Boys Brigade make club his­tory

Rutherglen Reformer - - Motors -

The 118th BB cel­e­brated win­ning the Cathkin District Ju­nior Sec­tion League for the first time in al­most 20 years.

Since 2002 the ti­tle has been won by just two other BB com­pa­nies but last week there was to be a new cham­pion.

The boys in­clude goal­keeper Ivan Jar­iod, de­fend­ers Jamie Ross and Jude Bam­ford, mid­field­ers Ewan Field, Har­ri­son Cairns and Char­lie Hurn and striker and cap­tain Roshaun Singh.

The 118th BB is based in King’s Park Church and play league games ev­ery Satur­day morn­ing at the Whit­law­burn Com­mu­nity Re­source Cen­tre.

They won the league on goal dif­fer­ence and by just two goals that were scored in the last few min­utes of the fi­nal match.

The 118th of­fi­cer in charge, Stu­art McKay said: “The league win­ning team has used just eight play­ers, none of whom have missed a sin­gle match.

“They play great foot­ball and they play with a tremen­dous at­ti­tude and sense of fair play. Our se­cond team also won third place medals in the cup. I couldn’t be prouder.

“It’s a fan­tas­tic achieve­ment for ev­ery­one in­volved. The boys have trained well and shown com­mit­ment and pas­sion ev­ery week.”

Most of the boys will now move on from the ju­nior sec­tion af­ter the sum­mer and the 118th will need to build a new team.
