Bud­dies le­gend goes to Clyde

Paisley Daily Express - - The Neil Deal -

League Cup win­ning man­ager Danny Len­non has been ap­pointed new boss of League Two side Clyde.

Len­non, who coached St Mir­ren to their 2013 League Cup tri­umph over Hearts, takes the hot seat at Broad­wood fol­low­ing the sack­ing of Jim Chap­man a fort­night ago.

The 48-year-old en­joyed a suc­cess­ful four-year spell in charge of the Bud­dies be­tween 2010 and 2014, keep­ing Saints in the top flight and se­cur­ing their first ma­jor tro­phy since 1987 with the win at Ham­p­den.

He left the Saints at the end of the fol­low­ing sea­son, be­fore tak­ing on a care­taker role as boss of the Scot­land un­der-21 side. He then moved on to Al­loa Ath­letic where he helped them avoid the drop via the Cham­pi­onship play-offs.

A brief stint in charge of Air­drie fol­lowed, be­fore be­ing of­fered the man­ager’s po­si­tion at the Bully Wee yes­ter­day.

Clyde chair­man Nor­rie Innes said Danny had an im­pres­sive record.
