RENFREW co-manager Colin Clark has told his players not to take their foot off the gas after their perfect start to the league campaign.

Kieran Maxwell’s late strike gave the New Western Park side a 3-2 win at Cumbernauld United, giving Renfrew back to backs wins to open the Super League First Division.

After going winless for six games at the start of last season and recovering to finish comfortably in mid table, Clark has praised his side for racing out of the traps but warned them not to get ahead of themselves so early in the season.

He said: “We started last year getting with one point from the first six games so to get six out of six is a brilliant start.

“We won’t get carried away but it was a big win on Saturday, Cumbernauld are a team who will think they’ll be in the mix for promotion.

“It’s a very good start and we have to try and maintain it.”

Frew are still in the hunt for some early season silverware as they await confirmation of their Sectional League Cup semi-final. Forth Wanderers were due to face Pollok in the final quarter-final on Monday, but the match was postponed, the winners will face Renfrew in the semi.

After scraping through last week’s quarter final against Central District Second Division side Gartcairn, Frew went through on penalties after having two men sent off, Clark urged Frew not to let the opportunity pass them by.

He said: “To be in a semi-final is a big opportunity for us. It won’t be an easy tie whoever it is we get. It might cause us some problems logistically because neither have floodlights, it might be a bit of battle to beat the fading light and getting all our boys to Forth or Pollok for a 6.30pm kick-off or even earlier could be problematic.”

Striker Jamie Docherty netted Renfrew’s other two goals on Saturday, following on from his hat-trick in the league opener against Rutherglen Glencairn.

Clark has been delighted with the impact of the former Arthurlie and Pollok forward since his arrival in the summer.

He said: “He’s flying. His first goal on Saturday he’s caught the goalkeeper out at the near post with a great piece of ingenuity from him.

“His second goal he’s took a great first touch and finished it with his second. He was disappointed to be left out on Wednesday after scoring a hat-trick, which any striker would be, but he has responded in the right manner.”
