Kilwinning Rangers 4 Bonnyton Thistle 0Chris Strain watched hat-trick hero Thomas Collins blast Buffs to a third straight win today – then insisted he loved his graft as much as his goals.Kilwinning Rangers were on easy street against Bonnyton Thistle from the moment Collins stroked the opening goal into an empty net after just six minutes.The former Beith hitman doubled his tally before the break and made his a treble at the end after midfielder David Ramsay added Buffs third.Kilwinning's four-goal show sent them up to third place in the West of Scotland League Premier Division to leave boss Strain satisfied and singing the praises of strike star Collins.He told Ayrshire Football News: "I thought we started the game with a good appetite and got an early goal.
We took the game away from Bonnyton quite early."Thomas cleared the fence a couple of times with a couple of ambitious shots, let's just say, before he got his hat-trick which was thoroughly deserved.The Ayrshire Live app is available to download now.Get all the local news in your area – plus features, football news and the latest on the coronavirus crisis – at your fingertips 24/7.The free download features the latest breaking news and exclusive stories while you can customise your page with the sections that matter to you.The Ayrshire Live app is available to download now on iOS and Android."I'm more pleased with Thomas's work rate.
