Sports awards night is a sell out

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sports -

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.
