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.”
