James McPake thanked both the Board of Directors and the fans for their backing as pre-season training got underway over the weekend.
Five new additions have joined the club over the summer and asked how he has found that side of the job, James said, “So far it have been pretty straight forward. I mean that in the best way, I have a fantastic backroom team that have a lot of experience doing this kind of thing that are guiding me.”
“Now ultimately I have to make the final decision but with their backing along with John, Tim and the Board of Directors.”
“For example, to get Shaun Byrne out of Livingston when there were Premiership teams trying to do it as well, that was a statement from John and Tim. I didn’t for a second think that wasn’t going to be the case because they have done that continuously with this football club since they came in and that goes in tow with the fans who always back us as well.”
Season Ticket sales surpassed the 2000 mark shortly after James was appointed and have continued at a steady pace since then. James knows how vital the backing of the supporters can be both in noise and for his budget, “I think it’s important to the fans as well that they are picking up because they get to see the signings we are bring in. There is a feel good factor, the fans can see that, they can see the signings we are bringing in. We are bringing potential in, but potential with quality as well so I’m not surprised it has picked up, I’m hoping that keeps up for two reasons.”
“When that place is full, and there is a lot of fans behind us they really back us and we need that. We need to make this place a tough tough venue. It always is tough for any visiting team to come here but we want to make it as tough as it can be.”
“Also as a selfish thing for me, as the season tickets pick up, I get more players in, simple as that. That’s me being blunt but let’s get the fans behind us out there to spur us on and when we need them get them behind us and let’s get the spirit back at this football club that it is everyone together, the fans, the players, the staff, that’s what we need.”
