JAMIE LONGWORTH insists the misery of last season’s semi-final play-off defeat will help them mount a Third Division title charge next term.
The Spiders striker who bagged 20 league goals admits the disappointment of the defeat to Stranraer will only make them stronger.
After signing on at Hampden for the next campaign, Longworth is delighted to see the bulk of the squad follow his lead.
He said: “Losing the play-off will be a valuable experience as we have a young squad who will learn from it. We want to use that memory to drive us on next season as it wasn’t pleasant and that is what football can do to you.
“I was asked to sign on again back in April and I didn’t need to be asked twice.
“The majority of the squad have all followed suit so we have the basis of a quality group who I believe can go on and do well.
“We’ve lost Martin McBride who has gone to London to work which is a blow but Michael Keenan is arriving from Arthurlie and he’s exactly the type of addition we need.
“There’s no doubt we are heading in the right direction and we want to go a step further next term.”
