The Under 14 team compete as a 12-a-side team in the North of Scotland area league for the first phase of the year (March to June approximately). The final standing in this league will determine our position in the second phase. The second phase groups teams at similar ability levels together, although not necessarily nearby, in the North of Scotland League 2nd phase. Matches tend to be played on a Friday evening during the playing season.

U14 training sessions are held at Balgate park on Monday evenings 6.30pm – 7.30pm and cater for Primary 5 up to the age of 14.

The 12-a-side cup competitions for our U14 team is called the MacMaster Cup.

The U14’s also get the chance to compete in a number of 6-a-side competitions throughout the year.

The Under 17 team currently compete in an area league comprising local teams of varying ability. Matches tend to be played on a Tuesday evening during the playing season.

The cup competition for Under 17’s is called the MacTavish Juvenile, this is for 12-a-side teams.
