Rhu welcomed Callander Thistle to Hermitage Academy on Saturday, March 25 and put on a very impressive performance in their latest Caledonian League First Division match as it scored seven goals without reply.

The game started quite evenly, with Callander causing the home defence some problems and the Rhu players struggling to get into any kind of rhythm.

That was until the 25th minute, when after some good work in the middle of the park, Luke Evans was on hand to slam the ball into the net to give the home side the advantage.

It was soon 2-0 when Rhu number nine Ryan Jones slotted past the Thistle keeper to start his scoring for the day.

Rhu started to gain in confidence and started to play the football the home fans have been used to seeing throughout the season and created more and more chances as the game moved towards half-time.

Just before the end of the half Rhu were dealt a massive blow as captain Lewis Campbell dislocated his shoulder after a hard challenge in the corner and headed straight to hospital. Everyone at the club wishes him a speedy recovery.

The second half started the way the first half ended, with Rhu having the majority of possession and playing some great football, cutting open the away defence with ease. Jones then pounced for his second of the game and soon afterwards, Jones completed a highly impressive hat trick with another clinical finish.

Jones was a constant threat the whole afternoon, running the Thistle defence ragged and they will be happy not to face him again this season.

The returning Sean Cameron then showed the home fans what they’ve been missing with a great performance after a long lay-off with injury.

After another trademark run he rolled the ball into the highly impressive Callum Dods who passed the ball into the net for his first of the game. Dods then got his second of the game with another clinical finish to give the away keeper no chance.

Rhu weren’t finished and after another great team move Steve Ledjon got his first ever goal for the Rhu when he smashed the ball into the net to complete the scoring 7-0 to the boys from Ardenconnel.

A spokesperson for Rhu said: “This was a highly impressive team performance and the way the boys played football from the back to the front was a joy to watch.

“This is the kind of performance that the management know this team can put in and it gives us great encouragement as we move into the business end of the season.”
