Despite Berwick’s stuttering league form so far this season, chairman Brian Porteous has given his full backing to manager Colin Cameron.

Porteous voiced his support for Cameron when he addressed supporters’ at a well-attended talk-in at Shielfield on Friday.

“Myself and my fellow directors firmly believe that Colin is the right man for the job,” he said. “He has the experience and the vision to take us to where we want to be.”

Porteous said that the club had made ‘the biggest budget’ available to Cameron during the summer following the consortium’s take-over.

But he stressed that it was unlikely any more funds would be made available to strengthen the squad during the forthcoming January transfer window.

“If Colin wants to bring in additional players it is likely some will have to leave to balance the books,” he said.

All that could change, however, if Berwick were to beat Albion Rovers in the Scottish Cup fourth round this weekend and they were to land a plum tie against Celtic or Rangers.

Cameron said that despite falling behind the leading sides in the second division, he firmly believed that a play-off place was not beyond them.

And to that end, the team lifted themselves up to fourth place in the table at the weekend when they beat Annan Athletic 2-0 at Shielfield, with goals from Darren Lavery and Lee Currie.

Cameron said; “All it needs is for us to go on a bit of a run, which I think we are capable of, but we need to try and change the mentality to cut out those mistakes and that’s something you can’t coach.”
