Len­non I’ve got to go back to move for­ward

Paisley Daily Express - - House Home -

St Mir­ren Hall of Famer Danny Len­non ad­mits he ex­pects some sur­prise around his de­ci­sion to join Clyde.

Len­non re­turned to man­age­ment at the start of this week fol­low­ing a year out of the game, by agree­ing a deal with the League Two out­fit.

He has coached the Saints to the League Cup in 2013 and has spent the ma­jor­ity of his ca­reer man­ag­ing the Bud­dies in Scot­land’s top flight. Short spells at Al­loa Ath­letic and Air­drie have since fol­lowed, but by tak­ing the reins at Broad­wood it is the first time he has bossed in the low­est rung since leav­ing achiev­ing pro­mo­tion with Cow­den­beath back in 2009.

Len­non said: “Some peo­ple might ques­tion my am­bi­tion in com­ing to the bot­tom tier hav­ing pre­vi­ously spent time in the top flight, but the re­al­ity is that the com­pe­ti­tion is fierce.

“There are a lot of qual­ity man­agers and coaches look­ing for jobs and I’m ab­so­lutely de­lighted to be given the op­por­tu­nity at Clyde. I also think it speaks about the char­ac­ter I have that I’m not afraid to take a step back to come back up the way again.

“It’s the right fit for both of us. Clyde and my­self are both hun­gry for suc­cess and both of us want to be higher up the leagues.

“To achieve that, we both need to put in a great deal of work. I ac­cept that chal­lenge and I’m go­ing to put ab­so­lutely ev­ery­thing into it.”
