There’s no need for you to say you’re sorry

Oct 2, 2020

Peterhead manager McInally has told Kyle Bailey to move on quickly from Tuesday night’s 4-0 Friendly defeat from Dundee at Dens Park after the new signing felt the need to apologise for his performance. 

Prior to coming to Balmoor the 26-year-old Londoner played in England for Westfield and Metropolitan Police as well as featuring in Malta for San Gwann and in Norway for Nybergsund and Bailey felt that he had let his new team-mates down at Dens. 

McInally said: “We got a bit of a run-around in the first half and were three down at the break however none of that was Kyle’s fault. We had simply let two players who have played at the top level, Charlie Adam and Graeme Dorrans, dominate the game.” 

“We acted on that at half-time and the second half was much more even. After the game Kyle came in and apologised. He said that he felt that he had played his worst game as a professional player.” 

“I told Kyle that if that was his worst performance that it was fine, as it was still better than the best I have seen from some players.” 

McInally added: “I have told him not to worry about it. Last week was a big week for him as he is moving up to Scotland and looking for a place to stay as well as a job outside of football.” 

“He has had a lot going on. We have a game this Saturday against Dundee North End and he will be a lot more settled for that one.”
