Glynhill Kelburne win top of League Clash

Glynhill Kelburne 4 v 0 Menzieshill

Fresh from their win against local rivals Clydesdale last week, Glynhill Kelburne welcomed this years surprise package for title, Menzieshill including former Kelburne star Ross Stott, to Bellahouston.

The game started with Kelburne dominating possession due to Menzieshill sitting at half court. Kelburne continually pressed and attacked Menzieshill but found it hard to break down their solid defensive structure. However with about 15 minutes gone in the game, striker Alan Forsyth broke the deadlock after a long ball down the line by Adam Bain, found striker lee Morton who eliminated the Menzieshill defender and played Alan Forsyth through to calmly slot the ball under the goalkeeper and into the bottom corner. 

From the restart, Kelburne continued to press and they were soon rewarded by an excellent deflection into the roof of the net by Jonathan Christie after a wonderful ball into the "D" by Ian horsefield.


The second half started the same way as the first, with Kelburne continuing to dominate and Menzieshill sitting deep and looking for the counter attack. There were a few chances for both teams in the first ten minutes of the second half but both teams had failed to convert any of them. Soon after this though, Kelburne found a third thanks to Christopher Nelson, who reacted quickly to a loose pull at out at the short corner to fire the ball into the bottom corner of the goal. 

With the end of the game fast approaching, Scottish Player of the Year Alan Forsyth rounded of the scoring with a very audacious lob from an almost impossible angle to grab his second of the game. There was still time for Menzieshill to earn a penalty stroke after an infringement in the "D" and the resultant flick was excellently saved by Mark Fulton in the Kelburne goal, to keep a clean sheet.

The game finished  4-0 in favour of Kelburne and it sees them continue their unbeaten domestic start to the season
