New era at Adamslie

NEW Rob Roy manager Jimmy Lindsay is gunning for glory in the League Cup.

While many junior clubs use the sectional competition as an extended pre-season, the Kirkintilloch gaffer says his newly-built squad will be up for the cup from the first whistle.

The Adamslie Park club host Cumbernauld United this Saturday, July 30 (kick-off 2pm).

The new look Rabs got off to the perfect start last Saturday with a convincing 3-0 win at Kelty Hearts in the clubs’ annual pre-season friendly.

Lindsay said: “I want to win every game I’m in and the players know that.”

With only two players from last year’s Rob Roy team involved at Kelty - Jon Carter and Brian Mackay - Lindsay has very much handpicked his own squad, with a whole host of new signings.

Lindsay said: “There was no other way. A lot of the players from last season wanted to look for something new.”
