Campbeltown Pupils 2009 returned to league duty last week, going down 3-1 away to Glasgow Athletic Blacks in a close encounter.

The first half started a very even affair, with both teams playing some good football but neither really threatening to make the breakthrough.

Glasgow Athletic took the lead midway through the half, with a break down the left resulting in a smart finish, before doubling their lead 10 minutes before half-time.

The young Pupils side started the second half on the front foot, and were rewarded soon after the break when Cunningham picked the ball up in midfield and fired a brilliant 30-yard strike into the roof of the net.

The second half continued much like the first, an even encounter with both teams going for the win, and it was the home team that made the decisive move with a curling 20 yarder to make the score 3-1.

The Pupils almost made it a grandstand finish, when Johnston’s pass picked put Graham through on goal, but his first time effort was well saved by the home goalkeeper.

The Pupils now have a break for the festive season and will resume to league duty on January 9, with another away journey to Campsie.
