Tony McMinn is to step down from his role as first team Assistant Manager to take on an expanded role with the East Fife Community Football Club set up.
Tony became Head of Performance at EFCFC in May, leading their School of Football and Creative Player & Performance classes. In his expanded role, Tony will continue his involvement with the East Fife U20s side and will also take on the added responsibility of the player progression pathway.
Quote form Tony: “My new role unfortunately means I wouldn’t have been able to spend the time that I feel is necessary to prepare for training and games, so after much thought, and only when Darren had identified the correct person to fill the role, I took the decision to step away from the first team. It was a hard decision, but I am excited to help and improve on the early success of our player pathway and hope we can promote more players to the first team squad”.
Darren Young: “I would like to thank Tony for everything he has contributed to the club over the last 4 years. We worked well together, and he will still be around the club in his role with the Community Football Club and our Under 20s which will also be good for the first team.”
Tony will continue to be a familiar face around Bayview, and we wish him all the best in his new position.
