RHU Amateurs finished a hectic opening phase of their Caledonian League campaign on a high note with a fine 3-0 win away to Cambria.

A screamer from the returning Kyran McVey and two very well taken goals from Jamie Paterson and Drew McCann earned Gordon Brodie’s men a comfortable, and well-deserved, win over the Strathclyde University graduates’ team at Stepps Playing Fields.

The result completed a busy spell of six games in the first two and a half weeks of the season for the club’s ‘Caley’ squad, with three wins, two defeats and a draw leaving Rhu in sixth place in what’s expected to be a hugely competitive First Division campaign.

Next up for Rhu - who had no fixture last Saturday, giving Brodie a welcome chance to allow his players to draw breath and get over any injury niggles - is a home game against old friends and Argyll and Bute rivals Rothesay Brandane this Saturday, September 9.

The Bute club have made an impressive start to their own league campaign - albeit with fewer games played than Rhu, since their island home means they can't play midweek fixtures - with no fewer than 18 goals scored in the three league matches they've played so far.

Kick-off at Ardenconnel Park is at the slightly earlier than usual time of 1pm.

Meanwhile, Rhu Colts continued their positive start to the Glasgow Colleges FA season with a 5-3 win at home to Croftpark on Saturday morning, with Walker (2), Milton (2) and Godwin the men on target to give the Colts a tally of 12 points from their opening seven league fixtures.

Jamie Kjorstad’s squad are back on the road this Saturday, September 9 when they travel to Glasgow to face River Nevis.
