Campbeltown Pupils YFC 1
Rutherglen Glencairn 0
GDYFL – 2005s/under-17s

Campbeltown Pupils YFC 2005s (under-17s) returned to action at a sun-kissed Kintyre Park last Saturday, playing their first game in four weeks and securing another home win against a good Rutherglen Glencairn side.

The first half was a pretty even affair with Scott Graham and Stuart Phillips going close to opening the scoring for the home side but it ended 0-0.

Ruaridh Green was introduced at half time, making a welcome return to the young Pupils side, having played only one game in five months due to injury.

This allowed Ryan Shields to move up front and the Pupils started to dominate play, with Green and Shields in particular causing problems for the Glasgow visitors down the right wing.

On the hour mark, the Ardshiel Hotel-sponsored side made the breakthrough. Green latched on to the ball at the edge of the box and struck the ball through the Rutherglen
defence to give the Pupils a 1-0 lead.

Graham, Kyle Paterson and Kyle Danson put in an excellent shift in midfield on the large Kintyre Park surface.

Danson, in particular, had an outstanding game in centre midfield.

In the final few minutes, Rutherglen hit the bar from a header and had a penalty shout but the under-17s held on to secure another three points.

Everyone at the Pupils 2005s would like to thank Campbeltown Pupils, in particular Campbell Robertson, for allowing the boys to play at Kintyre Park and to everyone who donated at the gate – £148.21 was collected for the team.

This weekend, the 2005s will again play on Saturday, rather than the usual Sunday, this time away to Rossvale Thistle 2005s.
