McGinn has his eye on the prize

Paisley Daily Express - - A Newlandscape -

Saints skip­per Stephen McGinn in­sists the club is a “Premier­ship side in wait­ing” after ad­mit­ting it would be an hon­our to lead them back to the top flight.

McGinn has al­ready savoured Premier­ship foot­ball with the Bud­dies in his pre­vi­ous spell with the club, and has his eyes on a re­turn up the lad­der next sea­son.

The Bud­dies look on course to match the cap­tain’s am­bi­tion — although he revealed he had been shocked to see how low the club had sunk be­fore his re­turn.

He said:“I left when St Mir­ren were a good Premier­ship club. It was a club that was get­ting to cup fi­nals, win­ning cup fi­nals, and it was re­ally threat­en­ing the top six and reach­ing the lat­ter stages of com­pe­ti­tions.

“At that point, I couldn’t have pre­dicted what hap­pened over the next four or five years, after the cup fi­nal. It was a dis­as­ter.

“I know it’s a cliche, but what the club has got with the sta­dium and the train­ing ground, it re­ally is a Premier­ship club in wait­ing.

“I would be re­ally proud to take the club back to that level.”
