Seven heaven for Under-13s

Lochside Under-13s 0

Brechin Under-13s 7

Buoyed by their recent result against Logie Harp, Brechin City Youths Under-13s travelled to play Lochside in a midweek fixture.

Brechin started with the same line up and from kick off were quickly into their stride playing a slick passing game which Lochside were struggling to cope with.

It was no surprise when James Williamson burst into the box, beat three defenders and placed the ball past the keeper to put Brechin one up.

This was closely followed by his second of the game from the penalty spot after he had been upended in the box following another surge into the area.

A few minutes later and it was 3-0 as captain Fraser Jamieson unleashed a powerful strike from distance which was deflected into the top corner of the net.

Striker Finlay Keith made it four for the visitors when he ran onto a great through ball before firing a powerful effort past the ‘keeper from the edge of the box.

James Williamson secured his hat-trick with another fine finish to make it five goals in a 25 minute period.

Half-time: Lochside Under-13’s 0, Brechin Under-13’s 5.

The second half saw Brechin take the opportunity to make a number of substitutions with the oncoming players helping the team to control the rest of the match and 10 minutes into the half William Rattray rounded off a fine move to score his second in two games.

In defence, Fraser Jamieson and Aarron Duncan snuffed out any attacks from Lochside who, to their credit, continued to work hard and get forward when possible.

As the game neared the final whistle substitute Oliver Yeatts got on the end of a cross to knock home Brechin’s seventh and final goal of the game.

Team: Webley, Hynd, Duncan, Jamieson, Wilson, Lightly, Longmuir, Williamson, Scott, Keith, Rattray, Cameron, Angus, McLelland, Robertson and Yeatts.

A spokesperson for the club said: “Following the hardworking performance against Logie Harp this was a different sort of game and the boys took the opportunity to display the full range of their passing ability. This was an extremely pleasing performance 
which has given the team confidence going into their next match.”
