av Down The Divisions | Publicerades 4/16/2021

IT’S mind over matter this week as we look at how players can get a psychological edge. If you’re looking for him on instagram, John Johnstone is The Football Mindset. He’s helped the likes of John Souttar, Chris Cadden and Greg Docherty get mentally ready for action at the top end of the game. But John reckons his methods can be applied to ANY level of football. As a player at Tranent Juniors he admits he wasn’t up to much – but if he’d known then what he knows now then things might have been a bit different. John joins us on the show this week and will talk about some of the techniques you can use to get ahead of your opponent when the game returns.  And talking of when the game returns, West of Scotland League fixture secretary Kennie Young is back to tell us exactly when they plan to start their new season WITH fans – and we also hear his and Paul's views on the proposals put forward by Ardrossan Winton Rovers.
