New two year deal for Falkirk manager Peter Houston


Falkirk manager Peter Houston has signed a two year extention to his current contract, which keeps the former United manager at the Bairns until summer 2018.

Speaking to the official Falkirk website, club chairman Doug Henderson said: “I’m delighted to tie up Peter and his team on longer deals. There’s no doubt that the Club has moved forward under Peter’s management, with a strong performance in reaching the Scottish Cup Final last season and in our current position as second in the Championship promotion race.

“As a Club, we will continue to invest in our team and in our facilities as we push for a return to the Premiership and we believe this will be achieved under Peter’s management.”

Houston was appointed manager of Falkirk in June 2014, after working for some time with Celtic as one of their scouts.

After signing the deal, Houston said: “I am delighted to sign the extension, it has been a very enjoyable experience so far. We can now plan and prepare for the next two years as a coaching unit. We ultimately want to get this club back to the Premiership and I look forward to continuing the challenge of doing that.”
