The Manager

Mark Wilson (Sponsors John and Marilyn Burke)

Mark was appointed as Brechin City Manager on 4th September 2019.

The 35 year old retired from playing in 2015, and has previous management experience at Airdrieonians where he was appointed Head Coach in October 2016. Despite difficult circumstances at the Diamonds, Mark achieved his objective by leading the club to 3rd place in League One that season, before standing down from his position following a penalty shootout defeat in the playoffs against Alloa Athletic.

A highly regarded right back during his his playing days, Mark broke through at Dundee United, making 137 appearances for the Tangerines before a £500,000 move to Celtic in 2006. Despite his progress being curtailed by injury problems, he would go on to collect three Scottish Premier League winner medals, as well as a Scottish Cup and League Cup during his six seasons at Parkhead. Playing under mentors such as Neil Lennon and Gordon Strachan, Mark also featured in the Champions League and notably netted the only goal in a Scottish Cup Old Firm clash against Rangers in 2011.

After leaving Celtic, further spells with Bristol City, Dundee United and Dumbarton followed before hanging up his boots aged just 31.

Mark captained Scotland at Under 21 level before making his senior debut for the National Team in a 3-0 Nations Cup win over Northern Ireland in 2011.
