Rhu’s Saturday morning team stormed to a 3-0 victory at Glasgow Ansar at Ardenconnel in the GCFA Division 1 clash on Saturday, February 11.

With a battling draw against third placed Bishopton the previous week, the lads went into the game with a tad more confidence against an Ansar team which had won the previous encounter between the teams with some ease.

However the lads took the game to the Glasgow side and pushed them on to the back foot, with Walker giving their defence an uncomfortable afternoon.

For the first 30 minutes it was a well contested affair as both teams struggled in the heavy surface but the signs that the home team were beginning to take control were beginning to show.

Thomas Welsh should have scored from close range after a great cross from Maule but the ball got caught under his foot and he could only shuffle the ball into the keeper's hands.

However, pressure was building and Rhu took the lead five minutes before the break. Maule's corner was met at the back post by David Sinclair and he directed the ball into the path of Dale Walker for the big striker to continue his scoring run.

With confidence in full flow, the second half was controlled by the home side.

McConnell thought he had made it two, only for the referee to chalk it off however the two goal lead was established with 50 minutes gone. Good work by Thompson on the right wing found Iain Cameron at the back of the penalty area, the midfielder took a touch and fired the ball past the keeper.

Now in complete control of the game, the boys continued to threaten and with ten minutes to go, Walker wrapped up the scoring with a well taken toe poke which whizzed past the keeper.

Manager Jamie Kjordstad was full of praise for his team and said: "It has taken them a while to find their feet in the league but they have worked really hard at training and now we are seeing the benefits from it.

"The other coaches, Paul McColl and Rob Dawson, along with input from Ali Maule, deserve plenty of praise as well as they put together the sessions that have pushed the boys on and just before the turn of the year, we asked Sam Gemmell to come on board which is great for us due to the benefit of his experience at this level.

"The hard work is now paying off and we hope it continues through to the season end."

Squad: Lewis, Kjordstad, Sinclair, Brown, Black, Maule, Cameron, Welsh, Dawson, McConnell, Walker, Thompson, Burch, Aitken, Moy, Caldow.
