Craigmark Burntonians manager Ryan Caddis says he was thrilled with his side’s 2-1 comeback win over Irvine Victoria at the weekend.

The Mark went into the Conference A match looking to end a slide of results that saw them winless in their last four league matches.

It was not a great start at Victoria Park for the Dalmellington side as the hosts went 1-0 up in the first half.

Ross MacDougall opened the scoring for the Vics, blasting in a cut back to the top of the box from the left wing.

However, the away side rallied in the second half and it was the player manager Caddis who brought his side right back into contention.

After a nice bit of link up play he tapped in a ball across the box unmarked to level midway through the second period.

The forward then grabbed the winner late on for the Mark, firing across the goalkeeper after being played through on goal.

Caddis said: “I am over the moon with the result, especially going to Irvine Victoria who were very well organised and the pitch is very tight. So, we showed a lot of character to comeback.

“We were one nil down at half time and the players showed a lot of heart and desire to get us back into it. Then to go onto win it, I am delighted.”

The result left Craigmark fourth in the table but despite their current position at the top end of proceedings, Caddis says he has no illusions of grandeur this season.

The manager told the Advertiser: “This is my first job as a manager and it is a project.

“I am asking a lot of the players, we trying to break the mould and play a totally different way.

“They are a great squad, I put a lot of demands on them and they just keep producing for me, it is incredible.

“But we are not stupid, we know that we are punching well above our weight as we have one of the lowest budgets in the league.

“We are up there just now but I am not silly, I have played the game a long time and I know how quickly it can change.”
