Defeat for Brechin City Youths Under-13s

Brechin City Youths Under-13s travelled to face Fairmuir on Sunday in the J. Clenegahm league.

The game started off brightly for Brechin, with good possession and runs up the left hand side although there was not much in the way of chances.

Fairmuir got the first goal of the game on 22 minutes, capitalising on the Brechin left back getting caught in possession, allowing the winger to beat him and cross the ball. Confusion in the defence allowed for a tap in for Fairmuir.

Brechin tried to get back in to the game but struggled to make any passes to the strikers.

The homeside netted a second goal from a free kick on the left hand side. The strike from the kick was well taken, but possibly better positioning from the Brechin goalkeeper, Webley, may have prevented the goal.

Webley was in good form however, and made three fantastic saves and commanded his box well in the first half.

Half-time: Fairmuir 
Under-13 2, Brechin 
Under-13 0.

Despite a change at half time, which saw Scott on for Wilson, Fairmuir took a three goal lead early in the second half after the defence failed to clear their lines.

With 12 minutes remaining, Fairmuir added a fourth goal.

Brechin made a few changes, with Duncan replaced by McClelland and a shuffle of the team was made, which seemed to open up the game a bit more.

There was a good shot by Longmuir which drifted wide, this was followed by a way ward strike from Jamieson. A half chance fell to Rattray on his left foot but the ‘keeper saved easily.

Right at the death Jamieson embarked on a mazy run from his own half which resulted in him striking the post with his shot.

A club spokesperson said: “Overall an encouraging performance from the Brechin team against a very tough well drilled Fairmuir side.”
