Kincorth 6 – 2 Kintore

1st Touch Football Premier Division at Hazlehead on Sunday 7th August

Kincorth v Kintore 1st Touch Premier Division at Hazlehead.

Newly promoted Kintore found it difficult to cope with a Kincorth team who signed five new players in the close season and appointed Dave Reid as manager. Secretary Terry Massie said “It is now up to the guys on the park to do their bit and make us a successful team this season”.

Kincorth had a chance in the second minute to go ahead when a shot from Wood was saved at the second attempt by keeper Lorimer.

Four minutes later from a corner Kincorth Smith’s header was cleared off the line by keeper Lorimer’s foot. Against the run of play Kintore’s Iain Donald beat keeper Valentine with a close range shot.

Kincorth were seeing most of the ball and in twenty minutes a twenty five yard shot from Kris Harris made the score 1-1. A minute later Kincorth’s new signing Hutchins beat two men before crossing to Harris whose weak shot was saved by keeper Lorimer.

With twenty two minutes gone Hutchins made another run down the right, his cross found Stuart Wood who made no mistake from six yards.

Kris Harris got his second goal four minutes later when unmarked at a throw in he turned and fired in a shot to beat keeper Lorimer.

In thirty nine minutes Kintore forced a corner on the right and with his back to goal Brian Innes swivelled round and slotted the ball into the corner of the net making the half time score 3-2.

Half-time: 3-2

Kintore came more into the game in the second half until the seventy seventh minute when Kincorth’s Murray Robertson‘s header hit the back of the net.

With five minutes remaining Mark Hutchin‘s fine play was rewarded with a goal after beating two men in the eighteen yard box.

Just on full time Kincorth made it 6-2 when Greg Knox slid in and pushed the ball past keeper Lorimer.
