RHU Amateurs’ Caledonian League team bounced back from a midweek humbling to pick up four points out of six from their latest two fixtures - though Gordon Brodie's men were left thinking it could and perhaps should have been more.

Having been well beaten 5-1 by Westerlands on August 16, Rhu were desperate to make amends at home to Stirling University on Saturday - and after a slow start they controlled the rest of the match and should have won by a bigger margin, though Jamie Paterson’s double and goals from Calum Dodds and Lewis Campbell were more than enough to see off Stirling by a 4-1 margin.

And Brodie's squad followed up that home win with a battling 2-2 draw in their first away match of the campaign, against Glasgow University at Garscube on Wednesday night.

Despite playing most of the second half with 10 men, though, it was a case of two points dropped rather than one gained for Rhu, with the Glasgow students netting an equaliser late on after goals by Robert Caldwell and a screamer from Danny Johns had put the visitors within a few minutes of victory.

This Saturday, August 26, Rhu's Caledonian League squad head for Stirlingshire to face Cambusbarron Rovers (KO 2pm), before a trip to Stepps to take on Cambria on Wednesday, August 30, with the latter game getting under way at 6.30pm.

Meanwhile, Rhu Colts’ Glasgow Colleges FA campaign continued with back-to-back league and cup fixtures against Busby.

Rhu defeated the East Renfrewshire side 4-2 at home in the league on Saturday morning, with two goals from Dale Walker and one apiece from McConnell and Sinclair

But it was a different story at Williamwood High School on Monday night, in a tie brought forward from Wednesday, with a much-changed Rhu squad falling to a 4-1 defeat against a youthful and energetic Busby team in the first round of the Jim Harvey Cup.

Details of Rhu Colts’ fixture for this Saturday, August 26, had yet to be revealed as this article was published.
