‘Class’ of 2016 equal club record

Tuesday, 27 September 2016 18:08

The current ‘Loons’ squad it has been confirmed equalled a club record at Broadwood on Saturday by winning seven consecutive league fixtures.  This is only the third time the feat has been achieved in the Athies 131 year history.

The first occasion was back in February/April of 1995 as the team of that era under Tommy Campbell’s stewardship went on to clinch the SFL Third Division title. A similar run of wins was recorded for a second time in March and April of 2010 by Dick Campbell’s troops on the way to a play-off spot and subsequent promotion.

Congratulations are in order to Gary and his players on this achievement and of course Stuart and his team mates now have a chance in Saturday’s local derby to re-write the Station Park record book.  It will be no easy task however.

It is interesting to look back on the runs in the two previous campaigns mentioned above.
