CAMPSIE Black Watch continued their impressive form with more victories.

Campsie Black Watch....................4

Dumbarton Accies ......................1

WATCH opened their midweek programme with an impressive win against Dumbarton Accies at Station Road last Monday in a league game.

Blackies went ahead in the 15th minute with Whiteford down the left to Boal, onto McCluskey whose pass found Woodlock, who beat keeper Harkness from close in.

The visitors were strong and making it difficult for Watch, especially with their attacks, but found their match in Reid and his defence until the 20th minute when they opened the scoring when Cameron finished off a fine Pritchard cross.

The game was fast and furious and two minutes later Watch went 2-1 in front with a superbly taken goal again by Woodlock when a Davis pass saw the striker score from a narrow angle that gave the keeper no chance.

Blackies finished the fitter side and Darroch took a Forrest corner at the near post and walloped the ball into the net in the 71st minute.

McGeough made it 4-1 in the 88th minute heading past keeper Cameron after clever play from Davis and Clarke.

This was a fine win for Watch in another tough game.

Watch: M Storey, A Graham, C Reid, S Davis, W Whiteford, A Forrest, P McGeough, P Woodlock, A Culbard, J Boal, J McCluskey, C McDade, J Darroch, G Watt, S Lochhead, C Duff, M Clarke.

Last Wednesday at Allendale, Watch defeated Steins Thistle 3-2 in a league game. In heavy conditions both sides were immense in a game that was played at top speed and the discipline of both sides was first class.

Watch scorers were C Reid, P Woodlock and J Boal.

Glasgow Amateurs......................1

Campsie Black Watch...................2

Watch finished off their week with a 2-1 win, in doing so they had nine points to add to their tally.

In this league game played at Twechar a tired Watch team had to wait until the 90th minute to get the winner.

The Amateurs went ahead in the 41st minute.

The equaliser came in the 57th minute and it was a tremendous strike from 30 yards from left back Steve Davis that gave Blackies a chance.

From then to the end Watch were giving everything they had to get a winner and a 90th minute goal from Paul Woodlock gave them victory.

Watch play Dumbarton Accies away on Thursday night in a league game. On Saturday they are away to Drumchapel United in another league game.

Tote numbers for Saturday were 44 and 46. There was no winner, £300 next week.

Campsie Black Watch under-19s..........0

Bonnyton Thistle.......................5

A BIG crowd witnessed Campsie Black Watch under 19s suffer their first defeat of the season at Station Road on Saturday. This was the poorest performance from any Campsie Black Watch under 19 team. However, all credit to Bonnyton, they came to Campsie to win and they turned the home team over.

From the first whistle the Ayrshire men had Campsie on the back foot. They had Darroch’s goal at their mercy and on the 12th minute a throw in from the left was met by Mitchell. His shot hit the underside of the bar and the ball broke to Armour, who headed the ball into the net.

Three minutes later the visitors went two up, another gift for Bonnyton. Haddow and McDowall lost out to Watt on the left, the winger cut back a low cross for Mitchell to side foot the ball into the net.

Things got worse for Campsie on the half hour mark when Bonnyton ripped through the Campsie midfield and striker Mitchell raced in on goal. Darroch got down to try and intercept the ball only to foul the player, the referee pointed to the spot. Armour placed the ball and hammered home to make it 3-0.

After the break Campsie couldn’t get into the pace of the game that was set by Bonnyton. On the hour mark the Ayrshire men went four up, Campsie’s poor play on the right was intercepted by Burgh and the winger raced away into the box, he had time to pick out Armour to side foot the ball home from 18 yards.

With the game ready to end Bonnyton got themselves another penalty from a careless challenge in the box from McLoone. Armour stepped up and hit an unstoppable shot past Darroch.

This was a heartless performance from Campsie Black Watch, they deserved nothing out of this game, if the players want to win this league they have to do a lot better.

Campsie Black Watch will play Drumchapel United at the Donald Dewar Centre tonight (Wednesday), 6.30pm kick off.
