Discussions not starting until League 1 football is secured

Apr 26, 2021

Peterhead manager Jim McInally is holding fire on discussions over new contracts with his squad until it is confirmed that the Blue Toon will be playing League 1 football next season. A fantastic 3-0 victory over Clyde on Saturday has taken the Balmoor team to within a point of avoiding the relegation play-offs with manager McInally remaining focused on games until that point, at least, has been secured.

Jim said: “There is a scenario where Clyde and Dumbarton could both catch us so nothing has been achieved as yet. We have built virtually a new squad this season and I am pleased with what i have seen from the boys. There is a good spirit in the squad and I am very keen to have discussions about next season.”

“However it would be wrong of me to tie the club and players to something and then see things change considerably. The boys know the position and hopefully we will get what we need at East Fife on Thursday and we can move things along.”
