ELATED Ardrossan Winton Rovers boss Stevie Wilson praised returning striker Jamie McKenna after he came off the bench to help secure a vital victory.

Winton defeated Lesmahagow 3-2 away from home to leave them in second place in League One on 40 points, just one behind leaders Lanark United, over whom they have a game in hand. McKenna returned from Premiership Largs Thistle after a successful spell at Winton, which saw him score 45 goals in two seasons.

Wilson said: “It was great to have Jamie back as he knows the way to goal and we have four really good strikers at the club.

He did really well here before and wanted a shot at the Premiership.

That was one our best performances of the season and it was a deserved win. We have taken 25 of our last 30 points which is a good run.

“But we can’t get carried away, we will see how things are going in the next few games.”

Winton on Saturday host third bottom Wishaw.

Wilson said:”They are fighting for their lives but we’re at home and must aim to take three points.”

Meanwhile the new Beith Juniors management team of Bryan Young, assisted by Derek McCulloch and Chris Friel, took charge for training at Bellsdale Park on Monday.

Talbot legend ‘Butch’ Young was one of the most decorated players in Junior Football.

McCulloch needs no introduction to the Mighty fans, attaining legendary status at Bellsdale Park, and Chris worked with Butch coaching Pollok Youths.
