21s put in great effort
Port Glasgow Boys Club 21s walked away from the Glasgow Cup with their heads held high after getting 12 out of 15 points in their group section against premier and first division opposition. The Port’s never-say-die attitude produced some excellent results especially the Rutherglen result, as they were premier league treble winning champs last year. A lot of football was played over the weekend and it took its toll on a lot of boys. The Port gave everything they had in the final against a well-drilled and experienced Harmony Row side but it just wasn't to be. A big thanks to everyone who helped and supported the boys throughout a long weekend.

The 2001s are now back training for the new season. The boys will have a friendly on Saturday morning and manager will give details out at training.

Port travelled to Ferguslie Park to take on Kilpatrick (Yellow) on Saturday after a five-week break, raring to go. Unfortunately the opposing team let us down and didn’t show up. Some of the parents joined the boys on the pitch for a kickabout and the bibs team won 5-3.
Spirits were then lifted on the boys’ trip to their sponsor Marcus Humphrey House where they were given lunch and presented with their new kits. All the boys say a very big thank you to Marcus Humphrey House for their continued sponsorship and also a big thanks to the parents who joined in so the boys didn’t miss out on a game.
2005s -- The 2005s had a friendly against Partick at the weekend and played a few games with all boys mixing in well. Charlie Seggie, Sean Reeve, Kyle Spark and Logan Madden passed the ball well at the back with the boys also moving the ball well in midfield, including Matthew Rodgers, Calum Watters and Reece Farrell. With the boys working as a team, the ball was getting to the players up front, young Sean Tosh scoring plenty and Devlin Anderson not too far behind. Joseph Adams pulled off some fine saves in goal for the Port. Well done boys.
2006s -- The three teams played their four games at Ralston on Sunday as the league started back after the holidays. They gave good creditable performances. Every boy can still learn to take their training into matches. Scorers: Greig Emerson (8), Patrick Hurrell (6), Ryan Graham (6), Adam Watt (2), Zac Stewart (2), Rhys McCready (2) and Dylan Tolan. The team are looking for boys at 2006 age group to develop the Port Boys’ way. Call 07928 533991 for details. Sponsors: Ferguson Shipyard Workers, UPGSC, Crawfurd Car Centre
