Let’s get the lows out of the way first. We lost to Queen’s Park FC and we are now out of the Irn-Bru Cup.
From a personal perspective there were plenty of positives from the day. As far as the game itself is concerned, I was thrilled for Joash Nembhard as he started, looked good and smashed home the equaliser with the last kick of open play.
I remember when he first came to the club on trial. You see lots of players come – and mostly go – so it was nice when he signed a contract. He’s another of the players that has excellent support from his family and it was nice to meet his dad at the Queen’s Park game.
Talking of players going – and in this case coming – it was great to see Steve Saunders, Rachael and the children at the match. I got on very well with them when Steve was at Park Hall and that’s continued now that he’s at Livingston.
Manchester City, Oldham Athletic and Bury fans will need no reminding of who Steve Redmond is. The father of our very own Danny, we interviewed him outside the ground, so watch out for that via our social media platforms.
If you were at the Queen’s Park game then you will probably have seen the video production on the big screen at The Venue. What we’re doing is creating a fan zone around the matches, developing fan engagement in the build-up before kick-off. It’s going very well.
Finally, the memorabilia collection that follows my personal journey in the world of football received a very nice addition. A signed Queen’s Park shirt has now joined the gang. The shirts alone that I have are very impressive, never mind the other items.
