CUT THE SCRAP: Barry Gray is determined to change Warrenpoint’s reputation

Barry Gray performed a minor miracle in keeping Warrenpoint Town in the Danske Bank Premiership last season and now he is intent on changing the club's image as perennial relegation candidates.

It's a big ask given Town are one of the smallest clubs in the top flight but Gray has never been one to mess about and, in a typically forthright interview, he explains that he has stayed on as boss at Milltown to transform the team from "whipping boys" to a stable Premiership outfit.

To that end, the former Cliftonville manager has brought in 15 new players in the last two transfer windows, with around the same number going through the exit door.
