Institute manager Gregg hails influence of veteran ace Quigley

Institute manager John Gregg hailed the performance both on and off the pitch of midfielder James Quigley as his side battled their way to a deserved point at Newry Showgrounds on Saturday.

Former Coleraine man Quigley, who played one game for his City opponents a few years ago, was the driving force behind ‘Stute’s comeback against a Newry side that could only be described as lacklustre.

“James Quigley probably turned a few heads when I signed him because a lot of people thought that he had maybe had his day,” said ‘Stute manager John Gregg (pictured).

“Having a player like Jamesy in your team who knows how to win a game of football is always good. I thought he was excellent with his attitude and the way he spoke to the players at half-time. James Quigley is going to be a player for me, I kid you not.

Gregg also hailed the goalscoring return of striker Ryan McCreadie at the weekend.

“McCreadie has been out injured for a while but he has worked hard and I’m delighted for him to get the goal.”
