CARLUKE club Milton Rovers landed the Clydesdale Team of the Year prize at the Carluke and Lanark Gazette Youth Football Awards.

Head coach Graham McAdam accepted the trophy from former SPL executive chairman Lex Gold at Carluke Masonic Hall, richly deserved recognition for the under-14 Milton 2000 side winning its second consecutive promotion this season.

“I was very honoured that we managed to win Team of the Year,” Graham said.

“We’ve come a long way – from the seven-a-side ranks to now playing at 11-a-side level.

“I thought that the Gazette ceremony was a superbly run night, with well thought out awards categories.”

After going up from LFDA Division C last season, Milton Rovers 2000s – who play home matches at Carluke’s John Cumming Stadium – earned another promotion from Division B in this campaign.

Indeed, there is still a chance that Rovers could win the Division B title, as they are nine points clear at the top having played all their league matches.
