Sports awards night is a sell out
Cambuslang and Rutherglen Sports Council will hold their annual sports performer and team of the year awards tomorrow night, Thursday.
The ceremony, which starts at 7pm, is a complete sell-out after the sports council sold all of their 150 tickets.
Reformer readers have voted for who they think deserve to be crowned a winner at the Rutherglen Town Hall.
Candidates with notable sporting achievements in 2015 were eligible in the various categories that included; senior individual of the year (male), senior individual of the year ( female), junior individual of the year ( male), junior individual of the year (female), veteran 50+ of the year, senior team of the year, junior team of the year, sporting primary school of the year and coach of the year.
Sports council chairwoman, Liz Arbuckle and community champion for Asda in Toryglen said: “We are delighted that all the categories have been filled and are pleased with the response fom the schools.
“It will be a great night. There were quite a lot of nominations and it was very difficult to choose winners as everyone is worthy of a prize but somebody needs to win.”
Glencairn are still looking for their first win at home in the league this season after six attempts as Kilsyth Rangers left The Celsius Stadium with all three points, courtesy of a brilliant goal early in the match.
With manager Willie Harvey on holiday, assistant boss Joe Pryce and coach Allan Colquhoun named an unchanged line-up after last week’s away win at Yoker, with Tony Fraser coming on to the substitutes’bench after injury to replace the injured Mark Tait.
Kilsyth took the lead in the 11th minute, and it was a strike which literally came out of nowhere. Paul McBride took possession just inside the Glencairn half, and he turned and ran at the defence before unleashing a rocket of a shot from 30 yards which fizzed past the outstretched arms of Glencairn goalkeeper JC Hutchison and into the corner of the net.
Glencairn went close to an equaliser in the 20th minute when Duffy fed the ball to Del McNab on the edge of the penalty area, and Penalty save Truesdale makes a superb stop to deny Tower Hearts.
