Football: Crisp Win For Gorgie Kicks Off 2016

Gorgie 5 Barclay Viewforth United 2 A frosty winters morning at Peffermill set the scene for this first Barclay match of 2016 – a Norrie Wilson Cup tie against Gorgie on Saturday 16th. An early strike from Gorgie gave them the advantage. For much of the first half Barclay pressed for an equaliser, enjoying plenty… Continue Reading Football: Crisp Win For Gorgie Kicks Off 2016

Football: Three points secured in Oxgangs Thriller

Barclay recorded a much needed win on Saturday at Colinton Mains, creeping past AC Oxgangs in a pulsating match. The drizzle had set in well before kick off, and on the soft and unpromising surface there unfolded an end to end contest. The match was characterised by attacking verve by both sides and a fair… Continue Reading Football: Three points secured in Oxgangs Thriller

Football: Barclay Exit Cup Despite Improvements

Charlotte Chapel 3 Barclay Viewforth United 0 It was a considerably more poised performance on Saturday’s second leg Buckstone Roofing Cup match at South Gyle. In dreich and overcast conditions Barcay had the better of the opening exchanges before a stray defensive pass gifted Charlotte Chapel centre forward Iain McCalman a well executed mid distance… Continue Reading Football: Barclay Exit Cup Despite Improvements

Football: Cup Hopes Bleak After First Leg

Barclay Viewforth United 1 Charlotte Chapel 6 Another heavy defeat on Saturday morning has effectively ended Barclay interest in the Buckstone Roofing Cup half way through the tie.

Football: A Tight Contest But Still No Joy

Barclay Viewforth United 2 Broxburn Baptists 3 Two well crafted goals by Broxburn’s Jason McGuiness were the undoing of Barclay at South Gyle on Saturday 12th September. These scores were countered in the first half by a fine headed goal by Matt, putting the team right back in the mix. With Broxburn down to ten… Continue Reading Football: A Tight Contest But Still No Joy

Football: Another Disappointing Late Show

Barclay Viewforth United 3  St Mary’s Metropolitan 8 There was another “late show” on Saturday 5th Sept and again the beneficiaries were our opponents as Barclay Viewforth United conceded three late goals to really spoil the final result. After pulling back to 4:3 through the captain’s header early in the second half it was disappointing… Continue Reading Football: Another Disappointing Late Show

Football: Late Goals Lead To Heavy Defeat

Barclay Viewforth United 1 Bristo 5 A frustrating pair of late goals at South Gyle on Saturday 29th August turned a 5:1 defeat into the category of a “thrashing” which was unrepresentative of the match as a whole. True, the league champions had hit the woodwork twice at 2:1 and certainly merited taking the three… Continue Reading Football: Late Goals Lead To Heavy Defeat

Football: Deserved Win Over Shandon

   Good squad performance on Saturday and a deserved 4:2 win over Shandon who we’ll be meeting again soon in the group stages of the ECFA Cup. It was a particularly good performance given the number of changes which were made on a rolling subs basis.     This coming Saturday sees our delayed league opener… Continue Reading Football: Deserved Win Over Shandon
