Barry Takes Positives from Brora Draw

The Bully Wee’s pre-season tour ended this afternoon, with a 0-0 draw against Highland League champions Brora Rangers.

The friendly match, played in blustery conditions at Dudgeon Park, was competitive and featured several chances at either end despite the blank scoreline.

Following the full-time whistle, Barry Ferguson spoke to the official website. He said:-

“The conditions were difficult for both teams, but I thought some of the stuff we played was good. That was probably that team’s second full game together and things are just starting to come together. I was happy with a lot of things, but there are other things we still need to work on.

“We died a bit towards the end, but that was to be expected – we did a double training session yesterday so the boys have been worked hard.”

The Clyde manager concluded with his view of the summer tour overall:-

“The players have loved it, it’s been a hard workout for them but they will get the benefit of that during the season. They’ve all bonded together well and that was one of the main reasons for organising the time away.

“We’re at a good level now in terms of fitness and the touch and match sharpness will start to come in the next week or two.”
