Scottish Amateur Football News Exclusive
Ross Kearns has revealed his frustration over the latest 16 day Scottish Government restrictions to hit non-professional football – including the SSMAFL Chairmen’s Cup final at the home of Cambuslang Rangers this Saturday (12 noon).
Kearns bagged a double for Port Glasgow United FC in their 3-1 semi- final victory last weekend, while potential opponents Shawbridge AFC were crushing Stanley Athletic 8-0.
In another great exclusive Ross said: “Absolutely gutted, Tom. “Our guys loved the write-up @AmmyFitbaNews on our Semi-Final result the other day. The squad was looking forward to the test and occasion. Buzzing as it was the club’s first Final.
“I can’t believe football has been taken away again. Every time we move forward and follow the guidelines, they move the goalposts. It is never ending.”
Kearns has racked up experience in junior football with the likes of Greenock, Maryhill, Ardrossan, and Port Glasgow before joining United last October.
Ross revealed “The club has been going for 5 years. We normally play home games at Parklea, and train at the new Port Glasgow High School Campus.”
“We have been striving to make sure we are in the picture for trophies and league titles as well as getting great support from local businesses. We have new training gear, tracksuits and two new strips, so the club is really heading in the right direction. We hope to keep building on what would have been early season momentum.”
“On behalf of the club, can I also say we can’t thank local businesses and the community backing enough.”
United’s route to the final has also included wins over Gleniffer (5-0) and Real McCoy (5-4),
