St Mirren are three days into a training camp at the Pinatar Arena in Spain with Stephen Robinson’s men being put through their paces during the winter break.
The Buddies have been almost two weeks without a competitive match but return to domestic action with a Scottish Cup Fourth Round tie against Queen of the South at The SMiSA Stadium on Saturday (20th Jan).
Saints warmed up for that tie with a friendly match against a AFE (Association of Spanish Footballers) Fútbol select side at the Campoamor yesterday afternoon. New signing Hyeokkyu Kwon played the first 45 minutes with Lewis Jamieson netting a first-half brace before Zach Hemming saved a penalty kick. There were a number of changes at the half-time interval as most players were given minutes. One of those was Toyosi Olusanya who made it 3-0 to Saints on the hour mark. AFE Fútbol pulled one back from the penalty spot on 67 minutes and added a second on 82 minutes from a corner but couldn’t find an equaliser.
Stephen Robinson’s side will have further training sessions at the Pinatar Arena at the beginning of the week before travelling back to Scotland on Thursday afternoon.
