IT was a massive day for one Garnock Valley football side last week - as KCFC Star girls played their first ever 11-a-side fixture.

And the girls got to play in a venue fitting of the occasion, as Kilbirnie Ladeside allowed them to play the match on Valefield Park.

On the pitch, the youngsters put on a show, notching an impressive 7-0 victory against Holytown Colts.

The game started out edgy, with both teams finding their feet before Zoe Hirst Amos scored a “cracking lob” to break the deadlock.

Only a few minutes later saw KCFC doubled their lead through a well worked team goal which was finished by Kara Wotherspoon.

Holytown grew into the game a bit before half time, but the Kilbirnie defence and goalkeeper stood strong.

The second half saw Holytown continue to fight back, but eventually Kilbirnie’s experience as a team showed and they began to pull away.

An Olivia Nelson hat-trick, a second goal for Kara Wotherspoon and a Ellie Harrison strike handed them the 7-0 win.

Wotherspoon picked up the player-of-the-match award, though KCFC Star head coach Ryan Apps was delighted with everyone.

He said: “The girls were tremendous up against a well drilled Holytown. They showed everything we’ve worked so hard on all year in training and matches as we prepare ourselves for the transition to 11-a-side.

“We can’t thank Kilbirnie Ladeside enough for letting us play the game at Valefield, the girls were absolutely buzzing and the club were brilliant with them even giving the girls a match day gift and a cherished memory for the team.”
