Albion Rovers FC – New Manager
Albion Rovers FC are delighted to announce the appointment of Brian Kerr as the club’s new manager. Kerr (36) steps up from his current role as the coach of Rovers Under-20 side. Rovers Chairman Ronnie Boyd said: ‘Brian has done a great job with the under-20 development side, and we are confident he can do an equally good job with our first team ‘Brian played the game at a very high level both north and south of the border and earned three caps for Scotland, but he also knows the demand of Division 1 football.’ The former Newcastle, Motherwell and Hibs midfielder hopes to announce the appointment of an assistant manager later this week. Kerr said: ‘I’m delighted to get the chance to manage Albion Rovers, and I’ll do everything in my power to continue the progress the club has made in recent years. ‘My work will start immediately, as I look to put a squad and backroom staff in place for next season’.
