Warriors new boy Marc Corcoran thinks his time at Ochilview should be plain sailing thanks to the number of old mates at the club.

The 32-year-old, a qualified marine biologist, has made a positive start to his Stenhousemuir career and is already looking forward to Saturday’s game away to league leaders Queen of the South.

“I enjoyed my debut and I think we were worthy winners,” he told Heraldsport.

“I know a few of the lads from my time with other teams and knew Marty Corrigan and Bryan Hodge from my Partick days.

“When he gave me the chance to come here I was delighted to take it.

“I was doing well in Dingwall, but got a bad injury and was out for a few months and I was originally coming here on loan to get some game time.

“The situation changed though, and I’ve signed until the end of the season. I’m looking forward to trying to get us to the play-offs and then take it from there.”

Corcoran moved from junior team Linlithgow Rose to Hamilton, before joining St Mirren full-time. He evenutally went back to Hamilton, moved to Partick and then joined Ross County from whence he brings a wealth of experience to Ochilview.

As well as Corrigan and Hodge, the front man has played with Rowson, Kean, Greg Ross and Darren Smith during his senior career.

He added: “Knowing a lot of the players has made it quite easy to settle in and the rest are a good bunch.

“It’s also a good set-up here and I’m looking forward to the rest of the season, but at my age I’ll need to start thinking about a job in the summer.

“I enjoyed the game today. I thought we played quite well and passed the ball about well.

“We thought we should have been further in front at half time, but it was a bit scrappier in the second half.

“We were a goal up though, and just needed not to concede. To be fair we also had a few other chances and I don’t think they had any so we deserved to win the game.”

Meanwhile, Stenhousemuir will travel south this weekend to face run-away leage leaders Queen of the South, aiming to go one better than their last result in Dumfries.

The Warriors drew 2-2 at Palmerston in October.

Martyn Corrigan has a full squad to choose from with no new injury worries.
