With the league being off for the holidays we were on our travels today away to Kilsyth to play Garrell United from the Central Scotland league in a friendly ?
The weather was not kind to us unfortunately with persistent rain and the game was evenly matched in the opening exchanges. Jeanfield took the lead midway through when Ethan opened his account with us with a great finish from a tight angle after some tenacious play in the build up. Our hosts though got an equalizer when a wee defensive mix-up was punished. Nevertheless we went into the break a goal up when right on half-time Callum was put through and calmly rounded the GK for his eighth of the season
HT Garrell United 1 Jeanfield 2
The conditions were making play really difficult and it's to great credit that both teams made the second half really enjoyable to watch with chances at both ends. The boys made the game safe though when Ethan rounded off a great display with a fantastic shot from the 18 yard line high into the corner ?⚽
A really good competitive game which whilst a friendly was a great confidence boost to the boys. Man of the match was Ethan, one of our most recent additions, who was superb up front linking up well with his other strike partners and scoring 2 great goals. Well done Ethan. ⚽?
Many thanks to Mark and his boys from Garrell United for hosting us and for their generous hospitality which we looking forward to repaying in the coming months at Jeanfield ?⚽
