Snelling Double Seals 4s Win while 1s Peaked by Perthshire

The men’s result of the weekend belonged to our Men’s 4ths. Neil Edward’s squad were up against the previously unbeaten Gordonians 4s.  While Gordonians dominated possession, GCW were adept at soaking up the pressure and proved to be clinical in their rare attacks.  Bryan Snelling scored twice, while keeper Adam Leslie kept a clean sheet to cap a fine team performance and a 2-0 win.


3 Points for Ladies 3s

It was an early start to our Ladies 1s' winter break when their game against Merlins was rearranged. Some of our other ladies teams however were most certainly out and about.

Our Ladies 2s took on Merlins 2s at Countesswells. The game was sometimes dominated by the GCW girls but their old failing of not being able to turn pressure into goals did come to haunt them. They did score though stalwart Stacey Ashworth but Merlins matched the score so the game ended 1-1.


Zero Degrees and Zero Goals

It was a bright Saturday at ASV if a little chilly as the GCW Girls in Black welcomed Borders. Actuallly GCW were in white for this home game. Despite missing their usual quota, GCW still had 15 keen and eager players hoping to climb the table with another home win.


Men's 1sts Sneak Eleven Goal Thriller

On Saturday our Men’s 1sts travelled to Grangemouth to play Falkirk in what turned out to be a highly entertaining game. Leon Wilkie opened the scoring from a penalty corner before Falkirk equalised with an open play goal after 14 minutes.  Neil Morton Lloyd scored with a reverse stick strike, and then Josh Lawrence put away a rebound after good work from Stu Begg to make it 3-1.  The home team were then awarded their first penalty corner on the stroke of half time, which despite the efforts of Wilkie on the post was forced in for a 3-2 score at the break.


Glasgow Four All

Saturday was the first of two visits to Glasgow this weekend for some players with a game against Glasgow University for the Ladies 1s to be followed up on Sunday with U18 Cup duty against Uddingston.

The GCW Ladies 1s travelled minus 6 core players to their game on Saturday which was always going to be tough against league leaders Glasgow University who are in fine form just now. The girls however gave a good account of themselves and despite losing 4-0 the game never felt like that kind of game. It was a fast flowing game and the main difference between the two sides was the clinical finishing of the students and a couple of decision errors for the GCW girls. The game was fairly even for the first ten minutes until a ball was crashed in to the GCW circle and a piece of indecisive control allowed the students to pick up the pieces and go ahead.


Mixed Bag for Men

Four of our five men’s teams were in action this weekend, with mixed results. Our Men’s 1sts travelled to play Glasgow University with an inexperienced squad.  Youngster Max Lynch made his National League debut, while Liam Sales played just his second game at that level.
