It was a busy night at Canal Parks for the Lochaber goalkeeper in the recent Mowi U17 London Shield derby against Kilmallie with constant attacks leading to a 10-1 victory for the home side.

A wet pitch led to many sliding tackles and a few tumbles as the sides battled it out before an audience of family and friends.

Each player gave their all and showed some remarkable skills with both sides matching each other well in midfield action.

Lochaber also fielded several female members in their squad who showed every bit as much enthusiasm, determination and skill as everyone else in tackling, and taking control of the ball from their Kilmallie opponents.

However in beating a path through the defence to score, Kilmallie really came into their own with Lewis Luxton scoring four goals, three to Shane O’Rua and one each from Seamus MacFarlane, Damien Hunter and Ryan MacLeod.
