A Sergio Alba goal ten minutes from time was enough to sink Brook Street in a bad tempered Tayside derby match against The Disorders. 

Brook Street had been down to ten men from the fifty-sixth minute when Igor Bulatov was controversially ordered off, but by the end of the match, the home team were down to nine men, Kostas Fournarakos and Abdeen Dabdoub having been given their marching orders.

As a result of one of Fournarakos’s challenges, Brook Street will have to do without the services of Emilio Juárez for at least a week.

“It was an utterly shocking challenge and merited a straight red”, said Eskild afterwards. “When you see what Igor Bulatov was ordered off for, then I don’t know why this challenge only got a yellow”.

“OK, Igor shouldn’t have reacted, but their player made a total meal of it. It was ridiculous really”.

He added, “I think we deserved a point, so there’s no doubt I feel aggrieved about this defeat. We’ll just regroup and be ready to face Medchester United next weekend”.


The club confirmed this morning that on Wednesday, we will host an international friendly match against the current leaders of Honduras Series II.3, Night Drunks F.C., with the kick-off at 10:30 BST.

Al MacHarold was Sheargoal Village’s tormentor-in-chief in today’s friendly, netting four goals as Brook Street romped to an 8-0 win.

The Welsh Division IV side never stood a chance as the Brook Street quickly adapted to the conditions and stormed to a 2-0 lead with only three minutes on the clock.

Humberto Andrade opened the scoring after only two minutes, and Al MacHarold hit home the first of his four goals a minute later.

MacHarold fired home his second after thirty-six minutes, and two minutes later Tom MacKenzie hit his first goal for the senior side.

Less than sixty seconds later, Kyle Fair made it 5-0 to completely kill off the game before half-time.

Brook Street weren’t finished though, and Al MacHarold completed his hattrick nine minutes after the break. However the fans had to wait nineteen minutes before Fons Consheim fired home number seven.

Six minutes later and Al MacHarold cooly rounded the visiting keeper to complete the scoring.

“We played really well today”, said the goal hero afterwards. “We adapted to the conditions quickly and had hit them hard before they knew what was going on. There was no way back for them after that”.

Eskild agreed saying, “Scoring the two goals so soon after kick-off killed the game, but to be fair, we kept looking for more goals after that.

He continued, “It would’ve been easy to sit back but to the players’ credit, they kept going forward, and the result is there for all to see.

I was particularly pleased for Tom MacKenzie who got his first goal for the seniors since stepping up from the Under-19s”.

Brook Street fought back from 0-2 down to eventually draw 3-3 against FC Zippy in our league match at New Home Park yesterday.

Zippy had raced into an early lead through goals from Christopher Robson and Simon Artiouchine, but Brook Street pulled it back to 2-2 at half time courtesy of goals from Andy Huatala and Marcus Lövman.

David Zieleźnik fired Brook Street into an unlikely lead ten minutes after the break, but Kerr MacCombich equalised twelve minutes from time to ensure a share of the spoils.

Afterwards, Eskild Bøgholm said, “We showed great character to come back from two-down to take the lead, but although we conceded the equaliser, we’ve got to be happy with the point”.

He continued, “What I’m not happy with though is the fact we gave them a two goal start. We’ve got to tighten up at the back and stop gifting goals as lapses in concentration this season have cost us dear”.

After struggling to find the net in the past few games, Brook Street got back on the goal trail last night in north-west Wales with a 6-2 win over Sheargoal Village.

Speaking on the team’s return to New Home Park this afternoon, coach Eskild Bøgholm, who himself was a goalscorer last night, took time to speak to the official website.

“We’re really pleased with our performance last night, although it was disappointing to concede two goals towards the end of the game.

“Our midfield took control early on which allowed us to boss the game, and we were really clinical in front of goal, something we’ve been lacking of late.

“We’ve now got to produce this type of performance in the league.”

The coach went on to say, “It’s a nice change to play as close to home as north Wales so that haven’t spent more than a day traveling. The players will all be fully rested and I’ll have almost a full squad to pick from for Saturday’s game.

This evening, it was announced that Brook Street will face Welsh side Sheargoal Village in the first leg of a double header on Tuesday night. Kick-off is at 20:30 BST and the return leg will take place at NHP a week on Wednesday.

Lords 11 took maximum points against Brook Street this afternoon, with goals from Kevin Otterburn and Airth MacHendrie either side of half-time giving the home side a 2-0 win.

“Some basic errors were made at the back today and we totally failed to break them down ”, said Eskild afterwards. “We simply can’t afford to be so generous to our opponents and expect to get anything from the game”.

“We’ve got some big matches coming up so we have to sort this out fast”, he continued. “We were lucky this week that other results went in our favour, but we shouldn’t have to rely on other sides doing us a favour”.

The first of those matches sees FC Zippy, a side Brook Street have never defeated, visit NHP next weekend.

The scoreline may suggest a dull game, but yesterday’s 0-0 draw with Georgian side Barca Tblisi was far from a poor match.

Despite having the bulk of the play and creating a number of chances, Brook Street were unable to break down the well organised visitors’ defence.

However, Eskild was far from disappointed with the result saying, “Sure, it would have been good to get a win, but there were a lot of positives to take from the game”.

The match saw Ville Yrjölä make his debut for the club, and keeping a clean sheet will have done his chances of playing in Saturday’s match no harm.

“Ville looked impressive when he was called into action and commanded his box well”, said the coach, who added, “He’s young and it’s early days, but I’m confident we’ve got ourselves a real bargain”.

Brook Street moved swiftly to solve the current goalkeeping crisis by signing Finnish keeper Ville Yrjölä early yesterday morning from Portuguese side ManUnited Açores.

The 19 year-old goes straight into the squad for Wednesday’s friendly match at New Home Park against Barca Tblisi.

There was however some good news tonight when it was confirmed that Emilio Juárez’s injury is not as bad as first expected, and he is back in training.

The club tonight announced that Jukka Pöllänen and František Teslík have been sold for a combined transfer fee of just under £2 million.

Pöllänen leaves to join Portuguese side Sporting de Fanhais while Teslík will be plying his trade in Turkey with Revned.

We wish both players the best of luck in their careers with their new clubs.
