players, staff and supporters at Stenhousemuir have had their patience tested in the past fortnight as two consecutive league matches have been cancelled due to poor weather.

But one man who’s not been stressing due to the call-offs is manager Martyn Corrigan.

The former Motherwell stalwart has been involved in professional football long enough to know that you can only play the hand you’ve been dealt.

The Warriors boss has been in busy in the transfer market in recent weeks, bringing in midfield veterans Marc Corcoran and David Rowson to add some Premier League experience to his squad, as well as some youthful enthusiasim in the shape of loan singing Jamie Reid from Dundee.

With three new players needing to familiarise themselves with their new teammates, a fortnight without the pressures of a league match was by no means a disaster.

Corrigan said: “We’re obviously eager to return to action against Arbroath on Saturday, but the past fortnight has not been wasted.

“It’s allowed the new guys to settle in and I’ve been very impressed with them so far.”

Stenny will host Paul Sheerin’s men at Ochilview and will be looking to return to winning ways against the Angus side, having been held 2-2 last time the two teams met at Gayfield - a game Corrigan feels they should have won.

Meanwhile, young Stenhousemuir players Kieran Anderson, Ross Brash, Alan Lawson and Jack Hamilton have each joined a junior side on loan until the end of the season.

They will continue to train with the Warriors as well with their respective junior sides.

Corrigan is eager for the players to gain as much match experience as possible.
