Campbeltown Pupils 2005s 10

Ardencaple 2005s 2

Dunbartonshire Football Development League – 2005s (Under 13s)

Campbeltown Pupils Youth 2005s returned to winning ways on Sunday with a convincing win over Ardencaple.

Following a 6-2 away defeat the week before to Summerston BC, the Kintyre boys were keen to return to their early season form.

From the start the Ardshiel hotel-sponsored side looked the hungrier of the two and scored within 10 minutes, when Ryan Harding knocked a volley home following good work on the right by Calum McAllister and Lorne Paterson.

Forward Calum Ellis was a handful for the Ardencaple defence. His efforts were rewarded with a fine individual dribble and finish.

He added his second beating the off-side trap to race onto goal and not long after, completed his fourth hat-trick of the season.

Cameron McMillan scored his first goal of the season. Right-back Michael Campbell played McAllister in on the right wing and the youngster beat his marker to whip in a great cross which McMillan volleyed home.

Paterson and Owen Reid joined the scoring with fine goals from the two centre-midfielders.

The Helensburgh youngsters never gave up and enjoyed a better second half scoring two of the five goals.

Lorne Paterson scored his second of the day with a fine strike from 20 yards.

Ardencaple pulled one back after fine play down the left.

Harding scored his second of the day with the Pupils scoring wrapped up by Ryan Shields driving through the Ardencaple defence.

The away side never gave up and scored the final goal of the game – a long range effort that left Pupils captain Scott Oman with no chance in goal.

The 2005s are half way through their league season, having played nine games, winning seven and losing two.

The youngsters have a free Sunday this weekend before travelling to Glasgow to play Broomhill SC in their league tie on Sunday December 3.
