We are delighted to confirm the appointments of Greig McDonald and Paul Thomson to manager Stevie Crawford’s backroom staff.
Greig McDonald returns to the club as Assistant Manager after enjoying a hugely successful playing stint at Bayview. Joining towards the end of the 2002/03 promotion winning season, he went on to make 189 appearances in the black & gold, scoring 36 goals and picking up a Third Division winners medal with the club in 2007/08. Greig left Bayview in May 2009 for Stirling Albion where he was appointed player-manager in January 2012 and guided the side to promotion to League One via the play-offs in 2014. Greig has most recently been part of the Thistle Weir Academy coaching team at Partick Thistle.
Also joining Stevie’s coaching staff is Paul Thomson as First-Team Coach. Until recently, Paul was full time at Heart of Midlothian as Head of Youth and running the performance school at Balerno High School, having previously held the position of Junior Academy Manager at Tynecastle.
Greig and Paul both met up with the squad at training last night as they prepare for our next match away to Peterhead on Saturday.
