First XI - Champions!!

The First XI have been crowned Champions of the Greater Glasgow Premier Division 1 at the first attempt!! The team have had a meteoric rise through the divisions since the Club was reformed in 2007 and full credit goes to the players and coaching staff for the sheer effort and attacking football that fans of Third Lanark always expect of their team. The Club is progressing well and all involved are extremely proud of the lads achievements in season 2011/2012, in which the league was won(having only just been promoted!), a successful couple of cup runs and of course the capture of the inaugural Rifle Volunteers Cup way back at the beginning of the season v St Bernards in Edinburgh. The success in winning the Championship was even mentioned in the Scottish Parliament in June 2012, thanks to James Dornan,MSP, as was our quest to return to our spiritual home of Cathkin Park. We have once again applied to Glasgow City Council for a regular 'let' at the old stadium and keenly await their decision. Here's a few photos c/o Steph Campbell,who is also pictured with the league trophy. looks like the first thing we'd have to rebuild at Cathkin will be a new trophy room!! We will keep you posted on all developments.........
