Stepping up

For youngsters, one of the joys of playing for a small club is the chance to push on quite quickly, as creaking legs among the older contingent create opportunities.

So there was young William, expecting a season of gentle paced goalkeeping in Div 4, but instead getting pushed on to play in Div 1 with the firsts. And here he is savouring his first victory at that level.

P..p..pick up a pizza

It was freezing cold for the girls Dev Squad game against the ladies seconds last night. That was bad enough, but the ladies had put out a very strong team too. So all in all, it was a pretty tough evening for the girls, who came out on the wrong end of 4-1. Still, a good time was had, and lot was learned and, to compensate, there was pizza from La Cigne in the clubhouse afterwards.

The girls may have come second in the hockey, but they are undoubtedly champion pizza eaters (as no doubt all the best athletes are).

Maintenance day at KAS

Great works were done at KAS this morning, with a small but hardy group of volunteers turning to learn the ropes of pitch maintenance. We ran the drag mat over the pitch and the leaf vacuum round the edges, treated the moss, swept debris from round the outside of the boards, inspected the nets and the banners, cleared gunge from under the gate grating and sprayed some weeds.

It was just over an hour’s work to do everything required, so hopefully not too onerous. We hope we will be able to make this a regular date in future so the pitch stays in top condition. Many thanks to all those who took part.

Khaos krunches Korinthians at KAS

It was top entertainment at KAS on Monday night, with the girls development squad (or Kinross Khaos, as they are to be known) taking on our social team, the Korinthians.

It was to be a story of youth versus experience. The girls obviously brought a lot of youth to the game, and it’s fair to say we were all a bit taken aback with how much running and harassing they were able to keep up. I’m not sure a Kinross team has collectively moved so fast for many years.

The Korinthians, under Lindsey’s tutelage, demonstrated their canniness by only putting on ten players for the first half, no doubt hoping to lull the wet-behind-the-ears teenagers into a false sense of security.

And a sense of security the girls certainly had, being 3-1 ahead at half time.

In the second half, the Korinthians played their trump card, putting on an eleventh player, and the result was a much tighter affair, with the girls only finding the net once.

Final score 4-1 to the girls. Thanks to apprentice umpires Gemma and Anna who kept things well under control.

Taught 'em everything they know

Various members of the KHC coaching staff are looking slightly smug tonight, with the news that the player of the year nominations for the Scotland U16 boys and U16 girls both include former Kobras.

“Taught ‘em everything they know”, declare the aforementioned coaches (slightly implausibly)…

Congratulations to Amy Salmon and Alex Wilson.
