Glen­cairn in for the Ital­ian job

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sport -

Glen­cairn went all Euro­pean this week when they snapped up strik­ers Tad­deo and Si­mone Sor­rentino.

The Ital­ian pair, who are un­cle and nephew, had im­pressed in train­ing and in friendlies.

Si­mone, who has ex­pe­ri­ence in ju­nior foot­ball with Pol­lok, had been on Glen’s radar since last sea­son but in­jury held up any deal.

He rec­om­mended his nephew, who had come to Scot­land for tri­als with se­nior clubs.

Boss Wil­lie Harvey said: “They are bril­liant boys and the squad have taken to them right away.

“Both their at­ti­tudes are bril­liant. Si­mone is more laid back but Tad­deo has that Latin tem­per­a­ment. They both bring some­thing dif­fer­ent.”

Glen’s Scot­tish Cup tie with Neil­ston fell foul of the rain on Satur­day and Wil­lie ad­mit­ted he is keen to avoid a re­peat of pre­vi­ous years: “The last thing we want is to go five or six weeks try­ing to get a cup game played. We got a good re­sults against May­bole and we wanted to keep that go­ing.

“We seem to be un­lucky. We had prob­lems with our park so I un­der­stand it but it’s frus­trat­ing.”
