Coaching Staff

Stevie Campbell - Assistant Manager (Sponsors John & Marilyn Burke)

Stevie Campbell joined Brechin City in August 2016 to bring his knowledge and experience to Darren Dods' Management Team.

The majority of Stevie's playing career was spent at Dens Park where he spent 8 seasons before 2 years at Coleraine in Northern Ireland. He then spent 3 seasons at Livingston before joining City from 1997 to 2000.

His coaching career started at Dundee and Inverness Caledonian Thistle before following manager Craig Brewster in making the trip from the Highland capital to Dundee United in 2006 - initially as under-19's coach before heading up the youth set up from 2009 through to his departure in 2015. During this time at Tannadice he played a pivotal role in the development of young talent such as Ryan Gauld and John Souttar.

The culmination of his first season on the Glebe Park coaching team, saw the memorable Championship Play-Off success and promotion to the second tier of Scottish Football.

Outside his involvement with Brechin City, Stevie operates a football academy in Dundee bearing his name.

Following the departure of Darren Dods and Lee Bailey in October 2018, Stevie was placed in interim charge of the first team. He then took up the position of Assistant Manager when Barry Smith was appointed Manager.

For the 2019/20 season, Stevie's sponsors are John and Marilyn Burke.
