Helensburgh’s campaign in the Greater Glasgow Premier AFL’s Spring Cup spluttered to a disappointing end after a lacklustre 1-0 defeat at home to Jordanhill on Monday night.

With no chance of progressing to the next round, the opportunity to give fringe players a game was seized, but it was the visitors who dominated most of the game, though they were unable to trouble Helensburgh keeper Liam Hanson.

The visitors’ winner had a bit of luck to it after a break down the left and a shot on goal which deflected off Geraint Meader and wrong-footed Hanson in goal.

The closest the home side came during a disappointing display was Allan’s attempted lob which was a couple of feet off target.

To round off a bad night, left back Stuart Bailey picked up a red card for two bookable offences.

Manager Sam Gemmell said: “One to forget to be honest, as it’s the poorest we have played for a few weeks.

“Hopefully it can be put behind us quickly as we face important league fixtures in the next month.

“We have picked up some bad injuries to important players at the wrong time of the season so it’s important that we can squeeze as much out the squad as possible”
