IT was standing room only on Sunday when new Irvine Meadow manager Ross Wilson got together with supporters for a special meeting.

A Meet The Manager session was held at the Social Club, with 70 people packing in to hear Wilson, who steered former club Kello Rovers to promotion in his first season, outline his hopes for the future.

Meadow assistant boss John Quinn, who was with Wilson in Kirkconnel last season, was also involved in the meeting.

Chairman Robert Jeffrey said: "It was a full house on Sunday and the meeting was a success. Ross spoke really well and told the audience about his football background, what he had done before joining Irvine Meadow, and how he was enjoying working at the club."

The manager, who took charge in June, also fielded a number of questions from supporters on a broad range of subjects, including tactics and said that he was an advocate of playing two upfront, however that could be changed depending on the particular game they were involved in.

Wilson also said he was delighted with the signings made so far as he looks to strengthen the squad and did not rule out adding a couple of other players to the squad in time for the Ardagh Glass League Cup campaign in August.

The new boss has made no secret of his determination to take Meadow back to the top level of the game and seems excited by the challenge.
