Derby clash date is not right

Cam­bus­lang Rangers boss Paul McColl ad­mits he is dis­ap­pointed in the de­ci­sion to ar­range the first derby clash of the sea­son for a Wed­nes­day night.

Ju­nior foot­ball chiefs have lined up The Lang’s fi­nal Sec­tional League Cup tie with Ruther­glen Glen­cairn for Au­gust 16 (6.45pm).

But although the gaffer was not best pleased with the date of the fix­ture, he hopes to make home ad­van­tage count in the first two games of the com­pe­ti­tion against Vale of Clyde (Au­gust 2) and East Kil­bride (Au­gust 5).

McColl said:“It is not ideal. It re­duces half the crowd but there is noth­ing you can do.

“They are not there to do us any favours.

“We’ve got two home games to start off with which I’m happy about but there are no easy games.”

McColl has made three ad­di­tions to the 21-man squad. For­mer Kirk­in­til­loch Rob Roy star Sean McColl, ex-Ruther­glen am­a­teur player Harry Mitchell and Con­nor Bran­ni­gan have all penned deals at Somervell.
