Peterhead manager Jim McInally was delighted after seeing his side win their first pre-season friendly 4-0.

He said "It was our first game and a good workout. We got a lot from it, but the main thing is the fitness. 

"The squad is shaping up and we're not far away. We had a couple of trialists today and we'll speak to them, and I hope to tie up a couple of loan signings this week.

"We might not have big numbers but I' happy with what we've got. There's a lot of quality there."

In terms of the season ahead, McInally is setting his sights high. 

"If you're in something you have to try to win it," he concluded. "If you come up short, that's life, but I think we're in a good place."
