East of Scotland League
Result: Coldstream 2 Heriot Watt University 2
Date: 13/05/2017

Bright sunshine bathed Home Park for this last game of the season and Sponsor's day but a rather disagreeable swirling wind would make clever long passing difficult.

Early play favoured the Blues and  some clever interplay from Brown and Kris Dixon put in Windram who slammed the ball past a despairing Saunders to make it 1-0 after only five minutes. The Students were not third in the League for nothing however and they showed some clever touches only for McGovern to shoot wide. Shiel in the home goal was not unduly troubled and the Coldstream defence was as firm as the Rock of Gibraltar. Smith should have equalised but he somehow managed to head over the bar from five yards and the same player fired wide a few minutes later from a tight angle.

With the visitors trying to turn the screw it was the Azurri who struck again and after a mix up in the student's defence Sutherland fizzed the ball home to make it 2-0 at the break.

The half time cuppa seemed to have energised the Watt and Shiell did well to save from Dowds as the home defence started to come under more sustained pressure. So much so that Smith pulled a goal back in the sixty fifth minute to make a game of it. This storm was weathered and it was Coldstream's turn to attack and with the visiting defence showing cracks Brown shot just wide before a mazy run by Kris Dixon ended with a shot going just wide amidst cries of bravissimo from at least one adoring fan. The Blues were now dominant and a Sutherland rocket went just wide before the wheel turned yet again in this enthralling encounter with Dowds just failing to find the net before Shiell made a brave save at the feet of the same player.

The ninety minutes were up and the fans were enquiring if the Official might like to blow his whistle. But no. The game went on and on although there had been no injuries until McGovern headed the equaliser in what seemed like the ninety seventh minute. The whistle then blew with sustained mutterings from the sizeable crowd as to the efficacy of the whistlers timepiece. 

A draw was probably a fair result and both teams could draw credit from the match which was played in sportsmanlike fashion. Coldstream thus finish the season in a very repectable fifth position in the League and will look to improve on that in season 2017-2018

Brown and Ainslie for Coldstream were booked as was Ross for the visitors.

Man of the Match was chosen by James Brown and he gave the accolade to Kriss Dixon.

East of Scotland League
Result: Tweedmouth Rangers 0 Coldstream 4
Date: 05/05/2017

Coldstream put Wednesday nights defeat in Edinburgh behind them with a comprehensive victory against a Tweedmouth Rangers side whic had earlier in the week had held League leaders Leith Athletic to a draw.

The pitch was in fine condition if a liitle bumpy and the freezing wind from the North Sea and the sun in a bad airt made it an uncomfortable night for the decent crowd. The Blues started in a rush and were ahead after only two minutes when a Windram corner was headed home by Logan. The game then settled down into a dour midfield struggle with neither side producing many clear cut chances although K.Dixon glanced a header just wide. Patterson in the home goal became busier and on a couple of occasions the ball bounced about in the box with no visiting forward managing to get a touch. Lee then produced a fine save from Patterson before K.Dixon made it 2 turning in a fine cross from Windram just before the break.

The match continued in much the same vein in the second half and Strang missed a couple of sitters after some fine work by K.Dixon. Rangers came more into the game without causing over much danger in the final third and new boy Shiel in the visitor's goal had little to keep him warm. Lee was having a fine game in midfield and young R.Dixon was proving tigerish in defence and even in attack when he attempted a cheeky lob over Patterson.. The game was wrapped up in the eighty ninth minute when Windram scored possibly the goal of the season with a flashing drive past Patterson who probably never saw it. One minute later the same player made it 4 to round off a fine night for the Streamers. 

Ainslie for Coldstream was booked as were Howard and Graham for Rangers.

Coldstream: Shiel, R.Dixon, Walker, Ainslie, Logan, Hall, Brown, Lee, K.Dixon, Strang, Windram. Subs: Beasley, Johnson, Dickson.

 


King Cup Semi Final
Result: Lothian Thistle/Hutchison Vale 5 Coldstream 0
Date: 03/05/2017

Coldstream crashed out of the King Cup at Saughton Enclosure on Wednesday night when they conceded five first half goals to the powerful Lothian Thistle/Hutchison Vale side. The second period was goal less so we will call that part of the match a draw.

The Blues started brightly enoughand Dixon tested Swain in the home goal with a shot from the edge of the box after good work from Windram and Brown. However Lothian soon began to show their class, having already won three Cups and being well placed in the League.

The floodgates opened in the 15th minute when Devlin played in Wringe to score. The same player made it 2 five minures later heading past Shell from a well taken corner.

The Blues were very much on the back foot and Devlin broke through to make it 3 in the twenty eighth minute. Three minutes later O'Donnell made it 4 after Coldstream failed to clear their lines and the rout was completed in the thirty seventh minute when Hare scored to make it 5 after Shell had saved well from Wringe.

Johnson replaced the injured Beasley and the break was reached without any further misadventures. Coldstream were much more organised in the second period and they conceded no further goals.

The Committee Man of the Match was Phil Johnson.

Lothian Thistle/Hutchison Vale: Swain, Sherlock, MacKenzie, Crawford, Munro, Muir, Hare, Brown, Wringe, Devlin, O'Donnell. Subs: Mungall, Moore, Hutchison, Simpson, Wishart.

Coldstream: Shell, Hall, Walker, Ainslie, Beasley, Grant, Brown, Lee, K.Dixon, Strang, Windram. Subs: Johnson, R.Dixon.
