Start of youth football season

Brechin City Youths U14’s league campaign got off to a slow start with a loss away to Montrose on Sunday.

Montrose 8, Brechin 2.

A poor first half performance in Brechin’s opening league game of the season saw Montrose take a 5-0 lead into the half time break.

The second half showed an improved performance against the strong Montrose team, who extended their lead by a further two goals before Brechin replied with a strong twenty yard shot from Tom Barreiro dipping in just under the bar.

Brechin came close on three further occasions with shots from Billy Irvine, Conor Doan and Reece Campbell.

Montrose pulled another goal back to take the score to 8-1 before an excellent header at the back post from Reece Campbell made the final score 8-2 to Montrose.

Many thanks to all those parents who travelled to Montrose to support the boys.
