We Were The Champions – Easthall Star FC (Season 2012-2013)

Easthall Star FC Manager Danny Cameron experienced highs and lows in their first-ever Scottish Amateur Football League season, writes Tom Scott.

The campaign opened with Goldenhill AFC, who would eventually finish Division 1 B runners-up, thumping Inverkip Thistle 10-1 on August 11th,2012.

Just over 10 days later, Goldenhill defeated the visiting Easthall squad 4-1, but the Glasgow East End club quickly put that disappointment to the side, went on a winning run and when the return fixture arrived on November 24th, rattled home a 9-2 scoreline!

There would be very few slip-ups from either camp as the season gathered pace – although the heart of Danny Cameron would have skipped a few beats in their penultimate domestic fixture at 3rd -top Jamestown, where the homesters led 4-2 late on.

Said Danny: “We struck twice – including a 35 yard tree kick for the equaliser (4-4). Real smash and grab.”

“To be honest, that point virtually won us the league. We were confident of beating 6th- placed hosts Inverkip the following week. The lads responded winning 8-1 on May 25th, 2013.”
