TREBLE TOPS FOR CAMBUSLANG FC
Youngsters enjoy an unparalleled year of glory
A Cambuslang boys football team have secured a historic treble in their most successful season ever.
The Cambuslang Football Club 2000 team play in Lanarkshire Division A, the top division in their age bracket.
The team currently play their home matches at the Jock Stein Football Centre in Hamilton, but are comprised of boys from Cambuslang.
Their successful campaign started last August, when they won the Land O’Burns Football Tournament, beating Moorlands 1-0 at Cumnock in Ayrshire.
They also secured the league championship by one point, and Declan Coleman was top scorer with 23 goals.
And they also won the Central Scotland Regional Cup, beating East Kilbride Gold Football Club 2-1 in the final at Stenhousemuir’s ground in June.
The team are one of the most successful in the country, and many of their players have gone on to sign pro youth contracts.
Manager Stephen Fulton said: “it’s a massive achievement. This is the second time we’ve won the league and Central Scotland Regional Cup, but getting the treble is terrific. Winning the league is in itself a great achievement, but all of our players and dedicated and give it their all. To win the cups as well is really something to be proud of.
“The Central Scotland Regional Cup is made up of teams from all over Scotland, so it is a big deal to win that. We have a great group of players here. We play in the top league and we’re hoping to win it again next year.”
Cambuslang Football Club was formed in 2011. They presently have age groups at 2000, 2004, 2005 and 2006 level. On their website, their ethos is: “to offer a secure environment for kids to express themselves on and of the field, honour and integrity are core values within the club.”
