Arran Amateur Football Club (AFC) returned to winning ways last weekend with a hard-fought, eight-goal thriller against Glencairn Thistle.

The ‘home’ match, which took place at Ardeer Juniors’ stadium, saw Kieran Rae scoring a brace with Donald Park, Grant Adamson and Ryan Armstrong adding goals to the winning tally.

A spokesman for Arran AFC said: ‘A great result after last week’s disappointing result. It was a tough game from start to finish and we wish Glencairn Thistle all the best for the rest of season.

‘Thanks to today’s sponsor, The Old Post Office Laundry, and congratulations to man of the match Sam Tattersfield.’

Arran take on their next opponents, Irvine Sports Bar, on Sunday December 5 in another ‘home’ game at Ardeer Juniors’ stadium. See the Arran club’s facebook page for kick-off time.
