Physio’s return boosts club
Glens gaffer Willie Harvey hopes to get more players out of the treatment room and onto the park this week.
The club’s physio, Victoria McGuire, has been working at the Commonwealth Games, and now they are ready to welcome her back.
They hope Victoria’s timely return could help them as they bid to qualify for the next round of the competition, knowing that a convincing victory could take them through, as long as Blantyre Vics fail to take full points in their outstanding fixture with East Kilbride Thistle tonight (Wednesday).
Willie said: “Our physio Victoria was involved in the Commonwealth Games with the hockey, so we’re delighted to be welcoming her back.
“Hopefully, now she’s back, we’ll have another two or three players back this week.”
The side face Vale of Clyde this Saturday in their final sectional league cup match.
Willie said: “They’ve changed quite a wee bit since we last played against them.
“I know from speaking to some of the other managers in the section that, by all accounts, they are a big, strong side, who are a very hard-working team.
“We played them in the league cup last year and they beat us, so it will be interesting to see what they’re like this year.
“I know their manager, Ian Currie, and he always sends out a strong team.”
Willie is currently looking at boosting his squad, and in particular wants to carry more of a threat in the forward line.
He explained: “Right now, we’re looking at the strikers’ positions, as I think we need more competition for places there.”
