Fort dump Deveron­vale to earn first three points of the sea­son

The Oban Times - - Sport -

FORT WIL­LIAM se­cured their first three points of the sea­son with a well de­served win over Deveron­vale at Clag­gan Park last Satur­day.

The young team, who have had a tough start to the sea­son, beat Deveron­vale 2-1 at home on Satur­day.

The boys started off on the front foot and took the game to the visi­tors right from the start.

The im­pres­sive Lewis Mor­ri­son, steered the ball in from the right be­fore it was picked up by Danny Mack­in­tosh, whose header left the goalie with no chance.

With the first half dom­i­nated by Fort Wil­liam, the Vale took the op­por­tu­nity to equalise in the 54th minute.

The lo­cal side man­aged to keep their cool and re­gained con­trol of the game through­out the sec­ond half and with just seven min­utes left on the clock Scott Chisholm fired home from the edge of the box to make the fi­nal score 2-1.

Man­ager Ally Ewen was pleased with the re­sult, as it was his first win as team man­ager. He said: ‘This is the sec­ond time we’ve beaten Deveron­vale. Last year we on 4-3. I think that we are on par as teams, so it was pleas­ing to get that first win of the sea­son against them. We lost a lot of play­ers from last year, so the Fort Wil­liam team is quite a new one.

‘The boys are train­ing re­ally hard for the games - twice a week - and I think that they are start­ing to gel now.’

Fort Wil­liam travel away to play Lossiemouth this week­end and then will be back at home the fol­low­ing Wed­nes­day to face Buckie This­tle.
