Evening Times - - SPORT - By MARTIN McMIL­LAN

CLYDE have ap­pointed for­mer St Mir­ren boss Danny Len­non as their new man­ager.

The Lad­brokes League Two side re­cently sacked Jim Chap­man and sit eighth in the ta­ble with two wins from their open­ing 12 games.

Len­non has man­aged Al­loa, Scot­land Un­der-21s and Air­drie – the lat­ter two on a tem­po­rary basis – since St Mir­ren de­cided not to re­new his con­tract a year af­ter he led them to League Cup glory in 2013.

The 48-year-old had led Cow­den­beath to suc­ces­sive pro­mo­tions be­fore keep­ing Saints in the top flight for four years.

Clyde chair­man Nor­rie Innes told the club’s of­fi­cial web­site: “Danny, in prepa­ra­tion for his in­ter­view, at­tended the game against Stir­ling Al­bion and demon­strated his strong de­sire for the job by pre­sent­ing his own de­tailed match anal­y­sis.

“He has a very im­pres­sive record and a sub­stan­tial skill set which is what we need to de­velop a stronger foot­balling struc­ture and pos­i­tive cul­ture within the club.

“This will be founded on the hard work we have car­ried out in com­mer­cial and op­er­a­tional ar­eas.

“Danny spoke with pas­sion and in­tel­li­gence and he wel­comes the chal­lenges ahead.”
