Sometimes it has been Scott Anson and sometimes John Gemmell - but more often than not this season it is the lang-in-the-tooth pair's' striking team-mate Scott Williamson, who has encapsulated why Cambuslang Rangers are the most freescoring team in the entire WoSFL.

The 20-year-old, spotted and then plucked from local amateurs Camby FC by Somervell Park boss Paul McColl, has been an absolute revelation  since stepping up to the higher level and has already helped himself to 23 of his side’s eye-popping 54 goals from just 11 matches to date.

Williamson’s latest brace of goals arrived in last Saturday’s 10-1 Conference B Division thrashing of luckless Royal Albert when Anson top scored with a  hat-trick. Jay Nelson, Tony Stevenson, Paddy Queen, Alan Reid and Ryan Francis were also on target.

The treble-scoring marksman said: “It’s great to have a fair sprinkling of the guys chipping in with goals however nothing can take away from young Scott’s goalscoring exploits.

“He has been quite phenomenal with opposition defences up to now simply unable to cope with his burning pace and he deserves most of the credit going for this being the best start, result-wise, that I’ve made to a season throughout my playing career.

“Winning my first ten games on  the spin (Anson was injured for the 3-2 opening day defeat by  St Cadoc's) has justified my decision to come here during the summer months when I had all but put pen to paper for  Drumchapel United.

“A move to Cambuslang Rangers didn’t seem right but our gaffer Paul convinced me otherwise over a cup of coffee and I’m so glad he did because the way things are going, we have the look of a  team that is either going to win the C Division title - or be very close to it”.

The versatility of the 32-year-old, now at his tenth club since dropping into the Junior ranks from  Annan Athletic back in 2010, and that of the similarly-seasoned Gemmell has been utilized to great effect by Lang boss  McColl and  No.2 Billy Campbell in coping with injuries besetting their rearguard.

Scott revealed: “Central  defence has been a bit of a thorny issue with both Ryan Francis and Lee McLelland sidelined for lengthy spells. I’ve played at the back on at least six occasions, which has not been to the liking of David  Collins who has opted to go out on loan to Wishaw in search of regular  game time.

“Big John has also fitted into our backline whenever necessary and has turned in a string of outstanding performances, both as a defender and target man striker, which explains why Premier League side Hurlford United were mad keen to sign him.

“He and I were thought to be the ones set to form Cambuslang’s attacking spearhead before a ball was kicked but young Scott’s form in front of goal has all but kyboshed that partnership and it’s more or less accepted when our team sheet is read out  that one of us will be operating as a centre-back.

“John featuring in defence against Royal Albert allowed myself to resume my more recognized forward-line role and scoring three times acted as a massive confidence boost - but there’s no guarantee I will still be up front  this Saturday when we face Carluke  Rovers in the South Challenge Cup.

“As much as the gaffer wants to continue our winning ways, he is determined to make changes and afford game time to everyone in our squad, even to the extent of resting up young Scott.”

The Lang’s second spot in C Division is  sure to remain unchanged as undefeated league leaders St Cadoc's have an idle Saturday while third-placed Ardeer Thistle have a similar Cup tie involvement in making the short hop to face Ardeer Thistle.
