Barry named man­ager of month

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sports Round-up -

Clyde man­ager Barry Fer­gu­son was named Lad­brokes League Two Man­ager of the Month for Novem­ber.

The Bully Wee boss ded­i­cated the award to his play­ers but was de­lighted to get his first prize as Clyde boss.

Striker David Gorm­ley was named Player of the Month.

Fer­gu­son be­lieves his side are now tak­ing shape as gen­uine ti­tle con­tenders af­ter an in­dif­fer­ent start to the cam­paign but in­sists he does not de­serve the credit.

He said: “I’m de­lighted all our hard work is be­ing recog­nised but I’m a lit­tle em­bar­rassed at the same time be­cause it’s not about me. It’s about the ef­forts of all the play­ers and the coach­ing staff. It’s not fair to sin­gle out in­di­vid­u­als.

“I’m sur­rounded by peo­ple at this club who go the ex­tra mile ev­ery sin­gle day but all their work goes un­no­ticed. It’s bet­ter to be get­ting awards than not get­ting them but this is all about what we are do­ing as a group. I have a great bunch of play­ers here with a ter­rific at­ti­tude.”

Clyde FC Lottery Draw num­bers for De­cem­ber 2, 2015: 11, 14, 17, 20. There was no jack­pot win­ner. Five share £ 250 sec­ond prize. Jack­pot in­creases to £15,000.

Queen’s bowed out of the Scot­tish Cup at a blowy Sta­tion Park but the Spi­ders will be won­der­ing how they man­aged to wind up on the wrong end of a 2-1 score­line to For­far.

Gus MacPher­son tweaked the start­ing line-up, bring­ing in Bryan Whar­ton at the ex­pense of Craig McLeish.

The Spi­ders were quicker into their stride than their hosts but the first shot on tar­get came from For­far’s Danny Den­holm.

His pace had trou­bled Queen’s in the first match and he looked in the mood af­ter 10 min­utes when he drifted past his de­fender and fired off a pow­er­ful, low shot which Muir did well to get down and save.

The home side had shown their men­ace from set-pieces and took the lead on the stroke of half-time.

Queen’s gave away a sense­less free kick and the ball was played out wide to Den­holm. He put a cross right on the head of Travis, who bul­leted the ball past Muir.

Queen’s were out early af­ter the break and All over Chris Tem­ple­man scores to send For­far through to the next round
