Saints boss sets tar­gets

The Galloway News - - MOTORS -

Pro­gres­sion is the main aim for St Cuth­bert Wan­der­ers this sea­son.

Ahead of the big kick-off in the league this week­end, man­ager Craig Fraser has set out his aims for the cam­paign which be­gins away to Dum­fries YMCA on Satur­day.

He said: “The guys are ready to go. They’ve worked on their fit­ness, they’ve been given tac­ti­cal in­struc­tions, now they just want a game. Last year we had to do a lot of re­build­ing af­ter an ex­o­dus of play­ers. Now I think we need to be pro­gress­ing.

“We’ve got a phi­los­o­phy in place and we need to be act­ing on it now. We should be chal­leng­ing for sil­ver­ware and com­pet­ing at the top of the league.

“If we could have a nice run in the Scot­tish Cup that would be great as well.”

Saints will be with­out Tyler Ren­nie and Jek Kiltie who are sus­pended for the game.

How­ever, new sign­ing Dale Mil­li­gan will be fit.

The mid­fielder, who spent last sea­son with He­ston Rovers, scored in a 1-1 friendly draw with Ju­niors side Annbank United at Cam­bus­doon Sports Club.

Craig added: “Satur­day was a good game and a very worth­while ex­er­cise. They were a good side. They weren’t as phys­i­cal as Les­ma­hagow the week be­fore but we still learned a lot.

“Guys got a lot of min­utes un­der their belts and that’s what we were look­ing for. We went ahead in the game but we con­ceded about 10 min­utes from the end. We like to play the Ju­nior teams as there’s a wee bit of nig­gle in the games and we’ll come up against that quite a bit next sea­son.”
