Physio’s re­turn boosts club

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sports -

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.”
