Robbie Simpson said: “I feel very proud to be appointed as the new manager. I think this Club has fantastic potential and I am really looking forward to playing my part in the next phase of the journey towards being a truly successful ‘community’ Club.”

Robbie, who had helped with the Academy set up this season, reiterated: “I’m very passionate about the Academy and I want to continue giving youngsters a chance.”
