Rutherglen Reformer - - Sports - Will Hen­shaw

Clyde boss Barry Fer­gu­son took the pos­i­tives from the Bully Wee’s 0-0 friendly draw with High­land League cham­pi­ons Brora Rangers on Satur­day.

The friendly match, played in blus­tery con­di­tions at Dud­geon Park, was com­pet­i­tive and fea­tured sev­eral chances at ei­ther end de­spite the blank score­line.

Speak­ing to the of­fi­cial Clyde web­site, the for­mer Rangers cap­tain said: “The con­di­tions were dif­fi­cult for both teams, but I thought some of the stuff we played was good.

“That was prob­a­bly that team’s sec­ond full game to­gether and things are just start­ing to come to­gether.

“I was happy with a lot of things, but there are other things we still need to work on.

“We died a bit to­wards the end, but that was to be ex­pected - we did a dou­ble train­ing ses­sion yesterday so the boys have been worked hard.”

Satur­day’s game was the last of Clyde’s pre-sea­son tour which in­cluded a 2- 1 de­feat to Wick Academy at Harmsworth Park last week and a 1-1 draw against East Kil­bride FC the week be­fore.

The Clyde man­ager con­cluded with his view of the sum­mer tour over­all and said: “The play­ers have loved it, it’s been a hard work­out for them but they will get the ben­e­fit of that dur­ing the sea­son.

“They’ve all bonded to­gether well and that was one of the main rea­sons for or­gan­is­ing the time away.

“We’re at a good level now in terms of fit­ness and the touch and match sharp­ness will start to come in the next week or two.”
