Gormley Aims to Earn His Place

Clyde forward David Gormley spoke to the media following Saturday’s 2-1 win over Annan Athletic in Ladbrokes League 2.

The 28-year-old scored a late winning goal and he modestly described the excellent finish:-

“It was good to put it into the back of the net,” he said. “I gave Goodwillie the shout to flick the ball on and I ran in behind and got the strike away.

“Getting the win was a sigh of relief for everyone; players, fans and coaching staff. Annan are a good team. The season is far from over yet though and there are still four big games to go. Two of them are at home and we need to do the same as we did today.”

Gormley was given a starting place in the Clyde attack as top scorer Peter MacDonald stepped back into the dugout and he revealed that the joint interim manager had sat down with him before kick-off:-

“Peter is a player as well as a stand-in manager, so fair play to him. He spoke to me before the game about what he wanted me to do and that he wanted to me to go out and earn my place. Hopefully I have done that… and I keep one of the managers out of the team!”

Gormley concluded by looking ahead to another very important match at Broadwood next week, with all ten clubs in the league continuing to have something to play for:-

“It’s tight at the bottom, but we just need to try and take care of ourselves. Elgin at home is a big one.

“We’ll need to put on another performance like today – more the second half than the first half. We were too deep in the first half and we had a wee go at each other at half-time about getting higher up the pitch. I thought we did that and the back three were solid for us, which helped us to get the goal at the end.”
