Glens will try their best at Rob Roy
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.”
