Brechin City youth teams suffer twin defeats

Having been knocked out of the cup the previous week, Brechin City Youths U13’s travelled to Pitfour for a league clash with their Perthshire opponents on October 27.

The points went to the home side despite an evenly fought contest with not much between both teams.

Despite creating numerous chances in the first half, it was a Sawyer penalty that gave Brechin their goal after Lamb had been brought down in the box for a 1-1 half time score.

Rogerson did manage to get a further goal for Brechin after chipping the keeper from the edge of the box, but despite the efforts of all the boys, Pitfour ran out 4-2 winners.

A lot of positives were taken from the game, and if the chances had been taken, the points would have gone home to Brechin.



Brechin City Youths U13’s travelled to Monifieth on Sunday, November 3, for a league clash with one of the top of the table teams.

A difficult game was forecast, and with a gale facing both teams, it was always going to be a difficult outing for the away team.

The first 15 minutes very little chances for either team, with Broughty having the bulk of the play.

Eventually, the home team took control of the game, and it wasn’t long before they opened their account, with the forward scoring at the back post after a cross from the wing.

Unfortunately, the visitors’ heads went down and another four goals followed, providing a 5-0 half time score.

The visitors then produced a far better performance in the second half, competing for every ball.

And despite losing a further three goals, there was room for a Steele shot from the edge of the box that beat the keeper for a consolation goal.

Team: Marwood, C. Crosbie, Clark, Lamb, Renilson. Stewart, Rogerson, Sawyer, S. Crosbie, Grieve, Steele: Subs - A. Mitchell, Donald, M. Mitchell, Milne (all used)

The boys are at home to Monifieth this week, with a 12.30 p.m. kick off at Brechin High School.
