Good­win hero­ics in­spire Fo­ley

- By JOHN McGARRY Sports · Scottish Premier League · Soccer · St. Mirren F.C.

ST MIR­REN mid­fielder Sam Fo­ley says there is no rea­son why the Pais­ley play­ers can’t fol­low in the foot­steps of man­ager Jim Good­win and hold the League Cup aloft this season. Good­win was skip­per when the Bud­dies won the tro­phy by beat­ing Hearts in 2013 and scarcely needs to re­mind the cur­rent squad that oc­ca­sion­ally the stars can align. First, they have to over­come vis­i­tors Aberdeen to­day, but Fo­ley in­sists his pre­de­ces­sors have shown that mak­ing it all the way to Ham­p­den is not im­pos­si­ble. ‘I don’t know how he’s man­aged it but he (Good­win) has got his face all over the in­side of the sta­dium,’ smiled Fo­ley. ‘So, when­ever we’re here, we’re re­minded about it. ‘That ob­vi­ously hap­pened in the not-too-dis­tant past and the man­ager is al­ways one to say any­thing is pos­si­ble. ‘St Mir­ren in 2013 proved that’s the case and there’s no rea­son why this group can’t em­u­late that.’
