Mark on the up
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.
