Headline Makers Revisited – Drumchapel Amateur Colts (2013/14 Season)

Scottish Amateur Football News Chief Writer Tom Scott takes a midweek look at the remarkable run of success for Drumchapel Amateurs Colts in the Scottish Amateur Football League ….Winning three consecutive championships.

Season 2013- 2014 incredibly signalled the start, when Colts held off an amazing challenge from Ferguslie Star in Division 1B. Both clubs scored over 100 goals – Star actually had a better goal difference – but Drumchapel took the plaudits thanks to 18 wins over 20 games.

A year later, the Premier 2 trophy was heading back to their silverware cabinet, when the Amateurs finished ten points ahead of runners-up Easthall Star.

Undaunted, Drumchapel strode towards the Championship Treble and the SAFL Premier 1. Ferguslie and Motherwell Thistle were never far away from the top-three frame, but again the title champagne was uncorked!

Over those 3 seasons, Drumchapel Amateurs Colts played a total of 62 league fixtures. They recorded 51 wins, 3 draws and sustained 8 defeats.

No fewer than 261 goals were scored for the loss of 98. It is worth noting that the now-defunct Bridgewater AFC, were crowned Division 1B Champions in 2014- 2015 (scoring 101 goals), and the following season won a Premier 2 title by virtue of 20 straight wins – netting 90 goals.
