Early goals cost Under-14s

Brechin City Youths Under-14’s travelled to Arbroath on Sunday for this league encounter versus top of the league ACSC.

Unfortunately the visitors never got started and within five minutes they were two goals behind due to poor defending.

It took a while for Brechin to get into the game with the remainder of the half being fought out in the middle of the park with very little action for both ‘keepers.

Brechin’s best chance fell to Rogerson from a Renilson pass but the shot went narrowly past the post.

Half-time: ACSC 2, 
Brechin Under-14s 0.

Brechin came out for the second half determined to get back into the match. With the wind in their faces it was always going to prove difficult but the effort of the boys was excellent and with a little bit of luck in front of goal things may well have been different.

The best chance of the second half was a result of good play between the Crosby brothers with Sam getting on the end of a Charlie cross with the ball being knocked just past.

A flurry of corners resulted in no end product and it was ACSC who scored the third after a first class finish from the striker who cut in from the left and placed a shot into the top corner past Clark in the Brechin goal.

A club spokesperson said: “There were a lot of good performance with the pick of the bunch going to the returning Stuart who had been missing through injury who dominated in the middle of a back four.

“With six league games left until the end of the season the aim for the Brechin team is to collect as many points as possible and to finish strongly.”

Team: Clark, L .Milne, K. Milne, Renilson, Akers, Stuart, S. Crosby, Lamb, Rogerson, Marwood, C. Crosby, A. Mitchell and Stewart.
