Eriskay Vs North Uist United (Summer Cup) – Match Report

Eriskay 7 North Uist United 0

I’m going to keep this one brief as there aren’t many positives to speak of. We started off slowly in the game which seems to be a common theme at the minute with Eriskay two up in a matter of minutes. We had odd moments of decent play in the first half but Eriskay were dominant and managed to get another two goals before half time making it 0-4 at the break.

We certainly improved slightly second half with a change in system and personnel, however we were still well short of the level that is required. With the score at 0-6 things went from bad to worse when Mark MacInnes was sent off for a last man challenge. Eriskay actually scored from the resulting free kick which completed the rout.

MOTM: Nobody gets the award this week as no one stood out and our good moments were few and far between. An honourable mention for Alexander MacDonald who came on at half time and performed well on the right side of a back three and also Kieran MacIsaac who came on for the last 30 mins and made a good account of himself. The only positive we can take from this game is the youngsters that played and gained some valuable minutes and experience.

Our next game is on Tuesday 7th June Vs Iochdar Saints in the summer cup at 7pm in Paible. Hope to see another good turnout for our last home game for a while.

Many thanks for your valued support
