KILWINNING Rangers boss Chris Strain says he wants to see “relentless improvement” from his squad as the club prepares to return to training next week.

Clubs in the new West of Scotland Football League will be able to resume training from Monday, July 20, provided they meet strict protocol.

Last season Kilwinning Rangers were top of the West Region Premiership before the season was ended prematurely due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Despite, being 12 points off the Buffs, Auchinleck Talbot, were awarded the title based on points per game with Talbot having nine games in hand.

After the disappointment of not being able to complete the league last season, Buffs gaffer Strain says he is hoping to build on the momentum his squad built.

He said: “I am looking forward to getting everyone back training again. We have a good squad that are willing to build on what they learned last year. For us it’s about evolution rather than revolution.

“We have brought in a few new players that will add to the competition. For me it’s important to always go forwards and remain focussed on improving individually and collectively.

“The results will dictate where we finish but it’s not about about targeting a set number of games to win it’s about relentless improvement. The result will come at the end of the process but that process is for us to keep improving.”
