DAVID CROSS admitted his future was still up in the air as Sauchie wait to discover their league fate.

The Reds finished the best sixth placed side in the East of Scotland conferences as they narrowly finished below Crossgates Primrose.

Despite that disappointment, Sauchie may still secure a place in next season's newly formed Superleague, but are waiting on official confirmation from league bosses.

Cross, 24, has proven a hit in the Wee County since his switch last summer and his consistent performances were rewarded as he was crowned Sauchie's Players' Player of the Year.

And the defender feels he and manager Iain Diack will wait until discovering which league they will be playing their football in before sorting out his future.

He said: "The manager has said we will wait and see what Sauchie's fate is before sorting out contracts for boys for next season.

"We'll wait and see what happens and see what league we are in and then sort it out.

"But there are no definite plans in place and will see what the manager has to say then.

"I enjoyed the season, and if you're enjoying your football that's the main thing."

Sauchie's season came to an end on Saturday with a 2-1 defeat to Newtongrange Star in the King Cup and Cross revealed the squad were stuck in limbo as the promotion champagne has been put on ice for now.

Cross said: "It's annoying because you kinda want to celebrate what's been a good end to the season, but you don't know what's happening.

"You actually don't know how to feel at the end of the season.

"I feel we should have been better and already secured promotion. But I suppose it won't matter if we get up.

"It is frustrating because I felt we outplayed Crossgates over the two games, even although we got beat in one.

"It will be annoying if we eventually don't get up as we should have taken more points off them."

Despite the frustration over the wait, Cross was delighted to be chosen by his team-mates as their Player of the Year.

He added: "I was buzzing about it and feel getting something off your team-mates means a lot more than getting it from others.

"It's quite special to get it from the players you are playing with and training every week. It just meant a lot to me."
