Campbeltown Pupils 2009s 3
Little Dynamos 2009s 8
GDYFL – Under 13s, Division 2

Campbeltown Pupils’ under-13 team played their first league game of the Glasgow and District Youth Football League second division on Sunday, slipping to an 8-3 defeat at home against Little Dynamos 2009s.

The first half saw the visitors start brightly, with their strength and pace up front putting the Pupils’ defence under some early pressure.

It was the local team that made the breakthrough, however, after 25 minutes, when a fine run down the right wing by Green saw his cut-back find Prentice who finished in some style with a first-time strike.

The lead  was short lived, and two quick-fire strikes before half-time gave the Glasgow team a 2-1 lead at the interval.

Into the second half and an early Dynamos strike saw them take a 3-1 lead, before the Pupils halved the deficit with a reversal of their first goal; this time Prentice finding Green with an excellent through ball before a fine finish from the striker.

At this point, the Pupils were threatening to equalise, however, as they are learning at this level, the game can slip away quickly, and this was the case as the Little Dynamos strikers’ constant pressure paid off with three further goals in rapid succession.

A fine run and another composed finish by Green made it 6-3, before two late goals for the visitors put a slightly harsh reflection on the final score.

This Sunday, the 2009s are on Scottish Cup duty, with a tough away tie in Hamilton against first division team Scotland Boys Club 2009s.
