Sinclair settles into Armadale hot seat

ERIC SINCLAIR has been announced as the new boss of Junior outfit Armadale Thistle, writes JOHN GILMOUR.

The former Dundee striker, and latterly the ex-Camelon boss, replaces Bobby Ford.

Sinclair, who will announce an assistant shortly, will take charge as Thistle meet Musselburgh at home on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Blackburn manager Mickey Lynch has resigned. Lynch has been coaching Celtic youngsters locally and has decided to take a more active role with the Parkhead club.

His assistant, Peter Duncan, has accepted the manager’s job.
