Dryburgh on goal trail once again
THERE was another great weekend of football for Dryburgh Girls.
It started with Dryburgh U/12s winning 9-0 away to Montrose on Saturday at Kenny Park.
Dryburgh coach Paul Johnstone commented: “The girls were brilliant. Their passing was crisp and sharp and they took their goals well
“Their combination play was good and it was very pleasing to see Ellie and Jemma get their first goals for the team. All round I thought it was a great team showing.”
Abbie Fender netted a hat-trick and Jess Anderson, Ellis Cairncross, Ellie Craig, Mariama Bayo and Jemma Johnstone also scored.
Dryburgh U/13s won 10-1 at Arbroath CSC.
Head coach Ryan Hurrell said: “It was a really good team performance. The girls moved the ball well.
“Keeper Abbie Reid didn’t see too much of the ball but when called into action she did well.
“The goal of the game came from Mollie Howett who scored an absolute cracker from 30 yards.”
Teighan Milne netted a hat-trick and Olivia Hurrell, Mollie Howett, Heather Carr, Skye Middleton, Lily Hughes and Sophie McFadyen also netted.
Dryburgh U/15s weren’t so fortunate as they were edged out 3-2 by Letham at Lochee Park.
The sides were evenly matched for much of the game.
The Dryburgh girls created numerous chances but found the Letham keeper in fine form.
The impressive Deon Hamilton scored both ’Burgh goals.
Dryburgh U/17s got back to winning ways with an accomplished performance away to Montrose, winning 9-0.
The girls did well, playing good passing football in very windy conditions. And they created numerous chances throughout the game.
The fixture saw Dryburgh U/15s keeper Sarah McIntosh make her U/17s debut and she did very well.
She had one especially cracking save from a free- kick.
Credit to Montrose, who never gave up. They tried very hard until the final whistle.
Dryburgh goalscorers were Nyla Murphy with four, while Amy Healey, Gabrielle Watt, Amy Reilly, Neve Guthrie and Katie Shaw scored.
Dryburgh Girls are still recruiting new players for their U/9s & U/11s. Anyone interested should contact dryburgh email@example.com for more info.
