ON Sunday (October 2) the Under 15 Colony Park side were in Scottish Cup action at a very wet Stonehaven pitch which the referee only just declared playable a few minutes before kick off.
Despite the surface the 15s played their best football of the season. An early penalty was dispatched into the corner by Nathan May and settled any nerves. May doubled his tally with a great header from a pinpoint corner from Ross Geddes. Stonehaven grabbed a lifeline from a set-piece corner but Andrew Smart restored the lead shortly after, firing in from 18 yards after a typical surging run. Near the end of the match a Scott Forsyth lay back saw Danny Gerrard hammer the ball into the corner of the net for a well deserved fourth goal.
The Under 15 Colts had the short trip to meet local rivals Kintore United in the league and really found their shooting boots leading 6 – 1 at half time. George Neilson grabbed four with Daniel Watt grabbing a hat-trick and both Craig Hay and Greg Center scoring two apiece. Conor Bolda and Kyle Ross completed the scoring for Colony for a 13 -3 victory, their biggest ever win in competitive football.
For the Under 14 Park side it was a potentially tricky trip to Donside, the match being played in constant drizzle. Colony took command of the match from the kick off and took the lead on 27 minutess when Ben Duncan had a left footed shot from the right blocked by the keeper with Lewis Thomson slotting the loose ball into the net. Five minutes later Colony doubled their lead when Dale Rennie powered into the box and hit a great left foot strike that the keeper couldn’t keep out making it 2-0 at half time. In 53 minutes Stuart Hepburn played a good pass into the box, and Craig Mackie used his strength the hold off two defenders and calmly chipped the keeper. Five minutes later Ryan Harper launched a deep cross into the box and Lewis Thomson controlled it, wheeled around and slotted past the keeper for his second and Colony’s fourth. As the Colony team tired a sprited Donside came back into the match with two late goals.
Colony Park Under 13s were expected to win well in the Scottish Cup against Huntly and they did exactly that . The match started well for Colony with the first attack seeing Sam Robertson breaking free of the Huntly defence and slotting the ball past the keeper after only 20 seconds and the Colony goals soon started to flow. The other goals in the first half were scored by Graeme Cochrane, Cameron Smith, Finlay Watson and Sam Roberston with two more to get his hat-trick. further goals came from Ewan Collie, Finlay Watson, Graeme Cochrane, and Bradley Yates with two goals.
