3rd XI win in Style

Kelburne 3s 7
Clydeside 0

Kelburne came into this game looking to build on the win over Strathclyde University the previous week and keep the momentum going towards the all important plate quarter final against rivals Western.
They started in the perfect fashion with a goal in the first few minutes as Frenchman Victor Evrard picked up the ball and laid it to Andy Bremner on the baseline who managed to beat the keeper to the ball and move the ball to Jg Shepherd who swept the ball into the empty goal.
The game then started to become a bit more even as both teams looked for a goal and it was Kelburne who got it as a short corner was switched to Matt McGinley who played it onto Alan Ralph to touch past the keeper to finally claim his 1st goal of the season. The game began to become very scrappy with both sides not able to keep possession of the ball.
Then with five minutes of the first half left Connor Bain done well to break up a Clydeside attack and move the ball down the right wing to Bremner who beat his man and despite a horrendous tackle from the defender managed to play in Shepherd who unleashed an unstoppable reverse stick shot past the keeper and into the roof of the net to give Kelburne the cushion they were looking for. With seconds of the first half remaining Neil McIntyre made it four as he beat 3 men with ease then chipped the ball over the keeper.

Half time Kelburne 4 Clydeside 0

After a quick team talk at half time Kelburne came out looking to keep their discipline and increase their lead in the game.
Kelburne done just that as a move involving Fabien Goldie and Ryan Edgar resulted in another short corner which was well worked back to Bremner to slot past the keeper into the bottom corner for his 23rd goal of the season.
The pressure was now really beginning to put on the clydeside defence and it was soon six as Adam McInnes played a great pass to Bremner on the baseline to slip the ball to McGinley to smash into the bottom for his first goal since he returned to the club.
There was then a bit of controversy as the Clydeside goalkeeper was given a yellow card for too many verbal?s to the umpire after good work by Brodie Mckay to win a short corner.
From the corner McInnes managed to make it 7 as his flick at the goal was deflected in although there was much debate whether it was going on target before the defender touched it.
Goalkeeper Jonny Barlow done well to keep a clean sheet as Clydeside produced several attacks on the Kelburne goal. Kelburne had a few more chances before the end the best falling to Bain who twice managed to miss the ball when he had a clear shot on goal. Overall it was solid win for Kelburne and exactly what captain Ralph asked for.

Kelburne's next game is at home to Strathclyde University where they will be looking to carry on the winning run.
