Renfrew manager Jimmy Quigley admits he is keen to add more firepower to his squad ahead of the new season.

Quigley will be reunited with his players at pre-season training on Monday as they start preparations for another campaign in the First Division of the West of Scotland Football League.

It was the 'goals for' column that made for a nervy end to the 2023/24 season for the New Western Park side, who found the net just 45 times in 30 games.

Keeping the ball out at the other end wasn’t a major problem, as Renfrew boasted one of the best defensive records in the division.

Quigley has already added some new faces to the squad and plans to bring in more recruits in the weeks ahead.

He told Gazette Sport: “Everyone from last season has stayed, apart from Cammy Kerr, who joined Kilwinning, Jason Andrew, who left to get more game time, and both goalkeepers we had to bring in as a result of Danny McLeay getting injured.

“Coming in, we have Stuart Fyfe, from Johnstone Burgh, Fraser Sheridan, from Ashfield, and Aaron Chauhdry, from Kilsyth Rangers.

“We struggled for goals last season, so I’m actively looking to bring in another striker to help the boys up top.

“In goals against, we were sixth in the league, so we were decent at keeping the ball out of the net, but we couldn’t score. We were third bottom in terms of goals for.

“We did have players leaving and guys getting injured that did play a part but we’re looking to strengthen that area to take the pressure off the guys at the back as well.

"If we score more goals, we’ll finish a lot higher this season.”

Renfrew will test themselves against three Premier Division sides in pre-season, as well as taking on three teams from further down the divisions.

Quigley admits he trusts his players to return in good shape before their fixtures start at the end of the month.

He added: “The boys look after themselves now, it’s not like years ago when you were running up and down hills in pre-season.

“We’ll get some sessions in and then start looking at how we want to approach the season and integrating the new boys.

“We’ve got friendlies against three teams from the league above, with St Cadoc's, Gartcairn and Benburb, and then we’ve also got Easterhouse, Glenvale and Threave Rovers, which gives us six friendlies.

“We’ll have five or six sessions before our first friendly and we start getting the legs moving properly.”
