NOTE STEPHEN: No-one could give us a pic of Killie teenager owing to copyright etc and he's still overseas so kept that down the story to keep Campbell the lead with pic, Stewart.

VETERAN defender Martyn Campbell bowed out in style on Friday, helping ensure Kilwinning Rangers’ Premier Division survival.

The 36-year-old former Ayr United stopper made his farewell in the playoff game against Kilsyth Rangers at Abbey Park. This ended in a 2-2 draw, courtesy of goals from Findlay Frye and Sam McCloskey.

Buffs won 3-2 on aggregate after a Carlo Monti goal had given them a 1-0 win in the opening leg at Kilsyth on Wednesday.

Now after beating the drop, Buffs can look forward to a home Ayrshire Weekly Press Cup semi-final against Auchinleck Talbot tonight (Wednesday).

Campbell, who is retiring owing to a recurring knee injury said: “It was an exciting game and excellent to come away with the win. I have had a lot of knee injuries. That’s me done, I’ll probably not play again. I have been in the game for 20 years. My knee was really painful before the game and during it."

Boss Chris Strain added: “Martyn hasn’t been able to walk since playing for us against Pollok a couple of weeks ago and I begged and pleaded with him to play. We can look forward to the semi-final without the fear of relegation."

Meanwhile West Kilbride teenager Iain Wilson has been in the Scotland Under-20s squad for the prestigious Toulon Tournament, which concluded in France yesterday (Tuesday).

The 18-year-old midfielder, who has made 21 first team appearances for Killie, started in Saturday's 1-0 win against Brazil. It was the first time Scotland had defeated the South Americans competitively in any level of football.

Killie team-mates Greg Taylor and Adam Frizzell also featured.
