The head of Irvine Vics says St. Cadoc’s Glens are in disguise as he assists the players after a heavy loss
Brian McLuckie insisted that there was no shame Irvine Vics lost 5-0 to St Cadoc’s – as the Glasgow-based team is Glenafton in disguise.
The Westenders boss believes last weekend’s scorers’ list flattered the star-studded hosts – a team he believes would be a force in the WoSFL Premier League, regardless of Conference B.
He said, “I was busy on Saturday and Sunday answering people who said we were going to hammer again.

“The truth is they have 11 players who were in the Premier League with Glenafton last year while we have a group of young enthusiastic boys and a new loaner.
“The highlights can be seen on Youtube and I think anyone who sees them would see how well we fought for a large part of the game.
“We actually had better chances in the first half, we hit the woodwork and created some really good chances.
“We only went into the break 1-0 and I was thrilled with our performance.
“We were punished for our own mistakes in the second half, but that’s exactly what happens when you play high-profile players. All my goalkeeper had to do was get the ball out of the net five times while his goalkeeper had to make four or five saves. “
Vics host Port Glasgow this afternoon – three weeks after losing the second leg 5-1.
McLuckie insisted, “We’re constantly improving.”
