Newmains bag third win on the trot
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.”
