Naisy: We’re continuing to build

22 June 2023

Makenzie Kirk bagged four goals and Bailey Dall was also on the scoresheet as the Wee Jambos made it three home wins on the trot in what was another dominant performance from the men in maroon.

Speaking to the Official Hearts Website at full-time, Naismith said:

“The last couple of games have given the boys confidence. The biggest thing in here is trying to get that consistency, but when we’re on it we’re really good.

“A lot of our stuff was good. How we played, how we moved the ball, but also out of possession we were very aggressive, and we didn’t allow them to have the ball. But when we couldn’t press we had a good structure behind the ball and that made it difficult for them. So, it was a really good day.

“We are obviously playing catch-up because some of our games have been called off. But in some ways, it works as the conditions are slightly better now and the boys are on a run of good performances and results.

“Some of the younger boys are now stepping in and contributing so it’s a good way to end. So, if we can keep that momentum going between now and the end of the season and keep picking up good results and playing well, the boys will review this season as a real positive.

“If you look back after that initial settling in period we had, at our performances, our results and what we’ve taken from each game, it shows we would be right at the top end of the table and competing much higher up. But that’s always going to happen with this being our first season in the Lowland League and the majority of the boys will hopefully stay on to next season and we will hopefully have an improvement in that.”

The Wee Jambos are back in action on Tuesday night as they welcome Open Goal Broomhill to Ferguson Park. Kick-off is 19:45.
