Stranraer FC: Board Continue to Back Brian Reid

Stranraer FC have vowed to back Brian Reid, despite recent results having left the club bottom of League One.

The club’s current position and form have been discussed with the manager, and the committee have raised their concerns.

Chairman Iain Dougan said: “We have spoken to the manager and the assistant manager about the position and any problems that they see at the moment”.

Saturday’s 2-1 home defeat to Airdrie, coupled with Stenhousemuir’s 2-0 victory away to Peterhead saw the club fall to the bottom of the league.

The Blues have failed to win in their last four league matches, and have won just one of their last eight.

The Chairman does not feel it is time to panic. He said: “Three wins and it’s a totally different league.

“It’s not as if we’re cut adrift, we’re not a million miles away from the central pack.”

The Blues finished fourth in League One last season, and lost to Ayr United in the promotion playoff final.

This came despite the club being bottom at Christmas, and the club feel that this shows the manager can turn things around.

The club are hoping to make signings in January to help improve their league position, and Reid has a number of targets in mind.

Dougan confirmed that the manager has been working hard to identify signing targets.

He added: “Until the window opens, we won’t know how successful we are in getting these players in”.

    It’s stand up and be counted time for the Blues – players and management. A wee club but a precious one to its fans and we want to see passion and application.
