Youth football: McClymont brace caps superb Bute comeback

Connor McClymont scored twice on Saturday as Bute YFC came back from two goals down with 20 minutes left to win 4-2 away to Clarkston AAC.

Bute made most of the running in a goalless first half, but were left with a mountain to climb after a defensive error and a well-worked Clarkston strike gave the home side a commanding lead.

But the islanders reduced the leeway just a minute with a glorious 30-yard strike from Ronan Officer before Matthew Leitch levelled the game with his 13th of the season.

McClymont gave a rampant Bute side the lead a minute later before sealing the points with a glorious late strike.
