After a period of discussion and reflection, Andy Keogh has decided not to put his name forward for the permanent role of Manager.

Andy took over as interim manager in early February and led the side to a highly credible 7th place in the league. His spell in charge saw us secure our first away victory of the season as well as being one of the leading sides in the form table.

On Andy’s decision, Vice-Chair Callum Irving said “We have spoken at length over the past two months and chatted through all options. It’s an absolute testament to Andy of how he has approached these conversations with honesty, integrity and reflection.

“It’s still his desire to focus on playing for the next few seasons and the club are fully behind him in that decision. Andy took on the interim role and not only achieved in terms of playing and results, but also carried himself with great class and led by example across the board.

“Andy still harbours ambitions to manage one day and we have discussed how the club can support him on this journey as he continues his playing career.”

We’d like to thank Andy for the honest, mature and thoughtful way he has engaged with the club during discussions.

We will now recommence our recruitment process with applicants in the coming weeks.
