Campbeltown Pupils YFC 2005s (under-17s) celebrated the end of the football season in style at their prize-giving ceremony.

The 2005s enjoyed a great season in the Glasgow and District Youth Football League, finishing in third place.

A good turnout of players, family, friends and supporters attended the prize-giving presentation in Peninver Village Hall last Friday evening, where the winners of numerous awards were revealed.

The prize for goal of the season was shared by Calum Ellis (against Glasgow Athletic), Scott Graham (against Ashfield Juniors) and Stuart Phillips (against Rutherglen).

The Jimmy Lay Memorial Shield for player of the season went to Ryan Shields who has played in every single game of 11-a-side football since the 2005s started 11-a-sides back in 2017.

The prize for save of the season went to Lorne Paterson (against Rutherglen).

Having netted an amazing 45 goals, Calum Ellis picked up the top goal-scorer award.

The referees’ player of the year award, as chosen by match officials, went to Calum Ellis.

The players’ player of the year prize was awarded to Ryan Harding, who joined the 2005s at the under-13s stage and travels from Lochgilphead for training.

The Duncan MacDougall (TT) Memorial Shield for club player of the year was awarded to the whole team, with coaches finding it impossible to pick any individual for the award as every single player made a massive contribution throughout the season.

During the presentation, parents Tracy Brogan, Helen Phillips, Susan McMillan, Steven Dott and Gareth Parker were acknowledged for their efforts of help during the season.

The players themselves awarded coaches Stuart Crossan and Peter McCallum and manager David Paterson gifts acknowledging their efforts throughout the season.

A Pupils 2005s spokesperson said: ‘Special thanks to Campbeltown and District Juvenile Football Association for its continued support of the 2005s this season, South Kintyre Sports Council for its kind donation towards the presentation, Kenny Craig for photos, South Kintyre Development Trust for the speaker, Ross Souden for the flag, parents, family and friends for all their support and the Ardshiel Hotel and Kintyre Larder for their sponsorship support over the years too – much appreciated.’
