BAJFC manager Jamie McCunnie was again a happy man following his sides hard fought 3-2 away win over Camelon on Saturday at Carmuirs Park. Following on from last Saturdays last minute draw at home to Hill of Beath, the gaffer knew it was important to get things right and the boys certainly did that. Read below what he had to say…

“Saturday’s game was exactly what we thought it would be, a real tough encounter and we knew we’d need to stand up to a very physical presence Camelon have. They have been on a great run of late so I’m very delighted with the bravery my players showed when in possession of the ball during the game.

We started well, we created several chances with Camelon offering nothing much back in return and if it wasn’t for their keeper and the woodwork we could have had the game put to bed far earlier, he did very well saving from Brian Clark, Kevin Milne, Derryn Kesson and Jamie Winter, but we went behind to a mistake and totally against the run of play.

We had some great individual performances throughout the team, special mentions to Jordan Garden, (pictured left) making his first start for us, he worked his socks off literally, and star man on the day Derryn Kesson, but the thing that pleased me the most was that we always looked lively going forward up the park and the team spirit throughout the game, it was great to see. Some of the passage of play was a joy to see and we moved the ball about the park well.

The players have been excellent and are all starting to show what they’re capable of on a consistent basis. Hopefully, this can continue for the remainder of the season for us as we still have some tough games ahead to play, starting this Saturday when we host Linlithgow Rose at Whitton Park. They are a very good side but we will approach the game with confidence and be looking to hit the same standards the players have shown me recently…”

Broughty Athletic entertain former Super League champions Linlithgow Rose this Saturday at Whitton Park with kick off scheduled for 2-30pm.
