St.Mirren call time on Danny Lennon as manager


St.Mirren have announced that manager Danny Lennon will not have his contract renewed for next season. The former Cowdenbeath manager spent four years in Paisley, leading the club to League Cup success in 2013 and secured eighth place in the league this season.

A statement on the official St.Mirren website, read: “The Board of Directors have today decided not to offer Danny Lennon an extension to his contract that expires in June 2014. Danny and his players gave our Club one of its finest days on 17th March 2013 and they will always be remembered by the club for that wonderful day.

“Decisions like this are never easy, however we would in particular, commend Danny for his professionalism and the dignified way he has carried out his duties during a very challenging season.

“The Board would like to thank Danny for his service to the club over the last 4 years and wish him every success in the future.”

Lennon’s future was uncertain this season and despite cup success in 2013, they finished in 11th place in his first season, eight in his second and 11th in his third season.

Since signing in June 2010, Lennon managed 179 games winning 49, drawing 56 and losing 74 games during his tenure.
