Largs Thistle skipper Scott Adam says the future is bright for the club after a positive finish to the season saw the team finish sixth in the Premier Division.

Adam has been dogged with injury over the past two seasons and underwent a knee operation in October.

Since returning to full fitness as the season neared its end, Adam played a starring role, finding the net in a crucial win away to Troon before opening the scoring in Thistle's final match of the campaign, a 5-1 win at home to Pollok.

The experienced striker, who signed for Largs in 2017, is now the longest serving player at the club and he believes next season Thistle have everything to go for.

Reflecting on the win over Pollok, he said: "It was a very good result to round off the season.

"The gaffer wanted us to go out on a high and I think he was a bit disappointed with some of our home form throughout the season.

"He had been re-iterating that he wanted us to see of the season with a top display and I think we got that.

"We knew it would be a good crowd and we wanted to put everything in it as it was our last game and no holding back and I think we got our rewards.

"Pollok are a good side and we just went at them.

"I thought they took the lead against the run of play and that is easy to know your confidence and make you feel sorry for yourself.

"We probably needed half-time and we came out in the second half all guns blazing."

While Pollok struggled at times to live up to their reputation as one of the Premier Division's big guns, the Newlandsfield Park outfit chalked up some impressive results through the course of the campaign - not least in a Scottish Cup run which included wins over Highland League Huntly and eventual League Two promotion winners Annan Athletic, before a narrow loss to Ayr in the third round - making Thisttle's win all the more impresive.

Adam said: "Sometimes you need that wee bit of luck for the equaliser from Stuart Faulds with the keeper slipping but it all came about from us being on the front foot."
Adam scored to put Largs 2-1 ahead and celebrated with a big cheer as he headed off to the supporters to share in the joy.

The West Kilbride man said: "It was brilliant to score in the last game.

"I think Will Sewell swung it it and there was a bit of indecision between the Pollok keeper and defence and they left it for one another  - and what a great feeling to do it in a game like that when it is such an important goal.

"I am desperate now to get a full pre season behind me and am fit to go again - I am feeling good and have no niggles either."

"The good thing is that we are spreading the goals out as we have plenty of options. I played upfront with Rambo (David Ramsay) and Will either side of me - and both of them can play upfront.

"I did all the dirty work and then all the young boys came on to finish the job against Pollok.

"I think when we get in that mood and play on the front foot not many teams can live with us.

"If we start on the front foot we shouldn't fear anyone."

"Reflecting on the season it has been a really good league campaign.

"Finishing sixth is great and we gave ourselves that target a few games ago but I don't think anyone would have expected us to be up there given recent seasons.

"The only disappointment was the cup runs - a team like us depends on cup runs to make your season, but it is easy when you are out the cups to become a bit disjointed and disheartened.

"But that never happened. We kept the league form going so overall a good season but could have been better.

"It is all looking positive for next season. We have the core of a good squad and realistically we shouldn't fear anybody."
