Man­ager of the Month award for Young

Cam­bus­lang’s Dar­ren Young picked up his first man­age­rial award last week.

The Al­bion Rovers chief was named League Two’s man­ager-of-the-month for Novem­ber after his side went un­beaten through five games.

The 36-year-old com­bines run­ning the show at Rovers with play­ing but is out un­til next month fol­low­ing surgery on a dou­ble her­nia.

Mak­ing the tran­si­tion from the cen­tre of the ac­tion to the side­lines has not been easy for the ex-Cathkin High pupil, with the for­mer Scot­land un­der-21s cap hav­ing to man­age his time and nerves.

Dar­ren, who is be­ing as­sisted by for­mer Aberdeen coach Sandy Clark, said:“It’s just about try­ing to get ev­ery­thing right.

“It’s about find­ing the time to get things done whether that’s go­ing away to watch other games or get­ting things ready for your own train­ing.

“You’re speak­ing to play­ers and I’m work­ing dur­ing the day as well but it’s been a great ex­pe­ri­ence and I’m loving ev­ery minute of it.

“It’s frus­trat­ing watch­ing. I was more ner­vous those first few games when I was in­jured and stand­ing watch­ing.

“You can’t have much of an in­flu­ence other than shout­ing dur­ing the game or speak­ing to the play­ers be­fore it but it’s some­thing you’ve got to ac­cept.

“I wouldn’t change any­thing and I’m learn­ing from Sandy who has been there and done it while I have some ideas my­self on how to do things.”
