NEILSTON co-boss Chris Cameron isn’t anticipating a busy summer on the transfer front at Brig O’Lea after last season’s impressive showing in the West of Scotland Football League.

The Farmer’s Boys won all eight of their fixtures in Conference B. However, with promotion not on offer due to the pandemic, Neilston will be hoping they can replicate that form when it matters this season.

Cameron’s side returned to the training pitch on Monday to take part in a full-contact session for the first time since December after restrictions on outdoor group activity were lifted, and he revealed details of a new signing as well as how many more players he is looking to add alongside right-hand man Derek Carson.

He told Barrhead Sport: “We were delighted with the squad we put together last season and we were unfortunate that the league wasn’t going ahead as planned. So our plan was always to keep as many of that group together as possible and add one or two.

“We’ve lost a couple of lads who were looking for more game time which is fair and we’ll look to replace them.

“We’ve already signed a lad from Johnstone Burgh, Robbie McCutcheon, who will give us more at the back. He can play in any position across the backline and is predominantly a centre-half. He’ll be a great addition and he’s a good lad as well.

“We brought in Darren Jones at the back end of last season before lockdown hit straight away so he hadn’t seen the boys and was just meeting them for the first-time last week. He’ll be another really good addition.

“We’ll look to add another two or three, one will be a goalkeeper, and that’s us.”

The former Neilston midfielder admits getting business done early was key and was thrilled to hold on to Conor Bolger after an outstanding first season in the senior team.

Cameron added: “We’ve got four or five young lads who have come into the group and into the starting eleven and they’ll stay there, as long as they perform. We were really keen to tie all the young boys down and look to the future as well.

“Conor was one of them, he did really well but there’s still plenty more to come.

“He was frustrated with a lot of performance, as daft as it sounds there was one game where he got a hat-trick and it was probably his poorest game of the season.

“He’s the type of guy that will always create chances and always score goals if he can just add consistency.”
