Transfer Talk

The club is continuing to work hard to bring new faces to the club as the transfer window nears its end.

However, Monday’s deadline may not signal the end of the activity, as manager John McCormack explained as he chatted to the official website about what was happening behind the scenes:-

“We are actively in the market for players in all positions but at the moment there is nothing to announce. I thought we were close to making a double signing yesterday but unfortunately it was not to be the case and we will keep plugging away.

“When I went up to see East Fife play during the week I met a few other managers in exactly the same boat as us. Deals are not just dependent on you own club but also on the moves made by other clubs. So we have to be patient and I don’t want the fans to panic as it’s important we get the right players in. Let’s not forget that after the deadline, out of contract players can still be signed and loan deals can still be arranged.

“We have lost a lot of bodies and I appreciate it may not have looked like it on Saturday but I do believe the players we’ve brought in so far will improve our position and we will get our results. People can write us off at their peril, we will move up the league.

“We are all in this together.We can’t have some thinking they are better than what they are or not willing to work for the team. I can’t have players who go in the huff when they lose the ball or when someone doesn’t pass to them.

“Maybe I’ve got it wrong, maybe I should just get the team to grind out results, stop the opposition from playing and just worry about that but I want us to put on good performances and get the fans enjoying the game. I want to see players who can supply the ball and make goals, players who can get goals and defenders who stop goals and get us clean sheets.

“I have not written off reaching the promotion play-offs – we can do it. I am working as hard as I can to earn a longer contract at Clyde and that starts by securing our Second Division status and pushing on from there.”
