Peterhead get fitness boost in Brechin bounce game

Wed 11 Sep 2019

Peterhead manager Jim McInally was delighted that Jamie Stevenson came through a bounce game against Brechin City at the weekend after injury with the 35 year old pencilled in for a competitive comeback against Raith Rovers on Saturday.

The Blue Toon drew 1-1 with the Glebe Park side who had their new manager Mark Wilson looking on with Ben Armour grabbing the goal for McInally’s side and Stevenson coming through the game unscathed.

The versatile Stevenson has been out of action since being injured against Formartine United in the Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer Cup a month ago and McInally said: “Jamie played for a good part of the 90 minutes and there has been no reaction. He will be back in my plans for the weekend against a Raith Rovers team who will be on a high after beating Falkirk at the weekend.”

“Our new signings David Ferguson and Ryan Conroy as well as Gary Fraser who has been carrying a knock all got 90 minutes under their belt as well, so it was a worthwhile exercise.”
