Only 72 hours have elapsed since his club's final match of the 2010/11 season, their 1-0 Evening Times Cup Winners Cup defeat by Arthurlie, but nobody could accuse Macca of dwelling on what might have been.
Instead, he has boosted his striking options with the capture of three front men in Alan McKenzie (Pollok), Murray Watson (East Kilbride Thistle) and Craig Miles (Lanark United).
"We needed to get more goals in the team after finishing as one of the lowest scoring Super First Division sides last season," said the Lanarkshire gaffer.
"Craig is a penalty box player whose abilities are well-known to me from when I managed him at Lanark, while Murray and Allan are both young, hungry and determined and are looking to make it in the game, and I feel confident they can do it at Hannah Park."
Shotts were the main movers in a weekend that also saw big-spending Pollok sign up full-back Stevie Swift from Irvine Meadow as well as persuading their recent trialist from Knightswood Amateurs – centre-back Graeme McLaren – to put pen to paper.
Another Medda player is also thought to be on Lok boss Willie Irvine's radar, with versatile ace Brian McGinty believed to be close to joining while unconfirmed reports suggest vastly experienced ex-St Mirren stopper Scott Walker is his top defensive target.
The acquisitions of Walker and ex-Airdrie ace Paul Lovering will plug the gap left by the impending departure of centre-back Gerry Joyce, who is believed to be set on a move to Beith where he will be joined by fellow Bellsdale Park newcomer Jay Lang, formerly of Vale of Clyde.
Beith boss Stevie Easton is also keen on landing another former Peasy ace, Gary Wild, whose has refused to sign terms at Cumnock.
Among confirmed Nock arrivals are Dalry Thistle pair Andy Bell and Cammy McKimmell, as well as bustling Rob Roy front man Craig Feroz, with gaffer Stevie Farrell also hopeful of pipping Beith to Glenafton midfielder Willie Howie.
Another Glens player set to move following the resignation of boss Greg Denham is ex-Pollok battler Stevie Docherty.
Relegated Rutherglen Glencairn are willing to listen to offers for Chris Merrilees, Gary Espener and Stephen 'Hagi' Anderson, while Lanark United, who also made the step down to the Super First Division, have fixed up Ross Fletcher (Blantyre Vics), John Renwicks (Cumbernauld United) and Colvilles Park stopper Chris Walker.
