Farmington U-15s took their first competitive steps into 11-a-side football this morning at the Market Muir.
Starting on the front foot, the home side spurned a couple of early chances but did take the lead in the 5th minute when Rebekah Brown stroked home from 8 yards. A quick-fire brace from Jodi Allison put Forfar three ahead; a lead that was extended to four when Brown herself netted her 2nd goal of the game after reaping the rewards of some good interplay between Kerri Younger and Louise Falconer. Although not under any severe pressure, the Farmington defensive line of Thomson, Simpson and Keay was well marshalled by skipper Tami Guilcher.
Deeside looked to reassert themselves in the second period, however the home side continued their composed play, introducing all five substitutes in the process. Nikki Grant fired home number five with a cultured left foot strike, with the ever dangerous Younger notching number 6 with a powerfully driven shot. Wilson finished off the Forfar scoring knocking home at the back post after another good cross from Cattanach. Farmington Goalkeeper Rachelle Milton had a sharp one handed save to make after a shot in the box from a corner before Deeside scored a consolation goal in the last five minutes.
Farmington U-15s Coach Jeff Rioch commented "We were delighted with the performance with every player contributing to a convincing win - we really could not have asked for a better start to the campaign.”
“There were a lot of pleasing aspects in particular the passing, movement and communication which was good throughout and as the girls are discovering makes the game a whole lot easier. It was great to be able to fully use all sixteen available players and being able to rotate them with no real disruption to the flow augers well for the season ahead bearing in mind we had another three girls not stripped for action.”
“It was also great to see four girls make their competitive debuts for the club, Sydney, Nikki, Rhianne and Jodi have all slotted in extremely well with last year's squad. Amber Ogg, Hannah Robb and Danielle Grant will return to the squad next Saturady as we head to Westhill,Aberdeen to play Westdyke Girls where we will be looking for a similar performance as we saw today"
