Glens will try their best at Rob Roy

Rutherglen Reformer - - Reader Travel -

Glen­cairn will field a patchedup squad tonight when they travel to Kirk­in­til­loch Rob Roy for their fi­nal game of the sea­son.

Wil­lie Har­vey reck­ons his side are run­ning on empty as the sea­son draws to a close, with sev­eral play­ers set to miss out due to a com­bi­na­tion of in­juries and work.

The lat­est player to miss out will be goal­keeper JC Hutchi­son, who dam­aged lig­a­ments in his thumb in Mon­day night’s draw with Shet­tle­ston.

He joins the likes of Andy Neil (work), Jor­dan Dalzell ( work), Graeme Brown ( ham­string) and Wil­lie Gal­loway ( ham­string) who have joined the list of miss­ing.

Wil­lie said: “Hutchy dam­aged his thumb in the first few min­utes but played on.

“He had to go to hos­pi­tal af­ter the match and will be un­avail­able.

“We’ll stitch up as many play­ers as we can for to­mor­row and do our best to put a team on the park.

“All I can ask is for the play­ers to give us their best and see where that takes us.

“I know they will give their best who­ever man­ages to pull on a strip.

“I’ll ask them to fin­ish the sea­son with a win.”

While the se­nior team’s cam­paign has come to an anti- cli­mac­tic fin­ish, the un­der 21s are still in the hunt for two cups.

They face Mus­sel­burgh Wind­sor on Fri­day night (May 8) at Somervell park in Cam­bus­lang (ko 6.45pm) in the fi­nal of the Lady Dar­ling Cup.

Then on May 24, they will play in the fi­nal of the Golden Goals Cup at Green­field Park in Shet­tle­ston, although their op­po­nents are not yet known.

Wil­lie said: “They’ve done re­ally well con­sid­er­ing they are such a young team.

“They re­mind me of the side who won ev­ery­thing a few years ago. If they stay to­gether and keep pro­gress­ing, then next year they will be a very pow­er­ful team.

“Ide­ally, peo­ple can get along and watch them and give them all the sup­port they can.”
