Lost chances mean Killearn miss final

YET another trophy slipped away from Killearn on Sunday, when they were unable to beat 10-man Deanston in the Telfer Cup semi-final at Drymen.

It started off well enough for Killearn and they carried most of the early threat, although they failed to cash in on their pressure.

They had the ball in the Deanston net after a goalmouth scramble but the referee ruled Alan More offside.

Killearn keep the pressure on

KILLEARN maintained their position in the title race on Saturday when they joined the small number of visiting sides to have taken full points at Thornhill this season.

The reigning champions were without regular keeper Stuart Ashworth and his deputy Colin Banks. In their absence the gloves were given to utility man Chris Jewell and early on Chris had no more than a passing interest in fierce shots from Thornhill’s Andy Bailey and Gareth Killen. Fortunately for him and Killearn, both came back off the bar. The first goal of the match went to Killearn when Alan More scored the opener from the penalty spot.

Killearn start summer football title defence

FORTH & ENDRICK’S 99th season of summer football starts on Saturday evening.

The same 12 clubs will be taking part as last year and as usual, some clubs will not be able to call on the services of all their players as many will still be tied to winter clubs.

Killearn on brink of keeping title

THE major surprise at Killearn was the difficulty the champions had in the first half in subduing lowly Kippen. Allan More and David Cameron both scored in the first 10 minutes of the game and at that point it looked as if another big score was on the cards.

The young Kippen side had other ideas and got their reward on the half-hour mark when Matthew Lygate thundered in a 25-yard shot and at half-time Kippen were still only 2-1 behind.

Killearn book place in the final

LAST Thursday’s Margaret White Trophy semi-final at Drymen was all wrapped up for Killearn by half-time.

They had recovered from the shock of losing the opening goal to Mark Linning after just 13 minutes had been played. Thistle were the livelier side in that early spell but their chances were considerably lessened when they conceded two free kicks in a minute.
