Banchory St Ternan manager Sandy Carrol has praised his side for their efforts during the first half of the season and has called on the players to build on their steady start.

The Saints currently lie sixth in the PMAC Group Superleague table after 14 games and remain in the GA Engineering Inter Regional Trophy and McLeman Cup so the Milton men have plenty to play for between now and the end of the season.

Carrol said: “During the first half of the season I think we have performed very well indeed. I have practically rebuilt an entire squad, reduced the age of the squad considerably and spent very little money.

“It takes time for new players to settle in but we now have a close knit squad who fight tooth and nail for each other and overall our style of football is pleasing to the eye.

“In the second half of the season I will be working on bringing in a couple of experienced players to the squad and push on up the league and maybe do a bit of damage in the cup competitions, which we are more than capable of doing.”

Saints’ match against Maud last weekend was called off due to a frozen pitch and they will instead travel to Hermes this Saturday in league action.

Meanwhile, Culter, who have only played eight league games, will be hoping their match at Hall Russell United goes ahead after last week’s match against Sunnybank was also postponed.
