Jude Winchester has paid tribute to Barry Gray and his coaches for the recent upturn in Cliftonville’s fortunes.
The Reds head into tomorrow’s Danske Bank Premiership encounter with Carrick Rangers having won seven of their last nine games following a notable improvement since September’s meetings with the same opposition – and Winchester has highlighted the role performed by the backroom team during the period.
“Barry has got us playing really well at the moment,” says the 24-year-old.
“It’s a credit to him and the rest of the coaching staff. They’ve put in a lot of work, not just on the field but off the field and they put in a massive effort. They make sure we’re ready for each game and training session, so credit to them. They have been brilliant with us.”
