Peterhead manager Jim McInally has praised his club after the Blue Toon reached the first final in their history by beating Queens Park.

He believes everyone at the club deserves credit after his men reached the Petrofac Training Cup final.

McInally said: “Getting to the final is for everyone at the club.

“The Chairman, the Directors, we have some terrific people at the club and they do a great job bringing in money to keep us going.

“We overspend against what we bring in and the income generated by cup runs is important and I am trying to repay these people.

“They look after everyone really well.

“They look after the opposition which is something that goes unnoticed, they are terrific especially in these days of cutbacks where you are lucky to get a tray of sandwiches at away games but teams get a three course meal at Balmoor so they are a great club.

“I have been at Peterhead for a while now and I have got to know the community.

“Most of the town support Rangers so if they make it to the final maybe we could play it in Aberdeen.”

The Peterhead boss also praised goalscorer Rory McAllister.

McInally said: “I still haven’t had any phone calls about Rory.

“I have tried to get rid of him.

“For his own sake I have talked to other Managers including Jackie McNamara when he was at Dundee United about taking him for a week’s training.

“Ally McCoist as well when Rangers were in the same division as us and I think he would have scored a barrel load for them but obviously nobody thinks I know what I am talking about!”
