Campbeltown Pupils 2009s played their first match of 2022 on Sunday, going down 6-0 to Campsie in Cumbernauld.

After a tight 5-3 defeat at home earlier in the season, the Pupils were looking for a positive start, however, they were caught cold in the first two minutes as the home team took the lead.

Finding their way into the match, the young Pupils pinned back Campsie with some good football, and almost equalised after Jack Green broke through, only to see the keeper produce a fine save.

The rebound almost fell kindly for Kadyn Prentice, who did well on full stretch to reach the ball, only to see it come off the inside of the post and rebound to safety.

Campsie doubled their lead after a strong period of their own pressure and, shortly after half time, made it 3-0 when a long ball fell for their excellent number 9 to finish, albeit from what looked to be a clear offside position.

The Pupils battled well in the second half, again having some good pressure but just not finding an end product.

Campsie played some excellent passing football throughout, and were rewarded with three further goals to put a slightly harsh reflection on the way the match went.

Although defeated, the Pupils should take heart from a good performance for their first game of the year, and for their efforts in making the more-than-300-mile round trip.

This Sunday, the 2009s play their first home game since October 24, versus Dumbarton Utd, with a 2pm kick-off on the all-weather pitch at Kinloch Green.
