Last Saturday saw us entertain Jeanfield Swifts FC from the East Region Premier League in Perthshire for a right to be in the Semi-final of the GA cup.
On this we showed again what can do when we found ourselves twice behind in the game but kept going right to the final whistle where we equalised with the last kick of the game. Unfortunately we were not able to complete the fightback and lost 4-3 in the penalty shoot-out.
However, as I said at the start we have started to show what we are capable of doing. Our target is to continue this good work and maintain and climb up the Superleague in the remaining 11 games we have to play and avoid the drop which we should do with hard work and determination.
The squad has seen in recent weeks us further strengthen our coaching staff with the addition of a top rated Goal Keeping coach in Craig Stephen. Craig comes to the club with vast of experience from his playing days ( Forfar Ath, Sunnybank from the 1990’s) and more recently obtaining his coaching badges. One major plus with Craig is that he too is a local lad that came through the ranks of Banchory Boys and played for the Club in his early days.
This has seen the 2 keepers at the club go through their paces and seen marked improvements in their attitude and focus. Just what the guys wanted and needed.
With the result from the week-end, it now just leaves us with league games and with us away to Hermes this week-end then at home the week after to Deveronside we need to take the previous performances and push for points on the board and solidify our position and keep the free flowing football we have been playing.
Over the coming weeks with the midweeks games away to start, I really hope we can see you all turn up for the games we have at home and support the guys.
Mon the Saints!
