COLE MCKINNON is hoping he can break into the Reserve team after featuring in tonight’s 2-1 victory against Berwick Rangers in the Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer Cup.
The 16-year-old came on near the end of the match, making is Challenge Cup debut, and is aiming for more game time in the Development side.
He said: “It was very good to come on in the game for the reserves and it lets my experience build up and hopefully get more games in this cup.
“I travelled down to Mansfield as well with the Reserves so it is a good experience to go down and watch and learn by watching to see what I need to do next to get into the squad so it is really good.
“My aim is to play more in the Reserves and hopefully push on and take one of the Reserves players jerseys.”
McKinnon was pleased with how Rangers saw out the game after Berwick got a goal back with 20 minutes to go.
“I was a bit scared at the start because I thought after them scoring like why can they not go on and get a second goal but I think we kept the ball well after they scored and just managed to see the game through to the last whistle.
“The next round will be tough especially because it is another away game as well it’ll be a long journey there but hopefully we can just go on and win the game again.”
