Club Statement – First Team Manager

The Board has today reluctantly accepted the resignation of first team manager, Barry Ferguson.

Despite a welcome run in the William Hill Scottish Cup, which ended with an agonising defeat to Championship side Ayr United in a fifth round replay, both the manager and the club were disappointed with the recent poor run of League results, often not reflecting the effort and standard of play, which culminated in the defeat at Annan yesterday.

That result leaves the club with only an outside chance of achieving the objective of securing a play-off place and then promotion to League 1.

The club would like to thank Barry for his unstinting commitment to the job over the last two and a half years and wishes him every success in the future.

Barry said: “I want to wish the club all the very best in the future. I hope that it can go on and achieve its aim of reaching the play-offs this season.”

A further update will follow ahead of Tuesday night’s Ladbrokes League 2 match against Montrose at Broadwood.
