New­mains bag third win on the trot

Wishaw Press - - ANGLING -

New­mains United chalked up their third win on the bounce for the first time in three years.

After a tor­rid few sea­sons, the re­vamped­vic­to­ria Park side smashed man­ager­less Ardeer to move up to ninth in the league.

Co-boss Paul Davies – whose men had beaten Ash­field and Salt­coats Vic­to­ria prior to Satur­day – said:“the win was a land­mark oc­ca­sion for the club.we re­alised the im­por­tance of the game be­fore­hand.

“Ardeer’s man­age­ment team had left so we didn’t know what re­sponse we were go­ing to face in terms of how their play­ers would re­act.

“But I have to credit the play­ers be­cause it was by far one of our best per­for­mances of the sea­son so far.”

A dou­ble from man-of-the-match Craig Scott and Adam Robert­son’s strike en­sured the his­toric third win.

United are look­ing trim off the pitch too, after lo­cal men’s hair spe­cial­ist­top Barber be­came the lat­est backer to come on board.

They have agreed to spon­sor the club’s home shorts after owner Ra­sul Mirza was im­pressed with the club’s rapid progress this term.

Mirza said:“new­mains have been win­ning games and do­ing things in the com­mu­nity which is great to see.

“I have just opened my new barber shop after we did some work to it so I thought it was a great idea to link up with the club.

“I’m proud to have my new logo on the shorts and to sup­port a club which is pro­gress­ing.”

Club cap­tain Davie Ross reck­ons the link-up is a great boost for the club.

He said:“it’s great to see busi­nesses are now look­ing to get in­volved with us.

“Foot­ball is a re­sults-driven in­dus­try but you need back­ing to make things work too.

“We’ve had a good run of re­sults re­cently and know we have to stay fo­cused to try to keep things go­ing.”
