Largs midfield battler Simon McIntyre has new goals on his horizon for the coming season as he is relishing his Premier opportunity with Largs Thistle.

The 26 year old was given his opportunity to step up to the top flight after he caught manager Stuart Davidson's eye with some dogged displays for Neilston Juniors.
Ironically in his first season at Largs in 2019-20, McBryde ended up being the 'elder statesman' of the team during some weeks if Scott Adam was unavailable.
He has now been joined by some 'old heads' in the likes of Graham Muir and Keir Milliken to help provide some added experience to the side.
Nicknamed Sid, he is well known as a battling box to box player and has been a sturdy player in the Thistle midfield, and is a valuable asset in the team which is continuing to flourish in the new West of Scotland Premier League.

Largs and Millport Weekly News:
He said: "I am really enjoying my time at Largs Thistle - I signed from Neilston where I had been for two seasons and the opportunity came to play pre-season for Largs who were starting a re-build after the Scottish Cup final. 
"The first game I played was the friendly away to Tranent and I scored in that game and played the full 90 minutes and shortly afterwards manager Arnie (Stuart Davidson) asked me to sign."
McIntyre, who lives in Port Glasgow, started his career at Partick Thistle before going on to play for Greenock Juniors, before following the management of ex-Largs striker John Paul Dow and Marty Campbell to join Neilston.
He said: "The opportunity to move to Largs a league above was too good a chance to miss and it has worked very well ever since
"I am a box to box player and try and do as much as I can for the team, and I try and chip in with goals.
"That is one thing that Arnie is wanting to me to add to my game and contribute a little more - I got some important goals in my first season against Troon and Irvine Meadow. The goal against Meadow resulted in Largs taking the lead 2-1 - it was a critical goal and was the launchpad as we went on to win fairly comfortably 4-1. It was a good goal to get as it swung the game in our favour."
McIntyre noticed a big difference in stepping up to the Premier and said: "The tempo was a lot quicker and the quality of the player you were coming up against was top notch. Training is very intense and Arnie likes us to be on the ball and all the boys enjoy it."
Speaking about being the elder statesman in the side at times during his first season at Barrfields, McIntyre said: "It was quite strange - quite often I had been the youngest player in some of the previous clubs I had been at. Thistle was one of the youngest sides I have ever been involved with - you could basically have called me a veteran at 25!
"It certainly kept you on your toes and all the young boys were very good so we did really well to get some big wins at Clydebank and Glenafton in the West of Scotland Cup."
McIntyre is now glad that the likes of Muir and Milliken have joined up to shoulder the burden, so to speak, while Largs also benefit from having a top striker in captain Scott Adam.

Largs and Millport Weekly News:
He said: "I remember from the first training session you could see what type of striker Scott Adam is - he was scoring every week and was at the top of the goalscoring charts in February 2020 - you could say it was Scott's goals that helped propel us and helped keep us in the Premier League."
The start of this season was a 'whirlwind' - and McIntyre wondered with some well known clubs missing such as Auchinleck and Glens - whether there would be the same competitive feeling to the action without the fans.
His thoughts were quickly dispelled within five minutes of the opening clash versus Bankies at Barrfields as Laurie McMaster was sent off.
McBryde said: "From the first whistle it was a competitive game. Laurie's dismissal was questionable - it was a little bit high but he did get the ball and even the Clydebank manager said after the game that we were hard done by."
Thistle's 4-1 win at home to Cumbernauld set the club on a good unbeaten run with the highlight being the 2-1 win away at Kilwinning.
McBryde said: "It was a terrific performance to beat the Buffs. I think we were worth winners and the Kilwinning player who was sent off - that all came about from our intensity and everyone played their part in that game before Jack Haggerty grabbed that sensational winner."
The combative midfield man reckons that Arnie is building some special at Largs with the young team beginning to show signs of blossoming this season.
"The victory against Blantyre was a really good display as they were in the top four. We got the draw against Beith too which we could have won. It was a real shame the season was stopped - we just have to hope we can get back to some kind of normality soon and now with the vaccines arriving there is light at the end of the tunnel."
