pitch with Zoe Irvine and Briony Coyle creating lot of depth to their attack. Imogen Davies and Jen Morgan edged further up the pitch and supported attacks.
It was only a matter of time before another goal came and again it came from a corner. MacPherson showed her composure once more, to slot home another in the bottom left.
Nevertheless within eight minutes,following a momentary loss of concentration, the Strathclyde University ladies pulled one back with 15 minutes remaining. Eilidh Fleming in goals was left exposed after a forward pass carved through the defence to find their high forward.
Kelburne's answer was to create a corner straight away following a penetrating run from Anna McIntosh and Erin Cain. Olivia Cain was once more denied by the post on this occasion and another corner followed. On this occasion Ellise Berry's shot was stopped by a foot on the line and a flick was awarded. However the keeper pulled off a spectacular save to deny Berry on this occasion.
The Kelburne team were not done there. Lexi Sabotelli individually maintained possession in the D and found space to slot the ball pass the keeper on her reverse.
Thomson Cycles Kelburne 9
Thomson Cycles Kelburne this week hosted Inverleith in what was anticipated to be their toughest test of the season so far. With regulars Fraser Hutchison and Steven McKinnon unavailable due to work commitments, the team welcomed back Gordon Menzies to fulfil their roster.
After dominating the opening stages of the match it was Inverleith that drew first blood when Kelburne failed to clear their lines and Fergus Barrows? clearing kick rebounded off Captain Ewan Carmichael?s leg and into the empty goal.
Not long after the restart Kelburne were back on even terms when set piece expert Scott Sutherland flicked the ball high into the net leaving the keeper with no chance. Minutes later Sutherland got his second, again from a penalty corner, this time going low to the keeper?s right.
With half time approaching Kelburne were fortunate to get a third when Gordon Menzies? speculative pass deflected off the defender?s stick and straight to Andrew Bremner who gratefully tapped home.
Half Time 3 ? 1
A quick half time team talk, highlighting areas to improve and exploit, the team restarted determined to build on a sold first half. Ten minutes into the second half Kelburne?s fourth came when JG Shepherd?s cross pass was deflected by the Inverleith defender into his own net. Not long after Sutherland completed his hat-trick again from a penalty corner, this time the keeper getting a touch on it but injuring himself in the process. Unfortunately this resulted in the keeper leaving the pitch.
Kelburne sensed this was an opportunity to score more goals. Minutes later after good work down the baseline by Andrew Bremner his pass found Sutherland who slammed home Kelburne?s sixth. The seventh shortly followed again from Sutherland and his trusty drag flick, this time high into the goal leaving the defence with no chance.
Andrew Bremner got his second of the game with another tap in after good play from Andrew Duff. The final goal of the game came with JG Shepherd skipping past the defender and crossing to leave Bremner to slot home Kelburne?s ninth.
A good performance against difficult opposition leaves Kelburne top of the league, two points clear with a game in hand.
Thomson Cycles Kelburne travel across town next week to play local rivals Hillhead in a top verses bottom of the table clash.
Shortly after coming on as a sub Lucas Farndale went on a solo run from left midfield and played a nice ball through to Jak O'Connell who saw his first time effort slide just past the post.
They knew that if they continued to play in the same way they would achieve a positive outcome. Unfortunately the first five minutes were all Glasgow Uni and saves from David Ogilvie in goal kept the score the same. During this period the Uni team won several short corners but failed to convert any.
Pro-life Fitness Kelburne 3's 2
The highly anticipated Kelburne 3's V Kelburne 4's took place on Saturday at Glasgow Green Hockey Centre. Both squads were depleted due to the holiday week and injuries.
A breakout from defence saw some quick accurate passing out to young Finn Halliday in the circle and he calmly slotted the ball past keeper McEwan to give the 4's the lead. Minutes later the young striker repeated the feat to put Kelburne 4's up by 2 goals to nil.
To mark this incredible achievement the club are hosting a celebration dinner and are keen to recognise all who have made a contribution to the success over the last decade.

Dear Player / Parent,
Due to the number of senior fixtures being played this Sunday (19th Oct), we have insufficient coaches available to deliver the scheduled girls youth development squad session at Linwood and it will have to be cancelled. An additional session will be arranged at a later date to cover this.

They are not designed to deliberately inconvenience parents / designated guardians, but no doubt it may feel this way until they become a regular habit.
Kelburne take very seriously, their Duty of Care towards their young members and as such must ensure they provide as far as possible, suitable safety measures for all.
If anyone has any concerns regarding the above they may present them to the youth convener in person or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We thank you for your cooperation.
Thomson's Cycles Kelburne travelled through to Edinburgh for a late afternoon start against the team who last year had a decisive say in last year's title race. The late start had had a prohibitive effect on the availability of players, so Kelburne welcomed back the well travelled Ross McPherson and Mark Connor.
