Paisley Daily Express - - Paisley’s Past - Craig Ritchie

Neil­ston boss Mar­tin Camp­bell ad­mits he has mixed emo­tions as he heads into his fi­nal game as boss.

Camp­bell and co-man­ager John Paul Dow will step down fol­low­ing to­day’s West of Scot­land Cup clash with Craig­mark Burn­to­ni­ans af­ter the pair ten­dered their res­ig­na­tions to the club’s com­mit­tee at the turn of the week.

They have both agreed to stay on un­til to­day’s clash be­fore hand­ing over the reins to care­taker boss Derek Car­son for the fore­see­able fu­ture.

How­ever, Camp­bell is hope­ful of go­ing out on a high as he strives to sign off with a win.

He told Ex­press Sport: “We have ap­proached this game like any other that we have been in charge.

“Ob­vi­ously the cir­cum­stances around the match means that prepa­ra­tion might have taken a hit but re­gard­less, we have done ev­ery­thing that we can to en­sure that the boys are more than ready for the game it­self.

“It is a winnable tie and we don’t want stan­dards to drop just be­cause of what has hap­pened this week.

“As men­tioned pre­vi­ously, it is with a heavy heart that we are leav­ing, but it just felt like the right time.

“The match it­self will be strange be­cause I know that af­ter it that is us fin­ished at Neil­ston.

“But af­ter all the hard work that we have put into mak­ing this side a suc­cess, we would love to fin­ish it with a win and by book­ing the club’s spot into the next round of the com­pe­ti­tion.

“I have faith in this group of boys and trust that they can go on to be a suc­cess un­der who­ever comes in af­ter us.

“Tonight will be a great chance to re­flect on what we have achieved at the club but hope­fully a win comes first.”
