Last 9v9 game for the boys
By MARK SPURLING
TT2007, Dean Thistle FC
The last year has seen TT2007 transform into a very good team. As we leave the 9v9 game and head into the 11v11 game we visited Dean Thistle FC today and finished our development with a hard fought draw. Sammy Kyle
scoring the only goal for TT2007 before Dean pulled it back with 8 minutes left. Zack Batchelor
proving to be a brave goalie with some fine close range saves. Going forward to the 11's game there is still some room for improvement from all the boys. The biggest would have to be their fitness levels as most were waiting for the ball to get to them rather than run in front of the opposition and pick the ball up in midfield, this allowed Dean to make many runs at our defenders but once again Arran Robertson
, George McClure
, Hadley Duncan
, Liam MacIver
and Joshua Easton
all stood firm and defended well.
Next week see's TT2007 enter the world of 11v11 at the Scotland Cup Tournament. Fixtures are to be announced Monday so I will update once I have these.
Well done to all the boys, you have come along way since you were all 6 years old in the fun 4's. All the coaches, past and present (Scott Eaglesham and Scott Keenan) have spoken to me recently and wish to pass on their best to you all for the coming 11's transgression. We all know you are capable of big things as a team with hard work and dedication with every training session and future fixtures.
See you all next weekend.
