RHU Amateurs' Caledonian League squad have launched an appeal for new players as thoughts turn towards their preparations for the 2024-25 campaign.

Having finished in seventh place in the First Division in the season just finished, manager Gordon Brodie and his coaches are aiming higher next time around.

And with four big names from amateur football in the west of Scotland set to join the Caledonian AFA set-up next season - Campsie Minerva, Bannockburn, Gartcosh and Dumbarton's own St Patrick's FP - the coaching team are hoping that new blood can help them meet what's expected to be a big challenge head-on.

A club spokesperson said: "We're actively looking to strengthen our squad for the new season as we once again compete in what will be one of the strongest amateur leagues around.

"We offer our own park and top class facilities as well as having numerous sponsors on hand to support the players with brand new kit for the season."

Anyone interested in joining the Rhu set-up for 2024-25 can find out more by sending a message to the 'Rhu Amateurfc' page on Facebook.

Pre-season training will begin on Thursday, July 4.

Meanwhile, although the action off the pitch may be over for another season, Rhu will take one last look back at their achievements during 2023-24 at their annual player of the year awards and sportsman's dinner this weekend.

The event, at the Rosslea Hall Hotel in Rhu this Friday, May 31, will feature former Scotland international Kevin Kyle, star of the popular Open Goal podcast, who has stepped in as a guest speaker, alongside John Gahagan, after ex Grade One referee Bobby Tait had to withdraw due to ill health.

Friday night's event starts at 7pm.
