FRASER DUNCAN has wasted little time in getting the Wee County band back together and he is sure Sauchie will soon be hitting the right notes.

It's been quite a week for the club legend on his return to Beechwood Park.

First, he brought former assistant Davie Beaton back into the fold, then he watched his Reds push league leaders Bo'ness United close on Saturday.

Now, he is moving quickly to strengthen his side as he revealed he was on the cusp of adding two players before they return to action.

The return of Alloa Athletic hero Beaton, who was Duncan's right-hand man when the pair secured back-to-back promotions and the East of Scotland Cup during their previous spell at the helm, has been heralded as a huge boost to the Beechwood Park side.

"It's good to have Davie back and he will help get us back to the level where we want to be," Duncan told Advertiser Sport.

"He does a lot of good stuff in training and he is excellent for the players, especially the guys who play centre back.

"That was his position and he will speak to the guys and make sure they know what we require from them.

"He will help push them forward and organisation-wise Davie is very good and will bring that to the club.

"He demands high levels of effort and professionalism and that comes with Davie.

"I am very pleased to have him back onboard and I really excited to be back working with him."

Beaton will assist Duncan with Darren Cummings and Darren Petrie remaining as part of the backroom staff following their spell as co-caretaker managers.

It's hoped the move behind the scenes will give the rookie coaches time to learn their trade and Duncan is looking forward to watching Beaton take them under his wing.

Duncan said: "It will work really well with us and the Darrens and you could see already on Saturday that it was working really well with the four us.

"I was getting input from Davie and also input from them and we were coming to common conclusions of how to fix things.

"That's great and it's what teamwork is all about.

"I've said to the Darrens to see Davie as a learning curve.

"Davie and I aren't going to be here for a long time and it's a case of them learning as much as they can before they feel they are in a position to take on more themselves."