The match started evenly, before Kelburne were able to assert their authority and push the students into their half, and winning a number of short corners. The usually deadly Scott Sutherland was unable to convert, through a mixture of great goalkeeping and wayward finishing. Unfortunately for Kelburne, it was from one of their own short corners, that Edinburgh were able to break upfield and open the scoring against the run of play, despite the exposed Barrows making an initial save, the onrushing forward was able to smuggle the ball home. 1-0
Things could've been worse for the Paisley side, from another short corner Fraser Scott was able to divert a goal bound shot around the post, to keep the deficit at one.
Play resumed in much the same manner, the Paisley side pushing the students deep into their half, eventually forcing an equaliser from a set piece move. A free hit was won outside the 25, and Fraser Hutchison recognising the situation hit the ball straight into the 'D' and Andrew Bremner was able to deflect the ball past the goalkeeper. 1-1, just before half time.
During the interval patience and perseverance were promoted,alongside a reshuffle, as the evening start, and late notice period, claimed another player leaving Kelburne with the bare eleven for the second half.
The calm and considered approach began to pay off for Kelburne, the backline of Connor Bain, Scott, Adam McInnes, and Harry Godfrey retaining the ball with quick ball pace around the back, and dealing with any breakaways. The midfield trio of McPherson, Fraser Hutchison and Ewan Carmichael were taking advantage of the high ball pace provided for them, to pull Edinburgh Uni about, and createchances for the eager forward line of Bremner, Steven "SAM"McKinnon and Connor.
The ball was won high up on the left before being recycled out through McPherson to Scott, his ball into the circle was too far for Connor, but the ever-alert SAM was able to steal in away from his marker and dive full length to deflect the ball into the top corner, leaving the 'keeper rooted. 1-3
At this stage Kelburne were looking comfortable, able to invite the Edinburgh side out and look to hit on the break, with a number of unbelievable saves and poor decision making keeping the score down. Unfortunately, this profligacy was to come back and haunt Kelburne, as young defender McInnes was forced off with a pulled hamstring, leaving the side a man short for the final 15 minutes.
Edinburgh Uni 3s were encouraged by this, and pressed forward with the game becoming increasingly fractious as both sides incurred a number of cards resulting, in a further numerical imbalance. Uni were able to force home a second despite the best efforts of Barrows leading to a nail biting final 5 minutes. Another goal line clearance from Scott, and several superb saves from Barrows ensured the game finished with a victory for Kelburne 2s, leaving them top of the league with a game in hand.
Thomson's Cycles Kelburne 2s will attempt to continue their winning streak, with a full squad, on Saturday the 18th as they welcome Inverleith 2s to Glasgow Green at 15.00.
Stepps were the quicker team out of the starting blocks and had Pro-Life Fitness Kelburne on the back foot and may have opened the scoring on the first attack if it was not for the quick action of Ogilvie in goals who pulled off a fine save. The team began to find their feet and pass the ball around from the back into the channels trying to advance up the pitch towards the Stepps goal but were losing the ball in midfield. On one occasion the ball was quickly pushed to the Stepps forward who won a short corner which they failed to convert. Stepps scored after nine minutes and this was mainly due to having the defence under pressure which lead to a mistake and the ball was crashed home. Stepps were awarded another short corner which again they failed to convert.
Pro-Life Fitness Kelburne began to come more and more into this game and young Finn Halliday scored his first senior goal with a quick shot as he entered the D which caught the Stepps defence napping. The possession for the next few minutes were equally shared with neither team creating goal scoring chances. On the twenty minute mark Stepps were given a penalty flick which was disputed by the team but Ogilvie yet again made a brilliant save. As the clock counted down to halftime it did not look like either team would score and typically, as is the case, Stepps did manage to find a way through the defence and the ball finished behind the helpless Ogilvie.
Halftime Pro-Life Fitness Kelburne 5?s 1 ? 2 Stepps 3?s
The second half stared more brightly with Kelburne winning a short corner after three minutes but the shot was saved by the keeper and bounced to safety. Stepps then began to look the better team and created more scoring chances. In the eighth and twelfth minutes they scored two quick fire goals. The young Kelburne team were not finished yet and they dug deep and fought hard for the ball and each other and soon began to turn the tide. Finn Halliday collected a long ball out of defence from Macpherson and went on a drive to the base line as recently taught at training. When he went to pull the ball back to top D he noticed there was no support so calmly slotted the ball past the keeper from tight on the base line. This spurred the team on and they drove hard at the Stepps defence looking for another goal and on the thirty second minute they got that goal. From an infringement Farndale fired a quick ball into the D while the other team were trying to organise themselves and this ball ran through to Fraser Whiting at the back post who slotted the ball under the keeper for his first senior goal. The remaining minutes of the game were played out in the middle of the park with neither team creating a scoring opportunity.
Final score Pro-Life Fitness Kelburne 5?s 3 ? 4 Stepps 3?s
Considering this week?s team only had one adult it was a good performance from the youngsters. It is nice to see they are beginning to take what they are learning at training to the game on a Saturday. I must say Stepps also had a team made up of mainly youngsters but did have more adults which seemed to make a difference however it was nice to see youth have a chance.
Next week Pro-Life Fitness Kelburne 5?s will be away to Ayr 1
