Fraserburgh Primary Schools Football League is underway with the second meet of the league which was hosted by Kessock Park taking place last week, Wednesday, May 25.
Despite the blustery conditions, the excellent facilities at the park enabled all the schools to demonstrate the meteoric improvement in skill level that has been achieved since last year.
Paul Winter Active Schools co-ordinator explained: “This is largely due to dedicated volunteers recruited by Active Schools from the local clubs to undertake level 1 coach training provided by the Junior Scottish Football Association last September, which saw sixty candidates in all going through their paces.”
South Park School made a storming start in the first meeting taking the bulk of the points, with Lochpots coming a close second.
However at the second meeting of the league on Wednesday, Inverallochy hit their form, managing to beat South Park 4 -0 and Lochpots 1-0.
The consistency of South Park’s performance though rescued them and by the end of the meeting both they, and Inverallochy had won three games and lost one, giving both an equal share of the points.
Dark horses of the competition appear to be a currently under-strength Rathen School, who inflicted Inverallochy’s only defeat of the evening, and will be a team to be reckoned with when back at full strength.
Rosehearty remain to find their form, but have a sound base of skilled players, a dedicated team of coaches, were only just shaded in their games and are expected to surprise any team that treats them complacently.
Active Schools and the Junior Scottish Football Association will be running level 2 training shortly and anyone already having level 1 and wanting to progress to the next level can contact Paul on 01346 511239 (or email at firstname.lastname@example.org) to register their interest and to get details.
