Glenafton striker Gareth Armstrong has signed for Troon. The longest serving member of the current squad ‘Bo’ joined the Glens in January 2010 under then manager Mark Shanks. Highly respected throughout the Junior game he quickly attained ‘legendary’ status at Loch Park and scored 75 goals from 98 starts with thirty odd more appearances from the bench. That tremendous goal ratio saw him finish top goalscorer for the club in each of the last four seasons, including a tally of 27 in 2011/12 helping Glens to claim the Super 1st Division Championship.
Bo was renowned for his explosive goal which would be greeted with an equally explosive smile that will be sorely missed by all at Glenafton. Fittingly his late goal in the West of Scotland Cup final last season forced the game to a penalty shout and up stepped Bo to slot home the winning spot kick.
The club would like to thank Gareth for his loyal service to the club and wish him every success at Troon.
