Peebles Away Trip

Gullane Athletic U13's had an away trip today to play the return fixture against Peebles.  This was the teams 4th league fixture of the season and the 3rd away from "home". After a couple of heavy defeats it was heartening to see the team continue to put into a game situation what they have been practicing. A strong away support gave plenty of encouragement and although the result was a narrow 2-1 defeat all the players should be happy with how they played. Next match is on Thursday 1st Sept versus Longniddry Villa colts kick off 6.30 at Aberlady.

The circle of life!

21 years after a team last representing Gullane Athletic AFC played a competitive match the current crop of U13 players managed to do what their predecessors failed to do and that was to beat a team from Peebles. Back then the Gullane team had to beat Peebles to gain promotion in the Lothian Amatuer league but failed to do so with a 4 -0 defeat.  Today, 21 years later that wrong was righted when after a really enjoyable game of football Gullane run out winners 4-3.  Both teams have to be commended for their attitude and importantly skill levels. Next fixture is away to Redhall FC on Sunday 21st August.

A massive well down to all our age groups who played this weekend. From the 2008 who started on their 5 a side footballing journey this weekend through to the 07's, 06's, 05's and the 04's.

2007 Match Report – Sun 17th Jan: First futsal

The 2007 squad started off 2016 in fantastic form this weekend at our first of three 5-a-side futsal tournaments scheduled for the first quarter of the year. We continued our high standard of 5-a-side performances to date with a great set of results which saw us win all 5 games against COCKENZIE, 2 NORTH BERWICK TEAMS, ABERLADY, and last but far from least HADDINGTON. With a squad of 8 including the brothers Stemp (Harry & Ollie), Harry O’, Cameron F, Josh MC, Benji B, Christian L & Charlie G we rotated Goalkeepers in each game and spread out our game time fairly evenly, we also received a few plaudits from rival coaches (which is always nice). A big plus was seeing that great fun was had by all involved with…
