Craig Robertson, who joined Stirling County’s Super6 squad last year, commented,
“I’m looking forward to the season ahead – last season was good and there were lots of good relationships built within the squad as well as around the club that have continued into pre-season.
The board are making a big effort behind the scenes to put everything in place to drive the club forward which has been great to see.
The addition of a number of familiar faces has been great and there are also a few new guys who have fitted in seamlessly. That can only be a good thing for the atmosphere around the place as we build throughout the year.
It’ll be good to see how we put the positive start to pre-season into the games throughout the Sprint Series as we look to try different things out as a team to what we did last year.
Looking back on last year’s performance, although we were happy overall, we felt that we could have done better to put ourselves into the top two to compete for the Super6 championship. I know that’s certainly the aim for us this year.”
Logan Trotter, who has played in Stirling County’s Super6 team since the inaugural season, said,
“Last season was a very up-down season. On the whole I felt it was positive, however, I think as a team we could have done better and competed for 1st or 2nd place.
We had games where we played extremely well and games in which we let ourselves down.
I feel last season has put us in good shape to build and continue progressing this season.
We have a strong core that can push the team to where we need to be ahead of the first game of the season, with a good blend of youth and experience.
I feel with our group there’s no reason we can’t perform every week and compete for that top spot and finish on top, come the end of the season!”
With the new season just a few days away, Stirling County’s first fixture will take place on Saturday 16th April at Myreside against Watsonians – kick off 2pm.
Tickets can be purchased at the gate on the day (cash or card) or online via Citizen tickets.
