Broxburn appoint Pittman

BROXBURN ATHLETIC have appointed former USA internationalist Steve Pittman as their new manager.

The Junior outfit have moved quickly to replace former boss Allan Middleton, who recently left to become assistant to Graeme Love at Bathgate Thistle.

The Broxburn committee have taken on board the advice of their exiting boss after Middleton recommended Pittman for the post.

Former Partick Thistle player Pittman, whose last managerial job was as boss at Pumpherston, will have Grant Fairley and Steve McIlhone as his assistants.

There are huge plans in place for the South Division side with new dressing-rooms, a new pitch and much-improved facilities at Albyn Park all geared towards a push towards promotion to the Premier League then, ultimately, the Super League.

Meanwhile, Super League champions Bonnyrigg Rose look likely to lose top scorer Paddy Flannery. The striker, who missed the final few games of last season with a knee injury, is coveted by a number of Super League clubs but Bo'ness United look favourites to sign him. Flannery previously worked with new Bo'ness manager Allan McGonigal at Dumbarton.

Goalkeeper Craig Coyle is also leaving Bonnyrigg. By mutual consent he and manager Allan Miller have agreed to his release. Coyle has many admirers in the East Region.
