Bute YFC’s under-15s saw their long unbeaten run come crashing to a halt at home to their Giffnock SC opponents on Saturday.
Bute, perhaps suffering from a little ring-rustiness after playing just one game in the whole of February, were caught sleeping at the back by an aggressive Giffnock side, and the islanders trailed 3-0 at the interval.
The second half was a much closer affair, and top scorer Andy McErlean pulled one back with a cool lob over the Giffnock keeper ten minutes from tuime before setting up a frantic end to the game with a superb finish into the top corner - but despite their best efforts the home side were unable to conjure up the equaliser which would have preserved an unbeaten record stretching back to early October.
Next up for BYFC is an away game against Langcraigs on March 12.
