Under 15's Win Final
The U15 football team won their Cup final yesterday 2-1 against Cumnock. Although there was not much between the teams in the first half, they found themselves 1-0 down at half time.
Two quick second half goals from Liam Wallace and Sam Gray turned the game around as Prestwick had the majority of the possession in the second half. Steven Clark and Logan Dunlop were once again solid at the back, winning everything in a physically contested match.
Thank you to everyone who came and supported the team.
