Nicol fitting in nicely at the Jacks

Jacks new Scottish striker Daryl Nicol has fitted in nicely since he emigrated from his homeland last month, and he has started to show what a good player he is bagging three goals in four games.


The 26-year-old, who signed for the Jacks from Scottish Highland Premier League side Cove Rangers, said last week’s win was a great effort in terrible football conditions. “It was an absolute thriller in difficult conditions as well, especially with the rain and swirling wind, but I’m used to that sort of weather back in Scotland,” he said. “But the lads dug in deep and I defiantly thought we deserved the win.

“Two goals up we were cruising, but I can’t believe the penalty the referee gave them, but it gave them a lift and put them back into the game, but the character we showed to get the winner late in the game was fantastic, a cracking game to watch for the supporters and it puts us back in the mix.”

Nicol said things are going well at the Jacks and he said the club has a great group and there is a great deal of character within the group. “Obviously I wasn’t here at the start of the season, but there is defiantly character in this team, but like I said over the piece we really did deserve the win,” he said.

“I was delighted to put us 1-0 up at half time, I saw the keeper off his line and scored, and a good ball from Tommy sent clear for the second and I thought we would then run away with it and the ref gives them an opportunity to get back in the game and it was backs against the wall, but we dug in and thoroughly deserved the win.”
