Scottish FA School League - Match Day 4

Scottish FA School League - Match Day 4

 

 This season's 7-a-side league for school aged players with a learning disability drew to a close on Friday 15th May, with the finale bringing an extremely tense finish for two of the teams involved. 

The lead at the top of the league had swapped hands on a number of occasions between West Calder HS and Woodlands throughout the season and the scene was set for a gripping finish at Albyn Park, West Lothian.  The West Lothian and Edinburgh sides were tied at the top of the league with 21 points after 3 match days and the winners were decided in the very last match of the 2014/2015 season.  The atmosphere could have been cut with a knife during the opening 10 minutes of the match as both team knew that it was a 'winner takes all scenario' - and it was West Calder who took the lead, only to be pegged back immediately by Woodlands.  However, the teams were only level for a matter of minutes as the West Lothian side stamped their authority on the match and ran out 3-1 winners to take the match and the title.  Both teams, as winners and runners up, now qualify for the SFA/SDS National League Finals day, providing the opportunity to test themselves against teams from across the country.   

 

The match day and the league as a whole was played in an encouraging manner, with sportsmanship and friendly rivalry present throughout as the players got to know each other.  It was clear to see teams improving over the 4 match days and this was clear as Pilrig Park (Edinburgh) were able to push both Woodlands and West Calder on match day 3 before tiring and showing signs of inexperience against players who had been there before.  Drummond (Edinburgh) and Cedarbank (Cedarbank) made up the teams who competed this year and thanks goes out to all players and staff for attending fixtures across the four local authorities in Lothian. 

The league was, again, supported by Street Soccer and West Lothian College who were kind enough to provide referees for each of the fixtures.  Thanks is also extended to the Scottish FA who continue to support the league and provide the winners and runners up with the much coveted trophies and medals - prizes that will no doubt be keenly contested again next season.
