Clyde’s new manager Jim Chapman insists recruitment is key if the club are to compete at the top half of League Two next season.
The ex-Annan Athletic boss has been unveiled as the man to succeed Peter MacDonald and Jon-Paul McGovern, who stood in as interim co-bosses after Barry Ferguson quit.
Chapman guided The Galabankies to third in League Two last season while Clyde just avoided finishing bottom.
The 51-year-old, who will start his managerial duties on May 29, said: “I’ve been working in the lower leagues so I know the standards and exactly what it takes.
“Recruitment is crucial. I know what it takes to be strong and competitive in this league and you need to have the right type of players and staff.
“I’ve been involved in Scottish football for long enough and you look at the potential that each club has.
“I know exactly what Clyde Football Club stands for and what it means to the fans.
“When I met the new chairman his enthusiasm was infectious and the plans he has for the club going forward are exciting.
“For me, it’s an excellent fit with what I feel that my strengths are as well.”
