RHU Amateurs kicked off their Caledonian League campaign in style this week with back-to-back home wins, defeating Rothesay Brandane 4-1 and Westerlands 5-2.

Against Rothesay on Saturday, on a pitch which survived the week’s heavy rain, Rhu weren’t bogged down at all in the opening stages as they opened the scoring just three minutes in with only their second attack, when Kyle Sharkey’s powerful cross was turned into his own net by a Rothesay defender.

Rhu added a second around the 10 minute mark as a flick on from captain Gordon Brodie, after a Stilwell corner, was parried up in the air and big Callum Smith towered over the opponents to nod home a second.

Rothesay kept plugging away and were through on goal when the striker fluffed his lines with a one on one and missed the target.

Rhu added a third 25 minutes in when a through ball to Smith left the defender with no choice but to slide in and foul him, and Sharkey stepped up to slot home the third from the penalty spot.

Stillwell was again key in setting up the fourth, taking the ball past a few defenders before setting up Smith for his second of the day.

Rothesay’s keeper made good saves from Smith, Maule and Toms to keep the score down, while Sharkey hit the bar late in the first half, before the visitors pulled one back with a penalty on the stroke of half time.

Both teams attacked throughout the second half, but good, solid defending from Cameron, Brodie and Dickson stopped Rothesay making any further inroads into the deficit, while Gary McKell struck the crossbar with a 30-yard volley before having a goal ruled out for offside, despite looking onside to the home support.

Dickson’s afternoon ended on a low note when he was shown a second yellow card late on for an incident during a pause in play, but it was too late to have an impact on the scoreline as Rhu secured the three points and second place in the league table.

And the team's fine start to the campaign continued on Wednesday night with another convincing win, again in challenging conditions.

Callum Smith hit another double in the 5-2 win at home to Westerlands, with Kyle Sharkey, Adam Sharkey and Mark Toms also finding the net.

Rhu's run of home league matches continues on Saturday, August 17 when Giffnock North visit Ardenconnel Park.
