Milton AFC 2-1 Giffnock North
A fantastic result and performance from Milton against the current league leaders. Milton started the match well and kept it up for the duration of the game. Mitchell had a rasping shot parried away for a corner after good play from Murphy. Giffnock took the lead slightly against the run of play but minutes later Milton equalised when Grieve sent in a tremendous cross and Watt headed it past the keeper. The big strong home side were trying their best to bully Milton but the visitors were having none of it and were giving as good as them.
Gardiner and Anderson were controlling the middle of the park with Watt and Murphy causing the home team all sorts of problems with their constant movement.Just before the break Watt tried to set up Gardiner but his effort was blocked. 10 minutes into the second half Gardiner head a Mitchell corner kick strongly in the net. Milton’s tails were up now and started growing in confidence. Henderson was unlucky not to score Milton’s 3rd but the keeper saved well. Giffnock hit the post and the bar and Milton keeper McKay made a marvellous save to deny the home team and Milton went home with all 3 points.
Milton AFC are away to Port Glasgow Celtic in the West Cup on Saturday 14 October, KO 1.30. extra time and penalties if required.
Milton Under 21s 2-1 Renfrew
An important victory with a depleted squad saw Milton take all 3 points. In what was a stuffy performance, goals from Alan Hughes and a great finish from Kyle Thompson sealed the victory. Well done lads, not our best performance but we now look to next week where we are at home to Finnart.
Milton U17s 13-0 Cowie
With both teams missing key players due to the October holidays, it was Milton who took control early on in this local derby, racing to a 5 goal lead by halftime. The second half was more of the same with the Milton defence staying solid, the midfield dominating the game, and some excellent creativity and clinical finishing from the front players.
Fair play to Cowie for not giving up and some heroic defending & goalkeeping kept the score down even more than it could’ve been.

Milton 03s game was cancelled.
A great result in the North of Glasgow for Milton 2004’s yesterday, a result that sees them top the table in the early part of the season. The boys were at it from the first minute and it was no surprise when Marc K scored in the opening minutes to put Milton 1 up. We kept Petershill pegged back into their own half for long periods and were creating lots of chances in front of goal but the Petershill keeper was in good form and made a few good stops from various Milton players, however Petershill managed to create a couple of chances of their own and when awarded a free kick 20 yards from the Milton goal the Petershill player made the most of the rare opportunity they had on goal by blasting a free kick into the Milton box which deflected of a Milton defender and found the back of the Milton net 1-1, Fair play to the boys though as they were back in front within minutes 2-1 half time Marc K with his second of the match.
The second half was more of the same although Milton were playing a bit more direct using the wind to their advantage as they never really good to grips with newly laid astro pitch which was really holding the ball up when passes were being made, The boys went on onto score another two goals in the second half Keir E and Sam C both getting on the score sheet numerous other chances were created in the second half but the game finished 4-1 Milton and another all-round good team performance. Next week we are away to Motherwell ITC which will really test the lads.
FVFDA Result for U13s: Milton Reds 4-1 Stenhousemuir
For the second time in a week both teams played each other, and for the second time Milton won the match convincingly. With a few boys missing it was going to be a challenge as Stenhousemuir were sitting just behind us in 3rd position in the league.
Early in the match Stenhousemuir took the lead but the Milton boys showed their strength of character by coming back and dominating the majority of the game, especially as this was the first match this season where they conceded a goal.
Good, quick passing and moving were key today. Special mention to Craig who played in goals and played well. The boys have now played most of the teams in the top half of the league and are sitting top of the league in a very strong position.
Milton 2006 Central played well in a convincing victory.
Milton BC 2007 in the central navy division had no game today.
Milton Reds 2007 were away from home and showed great character to draw the game after a comeback from being behind for most of the game.
Milton 2008s were in league action against Central Boys at Forthbank. The early 9am kickoff had no effect on the boys as they came out the traps and had Central under pressure, their keeper keeping our 2008s at bay. Soon the pressure was too much and the great football being played by the boys was rewarded with some good team goals.
After the break we continued to put Central under pressure and were rewarded with some magnificent goals. Slack play at the back allowed Central a consolation goal. Great performance by the boys – training Monday 7-8pm at Raploch Campus and Wednesday 6-7pm at Bannockburn High.
Team were back to their best today. Great effort, skills, passing and loads of great goals after some fantastic football. They also worked more as a team today and less as individuals. Sky’s the limit for this group of kids.
Today’s team did well in their 4 games today. First 2 games were close and could have maybe been a bit better in our finishing of the chances we created. Game 3 was tough but we never stopped trying to play football. Game 4 was excellent with some really good football and goals scored. Thanks to Ross and Rhuaridh for helping us out and playing double.
