The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - Sport Football -

Brechin Vics of­fi­cially con­firmed yes­ter­day the ap­point­ment of Phil McGuire as their new man­ager.

With­out a club since leav­ing St An­drews United last De­cem­ber, the An­gus club are clearly de­lighted to have at­tracted such a big name.

Dur­ing his play­ing days McGuire is best known for the nine years he spent with Aberdeen for whom he made more than 200 ap­pear­ances.

There­after, he served Don­caster Rovers , Dun­fermline, In­ver­ness CT, For­mar­tine United and Arbroath.

His first taste of ju­nior foot­ball came at Lochee United in 2011 and af­ter a brief spell with Mon­trose was ap­pointed play­eras­sis­tant man­ager of Jean­field Swifts. In Oc­to­ber 2013, he moved to St An­drews United as player-coach, tak­ing over as man­ager the fol­low­ing June.

The state­ment on the Vics web­site said: “In what has been a ma­jor coup for the club, we are de­lighted af­ter weeks of dis­cus­sions to an­nounce Phil McGuire as our new man­ager.

“In what is a spe­cial year for our club and cel­e­brat­ing 100 years of his­tory for Brechin Victoria, to se­cure the ser­vices of some­one with fan­tas­tic knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence from play­ing and coach­ing back­grounds at the high­est level both in the se­nior and the ju­nior game is fan­tas­tic for our club.”
