NETTING an incredible 63 goals in 30 games is the stuff of dreams, but Steven Aitken has made it a reality.
The Campsie Black Watch under-19s striker scored in almost every single league and cup match – including six goals in one game . . . twice.
Campsie’s very own Lionel Messi is stepping up to Campsie Black Watch’s under-21 team for next season’s campaign.
The modest former Lenzie Academy pupil (18) said: “It really is down to my teammates, I couldn’t do it without them.
“It’s been a fantastic season. I’ve always scored goals, but never more than 40 in a single season.”
Steven’s manager Allan Differ found himself £50 out of pocket after promising the striker at the start of the season he’d give him the cash if he bagged 50 goals.
Steven, a student at Strathclyde University, said: “I got two goals at Goldenhill to reach my 50 and they’re my favourites.
“The first was a cross in and I just placed it past the keeper, but the second for the 50 was at an angle and it was a great feeling when that went in.”
Steven has easily blitzed Campsie Black Watch’s previous goalscoring record of 46 goals in one season.
Manager Allan Differ said: “I don’t know if it’s a league record but it’s certainly a club record.
“His record is absolutely brilliant and the 21s have got a very good player. Steven’s a natural.
“He’s got so much talent – his burst of speed is incredible, he’s able to turn defenders and he can play with his back to goal which is very hard to do.
“He’s two-footed and scores goals from everywhere.”
