Rutherglen Reformer - - Sports - Mur­ray Spooner

Clyde man­ager Barry Fer­gu­son has com­mit­ted his fu­ture to the club af­ter sign­ing a new con­tract.

The Bully Wee boss was ap­pointed player-man­ager in June 2014 and the new deal will see him take charge of the team through to the end of the 2018/19 sea­son.

The Lad­brokes League Two man­ager of the month for Fe­bru­ary said:“I just thought that this was the right thing to do. We’re try­ing to build some­thing and plan ahead, rather than just look at it one sea­son at a time. We’ve been dis­cussing new con­tracts with the ex­ist­ing play­ers and they were look­ing for my com­mit­ment as part of that.

“The chair­man and the board have backed me 100 per cent and they let me get on with the job with­out any in­ter­fer­ence. They’ve put their trust in me and that’s a re­ally im­por­tant fac­tor.”

Clyde chair­man, John Alexan­der said:“I am de­lighted that Barry has been en­thu­si­as­tic about ex­tend­ing his stay.

“He has de­vel­oped in his time with us, learned a great deal about the role and I am con­fi­dent that he has what it takes to suc­ceed with the club.”
