JAMIE McKim was looking on the bright side, despite suffering a second postponement in a row.

Burgh were set to welcome Lesmahagow to Keanie Park but a waterlogged pitch meant that the game didn't go ahead.

It was a decision that didn't surprise McKim, but he was pleased to be able to hold a training session with his players. 

He said: "I was up at Keanie Park on Friday and I knew it would be off as soon as I walked on the pitch.

"It was wasn't playable and really mushy.

"This week the weather looks better and hopefully the park will be in a good condition come Saturday.

"It's not good to have the game off because it means we can't get a run of form together.

"What it has allowed us to do is get more training time with some of the new boys we've brought in and allow them to settle in.

"Although it's frustrating not to be playing it was a good session on Saturday."

Gareth Brown is one of the players that McKim was keen to see involved in training as the defensive minded player joined on loan from Championship leaders Benburb during the week.

And the Burgh manager admits he is a player that he has had his eye on for quite some time. 

He said: "I've known of Gareth for a while.

"He lives quite near to me so I've seen him play a lot. Probably on and off over the last 10 or 12 years.

"He's a big, strong, agressive player. I've got good stength in my team and boys who can win the ball but what we lack is experience and he's got that.

"He's been here before and will be a very good addition for us.

"The deal has been in the pipeline since about November and I'm pleased to get it over the line."
