Last weekend there were two GCW men’s matches to get the season started. Our Men’s 1sts travelled down to Kilgraston to play the ever-competitive Perthshire. GCW’s somewhat makeshift squad produced moments of good hockey, but were beaten 7-3 by the better team on the day. Goals for the away team came from Leon Wilkie (2) and John Graham. The other highlight was first team debuts for Neil Edward, Kurt Schaefer and just a second National League appearance for youngster Charlie Anderson.
Our Men’s 5ths were also away, making the shorter journey to play Ellon. New captain Liam Wedekind was pleased with the first 20 minutes of each half, but Ellon’s greater pace and experience proved too much as they ran out 6-0 winners.
