NEILSTON co-boss Chris Cameron wants youngster Conor Bolger to add consistency to his game after a red hot start to life as a Farmer’s Boy.

Bolger stepped up to the Senior team this season after impressing in cameos as a development player in the last campaign.

The winger had an impressive pre-season which included goals against Kilbirnie Ladeside and Arthurlie, and has taken that form into the competitive action as he netted in last week’s win over title favourites St Cadocs, which Cameron wants to see on a regular basis.

He told Barrhead Sport: “Conor has had some really good performances and in a couple of our games he has kind of dipped his levels, which you are going to get with the young lad maybe having a wee bit of inconsistency.

“He offers us a real threat on the break with his pace and his willingness to go by players.

“He was excellent against St Cadocs last week and we just need to drill that into him that that’s the levels he’s got to now and he can’t drop below them.”

Neilston weren’t in action at the weekend as attention now turns to Saturday’s clash with Gartcairn.

Cameron said: “It’s unfortunate we didn’t have a game this Saturday as we were the team with the free week which is frustrating but it just meant last
Saturday was a good result to take into this break.

“We’ve got Gartcairn this Saturday who are probably the other favourites for the league and the other team spending a lot of money so it’s a great result to take into a game like that, knowing that if we can go and pick up three points then we’ve effectively beaten the two favourites for the league.”

Neilston have also been gifted a match ball by West of Scotland Football League officials after getting themselves in the history books.

Euan Clark’s header in the 6-0 win over Lugar Boswell Thistle on the opening day of the campaign was the first goal scored in the new setup.
The WoSFL are awarding the same incentive for any player who is to net a hattrick this season.

Meanwhile, the club have confirmed that goalkeeper James Digney and striker Craig Patterson have both left the club by mutual consent. A statement said: “Both players have had several spells at Brig O’Lea and we wish them both all the best for the future.”
