With recent happenings at the club, it was the turn of interim manager Jamie McCunnie to give us his thoughts on Saturday’s 1-0 win over Sauchie in the Super League. Read below what he had to say…
“Saturday’s game came at the end of a hard week for everyone at the club. On behalf of all the lads here at the club, I’d like to thank Keith, Charlie and Tony for all their hard work and the success they brought to the club during their time in charge.
There were a few difficult decisions to make before the game on Saturday against Sauchie as there is good competition for places within the squad for a start.
The lads started the game really well and I felt we deserved to go in front after 15mins when Kevin Milne was brought down in the box for a penalty. Thankfully Paul McLellan kept his cool and put the penalty away to give us the lead. The rest of the first half was evenly matched without many clear opportunities for either side.
I was really happy in the second half with how the lads managed the game and we looked a real threat on the counter. We made some really good opportunities, hitting the post with one effort and their keeper making two very good saves also. But we went on to collect the points in what’s been a difficult week for the club and I’m delighted as is everyone here at the club.
We will now assess the squad over the next 24hours before deciding on what team to play against Forfar West End on Tuesday night. It’s a busy time at the start of the season with a couple of midweek games in between the Saturday games but we’ll move on together and deal with each game as they come round…”
The Fed now welcome Forfar West End on Tuesday night with a 6-45pm kick off.
