The Club can announce that Manager Andy Kirk and Club Advisor Craig Levein have accepted offers to take up new roles at Premiership side St Johnstone FC.
Andy played a pivotal role in our resurgence, helping us contend for promotion back into the SPFL. He achieved remarkable success in his second season when we secured the league title.
We would also like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to Craig Levein, who generously contributed his time and expertise to aid the club's resurgence. His invaluable assistance, particularly in helping and giving advice to Andy along with his appearances at our hospitality events, will be a lasting memory.
We take this moment to offer our best wishes to both Craig and Andy as they embark on this new chapter at St Johnstone.
Chairman Kevin Mackie added, “Whilst we always anticipated Andy Kirk's success would lead to his eventual departure, we had hoped he would be the Manager that would lead us back into the SPFL.
“However, Andy's opportunity to join Craig at a Premiership Club necessitated our respect for his decision, and we wish him the success he truly deserves.”
The search for Andy’s successor will begin immediately and an update on the interim management arrangements will follow.
