Craigan: Senior players set the tone

Tuesday, September 12, 2017

Under-20s boss Stephen Craigan praised his side after their 3-0 victory over Partick Thistle in the Development League.

The victory, which keeps the Steelmen top of the table, see’s the youngsters extend their unbeaten start to the league season to four games.

And Craigan reflected on the performance as he spoke to MFC TV at full time.

I thought there were so many good things about it tonight. We had five senior players playing which was the manager’s choice and that’s excellent.

He said: “I thought there were so many good things about it tonight. We had five senior players playing which was the manager’s choice and that’s excellent.

“But I said to them back at Fir Park to go out there and set the tempo and do the young players justice who aren’t getting a game tonight.”

He added: “Go and do it by your application and by your attitude, not that we’ve ever had issues with people dropping down but just because it was boys who’ve never played 20s before you’re always wary if they want to be here or not.

“But I thought they were terrific, they really set the tone for us.”
