would you sum up the season?
been a very pleasing season although very disappointing the way it has finished after getting ourselves in a great position
for promotion. You only have to look at the points we dropped at home to see why we missed out on a top 2 finish.
performance pleased you most and why?
we returned over the festive period we played Arniston who I rate very highly. Not only did we manage to win the game convincingly
but our fitness levels and energy were so good that I think we could have beat most teams on the day.
was the team’s worst performance and why?
have been a few disappointing score lines over the season but most have been down to circumstances but the game that disappointed
me the most was against Musselburgh at Olive Bank where we never showed up and in my opinion froze on the big match. I just
felt the boys never showed what they are capable of on the day and let everyone down involved in the club on the night.
have you enjoyed your first year as a manager?
have enjoyed it immensely. You know there will be ups and downs in the season but I feel we have taken another step in the
progression of the club in becoming a force in junior football again and hopefully go one better next season.
difficult was it to adapt from player to manager status?
very difficult because one minute you are playing with your team mates and the next you are hoping to gain enough respect
from the guys to help you make big decisions to take the club forward.
was the most difficult change for you?
similar to the above as I now have to pick a team of 11 from a squad of 23 and I know all are capable of doing a job. However
its never nice to tell someone they are not playing on a Saturday but I have always maintained if you are playing well enough
you will retain your place in the starting line up.
