CAMBUSLANG RANGERS looked to be on the brink of collapse at the start of 2019.

But businessman David Kerr became the hero as he stepped in to save to save his local club.

Since then they have adapted their strategy with the introduction of a youth academy set-up.

Now competing in the West of Scotland League Rangers have plenty of young talent chapping on the door of the first team.

These include names such as Scott Williamson and Campbell Gray – who became the first players in the club’s near 125-year history to graduate from the academy into the first-team.

In terms of opponents they couldn’t come much tougher for Newmains United either.

It’s seven wins from eight for the side bossed by Billy Campbell and Paul McColl this season.

Their only loss so far came against St Cadoc’s 3-2 on the opening day of the season.

United will be looking to bounce back from our own defeat at Ashfield on Saturday.

Despite a positive first-half under coach Billy McGhie the home side eventually ran out 6-2 winners.

Mark Fitzpatrick’s first for the club and another from young striker Jamie Henderson wouldn’t turn out to be enough against an emphatic Ashfield side.

Kick-off at Victoria Park is 7pm, with entry £5 for adults, £2.50 for OAPs and FREE for under 16s.
