Wilson on way back for team

INVERURIE Locos’ captain Tommy Wilson has had a frustrating time lately, having to be on the sidelines as a troublesome back injury has kept him out of the squad at a time when his team are beginning to string decent results together again.

However Wilson, who has just recently completed his Testimonial Season with a speakers afternoon at Inverurie Town Hall, had good news for Locos fans at the end of Locos’ 1-0 win at Princes Royal Park.

Tommy said, “I’ve got my injection and back to full training this week, doing all the running so hopefully I’ll not be far away. The boys have done well, we have a really strong squad and spirit is good in the camp. I just want to be fit and back training again. It’s always frustrating as I enjoy my football

“We want to make a challenge in every Cup we play in and of course the League. It’s always good to come to Banff where there’s a good surface. It was good in the warm up but the weather changed”

And he says the pyramid proposals offer great hope to ambitious clubs. Having been at Celtic at the same time as the likes of current Aston Villa keeper Shay Given and come through his Boys Club football alongside new Dons signing Gavin Rae and ex SPL forward, his close pal Dennis Wyness, Wilson knows what it’s like to aim high in football

He says ambitious clubs should see the plans as a push to progression:

“There are a lot of decent teams in the League. If teams get to go up in the pyramid then I’m all for it”
