Breaking News ! Thorniewood United will target the West of Scotland League Conference 3 title this season, because they just want to play. Boss Jamie Nesbitt isn't getting involved in the politics of the wrangle that threatened to cause chaos in the new set-up last week, and says he understands why clubs have pulled out. And while disappointed that there is no promotion from the conferences this season, Nesbitt says there is no such thing as a 'friendly' game. He said: "We don't pay huge sums of money, so it's not as if the boys are relaying on their Thorniewood wage, and I'm hoping the boys are happy to go along.

"It's a shame there isn't going to be any promotion, but you've got to have a helicopter view and see it from clubs' point of view.

"From the smaller clubs' point of view, our budget's nowhere near that - you're lucky if it gets you a takeaway on a Saturday night.
. That's why I'm for playing. "The players' health and safety comes first, but we've spoken to our players. When we handed out the safety equipment and said this is your gear for the foreseeable, not one player said 'nah, I'm not up for this' because there's no showers or anything - not one of them said that.

"As long as they're wiling to back that, I'll put 100 per cent in for them as well." Nesbitt added: "With no promotion it is essentially friendlies, but if they're saying at the end of the season you can win something then there's still something to play for. "I was always taught from an early age that there are no friendlies in football, and I'm pretty sure everybody might have their opinion on that, but I've seen players screaming for a penalty in a friendly with the last kick of the ball, so that just goes to show there aren't any friendlies, in my opinion."
