Len­non gets nod as new Bully Wee boss

Rutherglen Reformer - - Motoring Guide -

Clyde FC have an­nounced Danny Len­non as their new man­ager.

The for­mer St Mir­ren boss proved to be the suc­cess­ful can­di­date af­ter the Bully Wee board sifted through over 30 ap­pli­ca­tions last week.

Clyde chair­man Nor­rie Innes said: “This ex­cit­ing ap­point­ment comes on the back of an in­ten­sive fort­night for the club.

“Tony McNally and Ian have done a great job in step­ping up and gal­vanis­ing the whole squad and it is only right that we firstly ac­knowl­edge their com­mit­ment in supporting the club through this dis­rup­tive pe­riod of tran­si­tion.

“I per­son­ally thank them and I know they will have en­joyed and gained from the ex­pe­ri­ence.

“To progress for the re­main­der of the sea­son and be­yond we wanted to ap­point a man­ager who has the req­ui­site knowl­edge, ex­pe­ri­ence and abil­ity to de­velop each player fur­ther and strengthen the tal­ents and ca­pa­bil­i­ties of the team and staff.

“Danny, in prepa­ra­tion for his in­ter­view, at­tended the game against Stir­ling Al­bion and demon­strated his strong de­sire for the job by pre­sent­ing his own de­tailed match anal­y­sis.

“He has a very im­pres­sive record and a sub­stan­tial skill set, which is what we need to de­velop a stronger foot­balling struc­ture and pos­i­tive cul­ture within the club.

“This will be founded on the hard work we have car­ried out in our com­mer­cial and op­er­a­tional ar­eas.

“Danny spoke with pas­sion and in­tel­li­gence and he very much wel­comes the chal­lenges ahead.

“We are com­mit­ted to as­sist­ing and supporting the man­ager, staff and play­ers in de­liv­er­ing bet­ter per­for­mances and re­sults.”

Len­non, 48, takes over the club who held league lead­ers Stir­ling Al­bion to a 1-1 draw but re­main in eighth place in League Two.

In­terim boss Tony McNally guided Clyde to their sec­ond suc­ces­sive draw since the de­par­ture of Jim Chap­man last month.

The Bi­nos took the lead with 10 min­utes to go thanks to Dar­ren Smith but a soft penalty de­ci­sion saw the ta­ble-top­pers drop points as David Good­willie net­ted from the spot at the death.
