Campbeltown Pupils 2 v 1 Clydebank College
The Pupils grabbed all three points in this tough league match against the men from West Dunbartonshire after coming from behind.
The home side found themselves 1-0 down in the first five minutes but quickly calmed themselves to enjoy the majority of play against a very physical Clydebank side. The Pupils drew level after 30 minutes when Keith Mitchell sent a inch perfect cross from the left in to the box to be met by Gary Grumoli in the air as the young striker pounced to out leap the visitor's defence and send a looping jeader over the Bankies keeper.
Although the Pupils enjoyed the lion's share of the game they couldn't put their chances away for the remainder of the half or indeed the start of the half. Tempers started to flair in the match as the tackles flew in and after a foul on the Pupils McKinven players got involved and none more than the Clydebank goalkeeper who seemed to want to be involved in everything all day and came rushing off his line to dispute the decision with the referee, the Pupils players and about anyone without a CLydebank top on! However, it was to prove a costly mistake as he ran back to his goal the quick thinking left back, Keith Gillespie, sent another perfect strike from just short of the half way line over the dispairing keeper and into the net much to the delight of the home team and support. If ever there was a lesson about not getting involved in anything this was it as the home side held out to gain a valuable three points in their push for promotion.
