Lowland League Team / Kirwan to the rescue
« Last post by ErnSal on November 21, 2015, 05:40:16 PM »
A well deserved three points for the Colts but a nail biting finish.
Despite having most of the play and creating numerous chances, when Gala equalised in the last quarter of the game it looked as if the Colts might have to settle for a draw but credit must be given to the team for their determination to take all three points. Richard 'Alves' Kirwan who had made several brilliant overlapping runs in the second half scored the goal that he deserved and the goal that the Colts had earned.
Well done to the Colts!
Looking forward to next week's big game.

I'm pleased that we are going to be playing Stirling Albion. When we played at the Albion stadium earlier this year against Stirling Uni, the Colts played some great football and came away with a victory. So, playing in this stadium again holds no fear. Anyway, the Colts away record speaks for itself. I'm looking forward to this cup game. It was good to hear the Colts mentioned on Radio Scotland this morning as the presenter spoke about Stirling Albion's next cup opponents. For some listeners, it will probably be the first time that they have heard the name Cumbernauld Colts.

I didn't manage the journey to Dalbeattie but I saw the result on the lowland league website. Fantastic! Still undefeated away from home. No surprise to see goals from Stephen 'Messi' O'Neill. Looking forward to reading the match report.
Forza Colts!

I'm pleased with the third round draw. An away game against a second division team. We have shown that we can compete in the Lowland league. We have shown that we can beat the best of Junior football. Now the challenge is one level above us. I know it's a one off game but it might give us a clue as to whether there is a gap between lowland league and division 2. This will be an away game that I don't want to miss.
Forza Colts!

What a performance!
Every player was a hero. From start to finish the team gave 100% and their victory was so well deserved. Credit must also go to the coaching staff who have assembled and organised such a great team. They were a joy to watch.
And what a great atmosphere! Today it felt as if Cumbernauld had embraced their home town team.

Could this be another first for the Colts? Highlights of their game with a commentary. Very professionally done.
I watched the penalty claim incident and I think I can see why the referee might have thought that the keeper got a touch. Selkirk touches the ball so that he can go around the keeper but the direction of his touch has the same effect as if the keeper has touched it. So my verdict is a penalty but I can see how the referee got it wrong from his angle.

Lowland League Team / Half full or half empty?
« Last post by ErnSal on October 17, 2015, 07:47:41 PM »
No game for us today but some interesting results. The top three teams in the league all lost but it meant that some of the 'middle' teams gained points and moved above us. So, we now have one or two games in hand in relation to most of the teams above us. Personally, I'm pleased with the results for two reasons:
1) We continue to see that every team in this league is beatable and no team is beyond catching.
2) The defeat of the top three teams means that if we have a good run from now on picking up the points that we deserve we can close the gap.
Spartans are the only team that I have seen that outplayed us but they haven't consistently outplayed the other teams in the league and have had bad results against teams that we outplayed. So......I think the glass is half full.

Forza Colts!

As I said in another thread, I came along to watch today's game as a complete neutral and left totally infuriated for you guys after a totally inept refereeing performance.

Ek's dirty tactics went largely unpunished for long periods of the game, so they got worse and became more frequent. I was sitting too far away to see if the EK penalty decision was correct or not, however you saw it coming because the ref had lost total control of the game by that time and the Colts players were becoming more and more wound up and started to lose a little bit of shape. I have no doubt EK knew what they were doing and it worked.

I was sitting directly across from the EK box and the penalty shout in the dying minutes was as stonewall as you could get, it happened right in front of me and it was a clear penalty, no wonder the people around me and the bench were irate, I actually shook my head in disbelief when I looked over at the ref to see him waving play on. I know he didn't keep up with the field of play at that point but surely he could see it where he was, it was as clear as day.

Anyway, I was impressed with what I saw from your club today. Nothing to do with being a Stirling fan but I thought Blair Munn was excellent in the middle of the park for you and always looked to work the ball. I'll certainly be back later on in the season when we have another free weekend.

Good luck for the remainder of the season.
