This was to be the first game for Orkney since the thirteenth December and historically they have struggled to maintain momentum after the festive break in previous seasons. However, the squad had four excellent training sessions under their belts leading up to this game and a strong group of players left Orkney on the Northlink ferry for Aberdeen.
Orkney arrived at Blairgowrie in good time. The weather for the day was sunny with a light breeze, but fairly cool. Following overnight frost, the pitch had thawed sufficiently to allow the game to proceed.
Orkney Under 14’s Match Report v Granite City 18 January 2020
On Saturday 18th January a squad of 20 Under 14’s made their way to play Granite City in Aberdeen.
After discussion with the Granite City coaches and to ensure players had as much game time as possible it was agreed to have 4 sides, 2 from Orkney and 2 from Granite City.
This resulted in a 4 teams of 12 with the Orkney sides receiving 2 guest players in each team. The format was round robin each team playing each other in games of 20 minutes and all teams playing at the same time on the two adjacent pitches.
It was a chilly but sunny Saturday at Aberdeen Wanderers ground which was being used for the Under 14’s matches
