He also singled out the club’s left-sided player Sam Dyer and let him know what he would need to do to build on his fitness.
Whatever he told him made a difference as he was outstanding during the club’s game the next day, as he was back to his no-nonsense best.
The club’s coaching team reminded the boys on Sunday when they played only their second league game at 11-a-side at Stonelaw of what Frank had spoken to them about in their team talk.
The lads acknowledge the time Frank had given to them and what he said, and it had a good impression on them as they came away with a hard fought 3 -2 victory over Finnart from Bridgeton . It wasn’t the club’s only success over the weekend as the bag packing at Tesco Burnside raised nearly £700.
It will be ideal in the months ahead as the club’s last away game was in Dunoon and cost around £230 for the trip, with parents chipping in to make the game.
The management team of Robert Clark, George Morrison and Jimmy Sneddon said: “On behalf of Celtic Boys Club 2000, we and all the lads we would like to thank the staff, management and customers at Tesco Burnside for supporting the sport in our community .
“We have a great bunch of lads which was acknowledged as they were thanked the customers as they helped with the bag packing.”
