A Pupils winger’s broken leg curtailed an otherwise enjoyable away tie.

The tough competitive match between Neilston AFC and Campbeltown Pupils was abandoned, after an extremely fair first half, when winger Andrew Henderson – ‘Twiggy’- suffered a broken leg.

With both players fully committed, the Neilston goalkeeper collided with the incoming forward, resulting in a penalty kick to the visitors.

Unfortunately, Andrew had sustained a broken leg, and with the score standing at 2-1 to the home side, the Pupil’s scorer was former Son’s player Donald McCallum, the referee dispensed with the penalty and, indeed the rest of the match.

The abandoned fixture will be re-scheduled to later in the season.

Everyone wishes Andrew a quick and full recovery, and hopefully the ordeal won’t spoil his love of the sport.

Our thanks to Neilston for their immediate response and help with the injury.

Campbeltown Pupils host Hillington at Kintyre Park tomorrow with a 2pm kick off.
