Manager's Programme Notes


Last weekend's postponement was a sad blow to our match preparations but in one way it may prove a blessing in disguise for it gives some more healing time for our casualties.

Both St. Mirren and ourselves will be hoping for Saturday's Cup-ties avoiding the necessity for replays so that we can play our League match on Wednesday night for neither Alex Smith nor myself wish to see a pile-up of fixtures as the season approaches the crucial stage.

The Tennents Sixes proved once again to be an exceptionally popular event for players and spectators alike, with capacity attendances at each session and every team striving all out all the way through the competition.

That our lads ended up as winners is of course very satisfying in itself, but even greater is the general acclaim accorded our team for the manner and style of their performance.

Our supporters, and there were a good number present, gave the team the usual fine backing throughout. To them we offer our thanks.

Today we are engaged on Cup business and there are many who might argue that we must be firm favourites against our visitors, Brechin City.

But we shall be taking nothing for granted, for we respect these opponents and fully realise that the history of this great knock-out tournament is littered with many ties when teams from the lower divisions pulled out that something extra and toppled their so-called big brothers.

So we will be on our guard and hope that the game gives both sets of supporters plenty to enthuse over and sends our fans home happy and contented.
