2007 Match Report – Sun 14th Nov

This Saturday (14th) our 2007 side, including our regulars and 2 Harrys travelled to Meadowmill for the challenge of the advanced 5 - a - side teams in their age group. Gladly the elements subsided long enough for us to enjoy 3 tough games. First up was one of two North Berwick teams, which proved a good test after a slow start with 2 well worked goals from Cameron. We were unlucky not to capitalize even more from some good chances. Then we quickly moved onto a game against the second of two North Berwick sides. This time we had a better performance and more team effort, with some great passing work and a fine goal from young Fraser. It was a closer contest than the final score showed. Last…

2007 Match Report – Sun 8th Nov

The 2007 team, including 2 Stemp brothers, battled both local rivals Haddington and the elements on a stormy afternoon in a friendly home fixture at Memorial park. It was a 7 a side contest of epic proportions. The passing style of Haddington coupled with an aggressive attacking formation made for a tough contest for the home side, but after a slow start we all gave a good account of ourselves. It was good to see our regulars lead by example and contribute to a great set of games, assisting in goals from Charlie, Fraser and Christian. These friendly 7 a side fixtures are a great way of preparing our skilled 2007 team for the challenges ahead; it also shows how far we have come in a short space of time.…

First festival of the season: 2007 Match Report – Sat 29th Aug

The 2007s started their first festival of the season on Saturday when the first group of players kicked of at 10am. It was a great start back and they showed great energy in every match. We dominated possession and created numerous chances and defended well. Cameron Miller showed he's got an eye for goal. Josh continues to improve every match and played well in attack and defence. Fraser and Charlie had their usual appetite with some great skill to score and setup their team mates. Harry Stemp broke well from the back with some mazy runs. We won our first 3 matches quite comfortably but I think my coaches highlight was the game against North Berwick which was 2 each. It was a competitive match and played in the right spirit. In the second…

Flashes of brilliance – Sat 29th Aug: 2004 Match Report

The 2nd half of the Season kicked off with an away trip to Longniddry. The game started with the team producing flashes of where they left off last week at the MYS Festival and, if it hadn't been for some excellent goalkeeping by the Longniddry goalie, Gullane would have scored a lot more than the 3 they did. It has always been the approach to let players experience playing in different positions which asks a lot of them but it does make them adapt to different situations in games, which will hopefully allow them to develop into more rounded players. With the Transfer Window closing on Tuesday the coaching staff are more than happy with the current playing squad and do not forsee any additions to the playing staff. Next Fixture…
