Camelon Juniors manager Gordon Wylde reckons supporters will want to come back to watch the side after seeing them beat Newtongrange Star 4-3 in their final home match of the East of Scotland First Division campaign.

A Jamie McAllister hat-trick and a Lewis Paton goal sealed the three points despite the visitors taking a 2-0 lead, and scoring an 88th minute equaliser to make it 3-3.

“We were outstanding,” Wylde said. “Even in the first half, we had total control. We missed a penalty again but luckily it didn’t cost us in the end.

“But we then ran over the top of them. Even when they brought it back to 3-3, I put on attacking players and we went for it. I knew we had it in us to win.

“Jamie McAllister was outstanding and the winning goal was a cracker.

"Our goalkeeper Jacob Welna was so far out of his goal, like I told him to, and he placed the ball right onto his head and the finish was perfect.

"The place erupted and the support was brilliant too, it looked so busy and I think after seeing that they would want to come back.

"I spoke to a supporter after the game and he said ‘it is a joy to see the team trying to play football’ and it is messages like that, for me, that really show we are going in the right direction.”

Camelon round off the campaign with a trip to leaders Dunbar United this Saturday.
