Patrick Cregg Appointed Manager - By Steven Mew

Brechin City FC is delighted to confirm the appointment of Patrick Cregg as Manager, with Logan McConachie joining him as his Assistant.

Both UEFA A Licence holders, they will now get to work with the squad with pre-season training commencing next Tuesday.

As a player, Patrick had a distinguished career which saw him come through the academies of Manchester United and Arsenal before going on to represent Falkirk, Hibernian, Greenock Morton, St Mirren, Bury, St Johnstone, Shamrock Rovers, St Patrick’s Athletic, Forfar Athletic and Montrose. He also gained recognition at international level for Republic of Ireland, representing them at every youth level.

He was part of the Falkirk squad that reached the Scottish Cup Final in 2009, before going one further and lifting the silverware with St Johnstone in 2014.

Towards the end of his playing career, he moved into coaching within the youth academies of St Johnstone and Dundee United. He went on to take up the Assistant Manager role at St Patrick’s Athletic in his native Ireland and was most recently at Dundalk where he got a taste of European football in the Europa Conference League.

Chairman Kevin Mackie commented, “We are delighted to have secured Paddy’s services and look forward to him moving to Scotland and taking up the Manager’s position at the Club.

“He will be joined by Logan McConachie who will now leave his position at Spartans to take up his role as Assistant to Paddy. Logan has previously been Assistant Manager at Jeanfield Swifts.

“Both Paddy and Logan have ambitions to progress further up the leagues and their coaching skills will swing into action to work with the squad at training which starts next week.”
