Scottish Schools Football Cup Games

As the SSFA cup tournament starts to heat up, 2 of our teams played round 4 matches this week.  The U’15, managed by Mr Bett, travelled to Dundee to play St Johns High School - the boys fought hard in extremely challenging conditions of high winds and a wet pitch and unfortunately lost with a 5-2 result.  Both Goals were scored by Blair Duncanson.

Back at Aberdeen Sports Village, the U’14’s enjoyed the luxury of an indoor pitch and won their round against St Annes High School who travelled up from Dumfermline with a final score of 4-1.  Goals were scored by Adam Duffy, Lewis MacKinnon and Calum Mackintosh.

A special thank you to S5 pupil Owen Lawrence for acting as our official referee for the match and to Mrs Bett, our minibus driver and official photographer.  Click here for more photos of the U14’s game
