FOOTBALLING legend Ian Cashmore has called time on his Junior Football career, after a glittering spell which saw him bang in hundreds of goals.

The Kilwinning man, who started out back in season 2000-01, Ardrossan Winton Rovers to join local club Dirrans Athletic.

This week Cashmore, nicknamed Cashy, looked back on his career and recalled the many high points. During an amazing career, the 36-year-old won the Super Premier Division with Glenafton Athletic and Kilwinning Rangers, and a hat-trick of Ayrshire District League titles with Buffs. Honours also include District League titles with Ardrossan Winton Rovers and Dalry Thistle, two Ayrshire Weekly Press Cups with Buffs and one with Cumnock. He also played for Irvine Vics, Troon, Ayr United, Stirling Albion and Stranraer.

Ian said: “I had always said I wanted to round off my career at Dir rans Athletic with my mates, I’ve taken a lot longer than the others to get there. I have really enjoyed my career and it’s great to have had the opportunity to play for so many clubs.

The highlight without a doubt was winning the Super Premier Division with Kilwinning Rangers in 2003-4, I was only 20 at the time and it was an amazing achievement. I played alongside the likes of Alan McTurk, Stevie Farrell and Mark Cameron, who had so much experience and it was also good to win other titles with The hundred. I wasn’t getting a game at Winton Rovers and feltit was time for a change.

I just want to keep playing and really believe there’s a Buffs and win the Super League again with Glenafton Athletic. I scored 118 goals with Buffs alone and maybe another couple of few more goals in me yet.

My top opponents have been John Sheridan and Chris McGowan.”
