It was Cup Semi Final action down by the Riverside in very wet and soggy conditions as we welcomed Breadalbane back again for the 2nd time in 3 days for the Tony McDonald Cup.
The first half was very tight with both defences holding firm and the wet conditions making it difficult for either side to create many chances with Ciaran being the nearest, having a shot well saved by the Breadalbane GK after nice play down the right
HT Jeanfield Swifts 0 Breadalbane 0
We made a couple of tactical substitutions at half time and this instantly paid dividends within a couple of minutes when a wonderful run and cross by Kyle was met at the near post by Callum who ended his scoring drought with a lovely header to give us the lead. We were starting to take control when another good move was met smartly by Ciaran for his first Jeanfield goal since his deadline day move back to the Swifts. We were playing some lovely stuff even in the wet conditions and had a couple more chances to put the game out of sight. With 12 remaining a superb free kick over the defence was met by Ben to make it 3-0. Another driving run by Kyle was met by Callum for his 2nd as we we started to cruise towards the finishing line. Both Aidan and Sonny came close as the defenders sniffed their chance of glory but it was left to Ben to finish what he had started with 10 mins to go on Sunday by rifling in a free kick right on the final whistle.
FT Jeanfield Swifts 5 Breadalbane 0
Well done to the boys for reaching a cup final in their first season at 11s. A superb team performance with some fantastic play across the whole team. Man of the Match was a difficult one but Ciaran gets the nod for having a great game in centre midfield, always looking to create chances and scoring that all important 2nd to give us breathing space at a key time.
