JUBILANT Campsie Black Watch players lifted their club’s 31st league championship on Saturday.

Watch still have a game to play - against Harmony Row this Saturday - but slip-ups by their rivals last week gifted them the trophy without having to kick a ball.

It was a hugely satisfying title for Allan Differ in his first season at the helm of the record-breaking club.

Watch supremo Gerry Marley, in his 50th year at the club, said the win was all the sweeter because his side had to battle for it.

He told the Herald: “For years and years we would take the league title and not think much of it because our holy grail was always the Scottish Cup.

“Now that’s no longer the case and I think everybody agrees it has been the toughest year ever.

“Usually you have two teams fighting it out for the title but this year several teams have been in with a real shot.”
