SAUCHIE'S Mark Finlayson was delighted to score a brace in Saturday’s win over Edinburgh University – and admitted he was loving life playing on the wing.

The former Falkirk man was a constant thorn in the capital club’s side and as he tormented their full back all day.

The 20-year-old notched a brace, with Terry Hewitt and David Cross also getting in on the action in a stunning performance from the East of Scotland League side.

He told Advertiser Sport: “I am over the moon as I don’t score a lot.

“I am glad to get two, but should have had a few more as well.

“I’ve always preferred attacking to defending. So, I really appreciate the coaching staff for giving me a chance to play higher up.

“I don’t know how long it will last as we’ve had a few injuries and that’s why I’ve had the chance.

“But, it doesn’t matter whether I’m playing left back or left wing, I am always going to attack as much as I can.”

The former Scotland youth internationalist has spent most of the season in defence. But, when asked where he preferred to play, he admitted he saw himself as a winger.

And despite notching two-goals, Finlayson was left frustrated at failing to secure his hat trick.

He said: “I think I could have had about four or five before I even scored the first one.

“But, obviously I am happy to just score the two as I don’t score a lot.”

The win was arguably Sauchie’s most impressive of the season and Finlayson said it was no shock to him that they were able to brush aside supposedly superior opposition.

He added: “We have shown at times this season that we are capable of scoring three or four goals.

“We’re got the players who can create a lot of chances and score a lot of goals and they we are good at the back as well.

“We only train twice a week but are so well organised as a team.

“Wherever anyone is asked to play they do it because football is a team game.

“We’re tight as a team and we are always going to help each other out.”
