In brief

Rutherglen Reformer - - Football -


The 28- year- old for­mer Stonelaw pupil has been in good form at the start of this sea­son, help­ing his side to a cred­i­ble draw away to Dun­fermline.

H e h a s a l s o s c o re d a g a i n s t Sten­house­muir in the league and Cow­den­beath in the Chal­lenge Cup.

And the for­mer Queen’s Park player will be hop­ing to im­prove on his side’s eighth place fin­ish last year: “I think we should be look­ing for at least the play-offs this sea­son.

“We had a dis­ap­point­ing sea­son last year, which was not good enough by any­one’s stan­dards.

“You’ve got the two full-time teams in Dun­fermline and Mor­ton who will prob­a­bly be the favourites for the top two spots.

“Ev­ery­one else will be look­ing for a play-off.”

The winger has been pleased with his per­for­mances and the per­for­mances of his team mates so far this sea­son - but ad­mits they should have had two more points on the board: “We had a good re­sult away to Dun­fermline, who I think are rightly the favourites for the league.

“They’re one of only a few full-time teams in a pri­mar­ily part time di­vi­sion. They’ve spent quite a bit of money through­out the sum­mer.

“We had a good draw away from home against them. They had a lot of the ball but not many clear cut chances, in fact I’d say we had the best chances in the game.

“We went in to the Sten­house­muir game at home and were lucky enough to get the vic­tory. Af­ter the first 20 to 25 min­utes we were the stronger team for the rest of the match.

“Thank­fully I was able to score a de­cent goal and get the three points.

“Satur­day was dis­ap­point­ing against Stran­raer. We had a 2-0 lead at half-time, they scored and then with just about the last kick of the ball they scored di­rect from a cor­ner. That felt like a de­feat more than any­thing.

“It’s not been a bad start to the sea­son al­though we should have won against Stran­raer and should have seven points out of nine in­stead of five.” Gun­ners Boys Club are look­ing for out­field play­ers with some ex­pe­ri­ence for their 2002s team.
