Kirkcaldy YMCA v Harthill Royal

2.30pm  28 April 2018

SJFA East Region, South Division
Kirkcaldy YMCA 1 Harthill Royal 7 (att 24)

The 2017/18 season has been tough for Kirkcaldy YMCA, and their final league game ended in a predictable defeat that leaves them bottom of the table with just a single point.

Hopefully they'll be able to regroup over the summer and come back stronger for next season, and they did at least manager a goal against Harthill, only the 11th they've scored in their 26 leagues games.

The visitors were in front after just two minutes, and added three more before the hosts pulled one back. Harthill got a fifth before half time, but were restricted to just two more goals in the second period.

Credit to Kirkcaldy YMCA, they kept battling to the end and there was plenty of enthusiasm from their young team.

Denfield Park is basic for a Scottish junior football ground. It's hidden near an industrial estate, enclosed by a low mesh fence while the pitch itself is railed off and has dugouts. There's no hard standing or cover for spectators, but refreshments are available from a building that also houses the changing rooms.

Given the season they've had, getting 20 or so spectators through the gate for the final game isn't bad going, especially when across town Raith Rovers were attempting (and failing, as it turned out) to get the home win they needed to lift the Scottish League One title.
