KEEP up the good work – that’s the message for Rossvale FC after bagging another three points.

The Bishopbriggs juniors side have been on an excellent run recently – and Saturday was their third league win on the trot.

When Rossvale F.C. kicked off they were sitting behind Forth Wanderers in the league. Fast forward 90 minutes and Rossvale had triumphed 1-0 and overtaken Forth to go second in the Central District Second Division.

The winning goal came with quarter of an hour to go.

The Forth sweeper/manager decided to take a short by-kick, but Tony McDermott nipped in for Vale and hit a shot which deflected off the red-faced gaffer and looped into the top corner of the net.

Rossvale manager Ian Gray was pleased with the points.

He said: “They were the only team with a 100 per cent record. It was a decent result considering we had seven players missing.

“There wasn’t much in it. We hit the post in the first half and the bar in the second. Both teams kind of cancelled each other out.”

Rossvale currently have 12 points – having won three and drawn three, with just one loss this season.

Gray said: “We will just keep playing along, picking up the points and seeing where it takes us.”

Saturday will see Vale travel to take on Benburb in the first round of the West of Scotland Cup.

Gray said: “There’s no pressure on us. We will just play and see what happens.

“Benburb are a division above us and they are a decent side. The main priority for us is the league.”
