Girvan youngsters finish the season in style

The youngsters from Girvan Youths 1998 team ended their season in emphatic style on Sunday with a 7-0 win over Galston in the CAC cup final.

In glorious conditions, Kilwinning Sports Centre was the venue for the final on a 4G pitch.

And Girvan ended up thrashing their rivals from East Ayrshire despite being without some key players.

Girvan started without injured strikers Jamie Dorans and Charlie Holland as well as goalkeeper David Gillespie.

It wasn’t long before Brandon Rice opened the scoring, Mathew Taylor setting him up.

Ross Kelly was next on the score sheet after one of his rampaging runs linking up with Ryan O’Neil before firing home.

The very lively Connor Gracie added another to his very impressive tally after Jamie McAvoys inch perfect through ball.

Brandon Rice added another two to claim a third hat trick and 13 goals in his last five games.

Midfield Maestro Calum Hamilton got his 24th of the season after Girvan’s terrier Mark Allison robbed their midfield and played Hamilton in to smash the ball into the net.

With Galstons heads well down Gracie added to their misery this time Lee Nisbett the provider and Gracie making no mistake.

It was a very hard day for Galston for any attack they did mount they were up against the solid defence of Clarke Boon, Kyle McCulloch, Brodie O’Neil & Ryan O’Neil.

Man of the match was Connor Gracie after a tireless performance.

The Girvan boys can now enjoy a well earned rest after a fantasic season with only four defeats all season in the league scoring 227 goals, agonisingly seconds away from a quarter final in the Scottish cup, beating the cream of the Glasgow teams. A fantastic achievement from a team from Girvan and we’re looking forward to the season ahead.
