Glens and Lang serve up a cracker

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sport -

Jamie Hamil­ton’s injury time strike claimed Glen­cairn a point at the hands of ri­vals Cam­bus­lang Rangers in an epic derby en­counter.

The 21-year-old lev­elled the game at 2-2 in front of a crowd of more than 200 at Somervell Park.

Jamie Macleod opened the scor­ing for the Lang in the first half be­fore Bob David­son got a sec­ond on 74 min­utes.

With six min­utes re­main­ing Craig McGre­gor headed Glen­cairn a life­line and winger Hamil­ton struck late on to end a pul­sat­ing match.

Glens boss Wil­lie Har­vey, who signed the young­ster from Les­ma­hagow Ju­niors, said:“He’s a right-footed player. We put him out wide to cause prob­lems be­cause we knew he‘d cut in­side.

“He’ll not be known in our di­vi­sion but a cou­ple of the Cam­bus­lang boys know him from his time at Les­ma­hagow. Ev­ery time he got the ball he was put un­der threat and peo­ple got right on top of him and never gave him a chance.

“But he just needs that one chance. He runs at peo­ple and takes them on.”
