HELENSBURGH FC's Spring Cup campaign regained its momentum in style as the local side chalked up a 5-0 win away to first division Calderglen.

Having been below par in their previous match, a 2-2 draw at home to Westerlands, Helensburgh controlled long spells of a match which was dominated by a very strong wind.

And the visitors took the lead after just five minutes when Karl Johansson's delightful pass found David Sinclair, who turned the ball into Brooks Tadlock's path for the opening goal.

Burgh nearly made it two 10 minutes later, but Tadlock was rudely brought to the ground by his marker when he looked odds on to go through on goal, and although a free kick was awarded, no card was issued.

With the wind at their backs, Calderglen tried to push forward, but any danger was snuffed out by the Helensburgh defence and hard-working midfield.

And with the wind in their favour in the second half, Helensburgh well and truly put Calderglen to the sword.

Johansson gave the visitors their second from a free kick which had been awarded after a crude tackle on Tadlock, which put the striker out of action, and Caleb Phipps made it three when he outfoxed the home side's defence to run through and slip the ball round the keeper.

Helensburgh kept up the pressure on their hosts and added a fourth when skipper Danny Johns headed home from a corner, and the scoring was completed by right-back David Wilkie, who latched on to a cute cut back by Martin to lash the ball past the keeper.
