Clyde appoint Jim Duffy as manager


Clyde FC have appointed Jim Duffy as their new manager, replacing Stuart Millar who was sacked last week, after the Cumbernauld side sit at the bottom of Division Three.

Neil Watt, Director of Football said of Duffy’s appointment, “We are delighted to have someone of the experience of Jim Duffy. This is an appointment until the end of season and Jim’s knowledge will be critical for this heavy period of games over the remaining months of the season.”

Duffy said on his new appointment, “I am delighted to accept the offer to become manager of Clyde FC. The club has played a long and distinguished part within the history of Scottish football. Like many clubs, Clyde have had some turbulent times in recent seasons, so we will need everyone to work extremely hard to try to first and foremost gain a level of respectability. Only once this is achieved can we start to look to a brighter future. I look forward to the challenge ahead and can’t wait to get started.”

Jim Duffy’s last job in management was at Brechin City, where he steered the Angus side to the First Division play-offs two seasons in a row, but left in May 2010

His first game in charge of Clyde will be at home against Elgin City this Saturday.
