    First quarter ends with another defeat 

    Monday, October 06, 2008 1:13:48 PM

    As we are now at the end of the first quarter of the league season, it is disappointing for everyone at the club, management, directors , players and fans to see the club bottom of the division, a position no one expected after reaching the play off stages last season. However, like every football club, we are only as good as our last result and no team has a divine right to win. The team this season have picked up just four points in our opening nine league matches and are at the bottom of the league. This season we have found it difficult to score goals, with only ten goals from our opening nine league matches, five of which were scored in the one match, if we are not scoring goals it isn’t easy to win games. The team badly need a win to get their season back on track. On Saturday at Glebe Park we again had chances before Brechin City scored but could not find the net before Brechin City went ahead. The players put in a great effort at Glebe Park in driving rain and wind, but on the day Brechin City showed why they are top of the league. In Allan Maitland we have one of the best part time managers in the Scottish game with the knowledge and optimism which has helped move this club forward. Players do not become bad players overnight, but clearly they are badly in need of their next victory. Next Saturday we will have a break due to the International matches and then we have a home match against Arbroath. We need to work on improving our situation which is hurting many people just now, starting against Arbroath lets pull together and try to secure three vital league points.
