Forfar Boys Under-15s end their season on a high

Forfar Boys Under-15’s ended their football season on a high with a seven goals to three home victory against St Murdochs.

This saw them finish a creditable third in the table to cap an excellent league campaign over the course of the season.

Forfar started quickly and were two goals up within the first ten minutes, both from the boot of Watt.

The first was a good finish from the edge of the area and the second was a smart turn and shot inside the six yard box.

Rigby then stepped up to add two goals to make it 4-0. His first was a long range free kick from his own half which deceived the keeper and the second was a good strike from the corner of the box.

In between Rigby’s strikes Forfar had another four good opportunities to score as they dominated proceedings.

Norrie saw a square ball cut out just as he looked to score and then his excellent turn and shot just inside the box was saved by the visiting keeper, and Watt had a shot turned round the post before Baillie fired a free kick just over the bar.

St Murdochs pulled a goal back but Forfar went close again as Baillie saw another free kick go over the bar. However, it was soon five for Forfar when Watt claimed his hat trick with another turn and shot in the box.

Even though the visitors pulled back another goal, Forfar ended the first half well on top and Norrie was unlucky to see his effort from a Baillie corner in a packed box blocked on the line.

Not for the first time in recent games both teams had to contend with blustery conditions and as a result the second half was scrappy at times.

St Murdochs got on the score sheet again to make it 5-3, but Forfar responded with a sixth as Baillie neatly finished a quickly taken Edward free kick.

Watt made it seven for Forfar after being put in by a good ball from Edward to end the scoring, and with man of the match Crozier keeping his defence well organised Forfar saw out the game without too much trouble from their opponents.

Forfar: Beattie, Rigby, Crozier, Roy, Davidson, Simpson, Baillie, Duncan, Shortridge(c), Edward, Watt, Norrie, Menmuir and Urquhart.
