Colony Colts resounding 6-1 away win against league leaders Portlethen on Saturday was without doubt their best performance so far this season.

The belief the Under 14s have in their ability coupled with the correct attitude and desire meant that, to the coaching team, this result was no surprise.

Colts started on the front foot and held the vast majority of possession for the first five minutes but Portlethen proved their worth by scoring a breakaway goal. The Colts held firm and in 25 minutes Lewis Emslie coolly slotted home for the equaliser.

The weather was not suited for football but both teams kept the energy levels up and half-time came with the score even. Colts manager Fraser Fitzpatrick made some attack minded changes at the interval feeling that Portlethen were there for the taking and he was proved right.

The chances started coming and further goals from Aiden Riach (2), Max Dawson, Paul Davidosn and Connor Christie without reply ensured the Colts saw out the game to claim all three points.

After the match Fitzpatrick said: “This performance was again a true team effort with the goals and assists being shared, set pieces being worked to perfection confident goalkeeping and solid defending allowing midfielders to be creative and attackers being strong and direct.

“Despite the conditions, this was a tremendous effort - everyone involved should feel proud.”
