FORMER Kennoway Amateurs FC player, and now regular East Fife midfielder, Craig Johnstone, dropped back in on his old team recently.

The amateur side was training at Levenmouth Swimming Pool when Johnstone and East Fife director John Barclay arrived to present a signed shirt to manager Alex Davidson, to demonstrate their appreciation for the local side.

Johnstone was picked up by the Methil men after being scouted by the club, which was then under the charge of player-manager Stevie Crawford.

Johnstone represented Kennoway in the Scottish Amateur Cup Final at New Bayview just a few weeks before signing on for the Second Division club.

He forced his way firstly into Crawford’s side and has remained a mainstay on the left side of midfield through current manager John Robertson’s tenure.

Kennoway are, and have been for some time, one of the area’s finest amateur football clubs.

The side plays its home games at Cotlands Park and fixtures, results and match reports can be read each week in the Mail’s amateur football round-up.
