Jim McInally resigns from East Stirlingshire


East Stirlingshire management duo Jim McInally and David Nicholls have resigned.

Head coach McInally and his assistant resigned after Shire avoided finishing bottom of Division Three their final game of the season win over Annan.

The club’s website stated, “The board would like to make it clear that it wanted both men to remain in position. However, neither feels in a position where they could do so.”

McInally had been in charge since 2008. He previously managed Morton and led Shire into the promotion play-offs two seasons in a row. But this season, it looked like they would finish bottom of the table, however a 2-0 win over Annan, along with Clyde’s 3-0 defeat to Stranraer meant that Shire finished ninth.

“A decision on a new coaching appointment will be made in due course,” added the website statement.
