Term Four

Thursday 22nd March was semi-final day for Banchory Academy’s U14 boys football team who travelled to face Alford Academy in the Aberdeenshire cup.
Following on from a previous four consecutive wins , the game started surprisingly shaky for Banchory with Alford playing the better football. However, the quality within the boys saw them manage to enter half time at 3-1 up.  After words at half time the boys put in a tremendous display second half which saw them capitalise on the draining confidence of Alford, finishing the game as 7-1 winners.  Another big win for the boys, however, the scoreline certainly does not reflect the efforts and performance put in by Alford, especially in the first half who on numerous occasions went close to scoring more.  Banchory will now face Ellon in the final.
