Mark on the up

East Kilbride News - - FOOTBALL -

Mark McGuigan hopes help­ing Sten­house­muir to pro­mo­tion as the club’s top scorer will prove he is at his best up front.

The 29-year-old is cel­e­brat­ing af­ter the War­riors won pro­mo­tion to League One with a play-off vic­tory over Peter­head last week.

And af­ter net­ting 23 goals in the suc­cess­ful cam­paign, he wants to say good­bye to the days of play­ing out wide like he did dur­ing spells at Stran­raer and Al­bion Rovers pre­vi­ously.

McGuigan said: “It’s been a great sea­son for me. I needed a sea­son where I could get a good run play­ing reg­u­larly and hope­fully I’ve re­paid the man­ager for the faith he’s shown in me.

“Any time I’ve had a run up top, even for spells at Stran­raer and Al­bion Rovers be­fore, I’ve scored goals.

“If I play 30-odd games up top that’s where I feel I’m at my best.

“I hope af­ter the sea­son I’ve had and the goals I’ve scored that’s it ce­mented that my best po­si­tion is play­ing through the mid­dle and not out wide.

“Our ob­jec­tive at the start of the sea­son was pro­mo­tion, so it’s job done af­ter a long, hard sea­son.”

Mean­while, EK’s Neil Parry guided Al lo a to pro­mo­tion to the Cham­pi­onship af­ter they beat Dum­bar­ton.
