Auchenharvie Academy win Ayrshire Schools Cup June 1973

Auchenharvie Academy under-14 team won the Ayrshire Schools Cup in June 1973, beating Ravenspark Academy in the final. Here is the match report :



Auchenharvie Academy under-14 team last week got revenge for their recent defeat in the final of the North Ayrshire Cup by beating old rivals Ravenspark 3-0 to win the Ayrshire Cup.

The victory by the youngsters completed a great double for the school because the under-13 team also won the Ayrshire Cup this season.

On the large pitch at Dam Park, Ayr, the superiority of the Auchenharvie side was plain to see and they were never in any trouble against a stocky Ravenspark side.

The game, however, was exciting and a real credit to the players of both sides. The main threat to the Auchenharvie defence came from Ravenspark centre, McLaughlan.

Auchenharvie also had their class players . In defence, Hume and McLaughlin were almost always in control while up front Smith and Wylie were excellent.

The three goals were scored by Wylie, Smith and Sawers who finished the match with a fine opportunist goal.

This season the team have won the Ayrshire Cup, the North Ayrshire League, reached the quarter-final of the Scottish Cup and the final of the North Ayrshire Cup.

Auchenharvie : Thomson; Reid, Taylor, McLaughlin, Hume, Latta, Sawers, Burns, Park, Smith and Wylie.

Ravenspark : Gillespie; Wallace, Cockburn, Frey, McClarnon, Walker, McKendrick, Dunlop, McLaughlan, Hodge and Stewart.
