ACO U19s Reach Final of the South East Region Cup

Congratulation to the players, coaches and supporters of our U19s who have reached the final of the prestigious South East Region Cup, considered by many to be only second in importance to the Scottish Cup.

Unfortunately, their semi-final opponents Syngenta Juveniles withdrew from the competition thus handing ACO the semi-final tie. Commiserations to their players who must be very disappointed at not having had the opportunity to contest such an important game.

The final takes place at Dunbar on Saturday 23 May 2015 against either Whitburn JFCA or Dunipace Juniors - more information will be released nearer the time.

Well done guys - a much deserved accolade - let's bring the trophy home!


The Under 19s also made it to the final of the
Bob Bankier Trophy
with a fine 3-1 win over Hutchison Vale on 14/02/15

Ross Anderson

He's Back!
U19s Coach Ross Anderson has returned to Scotland after a spell in the USA.
Here's his story straight from the horse's mouth (or should that be the Mustang's mouth?!) ...

I was in America this year (2014) from March until November coaching soccer for UK International Soccer. They work mainly at a recreational level across the U.S. and I was based out of the Mid-West - specifically Chicago.

This was my 4th year doing this, however the first outside of the traditional 'summer camp' phase. I also got to work 'in season' based with one region for up to 9 weeks (spring and separately fall) helping to coach the kids and work with the volunteer parent coaches to improve their coaching also. I also ran coach education courses, both practical and theory, again to help the region to improve.

I did my 4th summer camp period in between seasons, travelling to 6 states for weekly camps (Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, Nebraska, Iowa & Wisconsin - the last 3 were new for me) from June until the end of August. It's an incredible experience to travel and see so much of the country (some weeks were 10+ hour drives between camps). We stay with host families every week, and I think over the 4 years I stayed with 35 families - many of whom are now close friends.

I've been to every major sport in America, 'American Football' being my favourite, followed by Ice Hockey, Basketball & of course 'Soccer'.

Excited now I am home, especially being back amongst AC Oxgangs and the very talented U19s squad with Pete and Barry. I have my assessment for C Licence in January, after which, provided I pass, I will be looking to do my UEFA B after!

Well done Ross and we'll leave the final word to ACO Coach Co-ordinator Billy McEvoy ...
"Ross is surely an inspiration to a new generation of young players/coaches
and he'll hopefully motivate those who take gap years in their education
to think about following his example.
"

Malawi Strip Donation 2014

On a recent school trip to Malawi, U19s squad member Campbell S handed over a set of AC Oxgangs strips to a group of local footballers - here's his report ...

"My school group and I played a friendly bounce game versus a local team whom we gave the strips to. The players of the opposing team were extremely happy and shocked at what they had just received. They wore the shirts with pride and as soon as they put them on they started dancing, singing together and hugging each other. They were proud to be recognised as one team now.

They were also very good at football whilst playing bare foot on the rocky dirt pitch. They passed and moved together as a team very well. My touring team won the game on penalties 5-4 after a 3-3 draw."

Well done to Campbell and his school for transporting the kit over 7,000 miles - you've clearly left a huge impression on these very happy footballers!
