2020 kicked off with a flying start for both Red Star 2007s and 2004s.
The 2007s headed to Glasgow in a top of the table clash against Glasgow Boys. A terrific football match ensued, with 11 goals between the teams.
Eventually the Lochgilphead boys emerged as winners by six goals to five with Semple finishing off his hat trick with a fantastic last minute free kick. Ryan Gibson was Star’s other scorer with a hat trick of his own.
A great result against a strong Glasgow Boys team.
Red Star 2004s had a tricky home game against Busby who pushed them all the way.
Busby started well driving the Lochgilphead boys back and deservedly taking the lead and then adding a second.
Star recovered and great work by McMurchy set up McLean to beat the keeper. McLean levelled the score just before halftime turning a corner by Aitken into the net.
The second half was competitive with two well matched teams working hard in the gusty conditions. Star took the lead when McMurchy chased down a long ball, before turning into the box and being upended with Aitken scoring the resulting penalty.
The game remained close as Busby chased an equaliser but with a few minutes left Caskie collected the ball near the corner, drove into the box and his cross allowed McLean to add his second for a 4-2 win.
