BOURNEVIEW YM boss Brian Moore has pointed to the influence of former Irish League star Philip Craig after his side sealed another three points on Saturday.

Craig was a key figure in Portadown's backline for a number of years and his return to the game has offered View a real shot in the arm.

Moore's side now sit fourth in the Intermediate B standings after beating Laurelvale 2-1 on Saturday.

And while the hosts were also comfortable, their profligacy in front of goal almost cost them dearly when Vale broke late on.

Moore said: "It was a tight game on a heavy pitch. It wasn't really set up to be a good game.

"We had quite a few good chances but their keeper was in inspired form. He pulled off some exceptional saves.

"I think we deserved to win the game but with every missed chance I could see an equaliser coming late on but thankfully it didn't arrive.

"It was hard enough but we probably made it even harder for ourselves.

"Our goalkeeper Andy Neill made a great save near the end to see us home. We'd have been devastated if that had gone in after missing all those chances."

Once again key to their success was the industrious form of Philly Craig in the middle of the park.

Portadown supporters will be only too aware of the talents of Craig who was a mainstay of Ronnie McFall's backline over a number of years.

He first broke into the Shamrock Park set-up as a 15-year-old and went on to make plenty of appearances in the Premier League. He left to travel to the States a couple of years ago and despite competition to secure his services when he decided to return to the local game he opted for BOURNEVIEW.

While he made his name as a defender, either in the middle or at full-back, while at Portadown, it's in the centre of the park that he's been employed now.

And Moore has teamed him with another player of experience, talent and power to produce an impressive engine room.

The Bourneview manager said: "Philly joined us about three months ago and he's been playing really we'll.

"He's really strong and wins every ball.

You can never shake him off the ball either which makes him a big presence in c e n t r e -midfield.

"He's been playing in there alongside Robert Potts who is also so hard to knock off the ball.

"They are two physical presences in there and they've been playing really we'll.

"We also managed to bring Mark Boyce back. He was with Bourneview, then went to Ambassadors and signed for Annagh United.

"This year he wanted to come back to Bourneview to help the club out after we were relegated. …
