RENFREW co-manager Colin Clark admits to being impressed by his side’s showings in the Sectional League Cup, but warned Frew still have a long way to go.

The New Western Park side started their Sectional League Cup campaign with a thumping 5-1 win over Renfrewshire rivals Johnstone Burgh last Wednesday, before a 1-0 win at Vale of Leven on Saturday.

With Clark’s men in pole position to qualify from the group and advance to the knockout stages, with Port Glasgow and Greenock Juniors still to play, the manager is pleased with the positive early signs shown by his squad.

He said: “We beat Burgh 5-1 and I think it was deserved. Against Vale of Leven the second half was much better, we had made a few changes for that game because we are treating it as an extended pre-season.

“We have to give players a run out. It was important to get another win and it never looked like we wouldn’t win the game.”

After a summer of upheaval behind the scenes at New Western Park, Clark admitted he and fellow co-boss Martin Ferry were a bit behind where they would expect to be in regards to player recruitment.

The Renfrew committee completely changed at an AGM in May, before changing again after an EGM was called last month.

While confusion reigned at New Western Park as to the running of the club amidst such uncertainty, Clark and Ferry were unable to carry out the type of planning and preparation they normally would at that time of year.

However, Clark revealed he expects to complete three signings this week and hopes to add two further players to the squad in the coming weeks.

He said: “We are still a few weeks behind where we wanted to be with player recruitment but we’ve signed a squad of players and we’ll see where we can go.

“We want to try and strengthen again. We have 15 signed just now, there are three who have agreed to sign we just haven’t completed the formalities yet, that should be done this week.

“Then we’d like to add another couple to that.”
