Forfar Athletic officials are delighted to announce tonight the appointment of Jim Weir as Manager.

Jim who has been manager of Elgin City since November of 2014 takes over the Station Park managerial reins with immediate effect and will attend a scheduled Board Meeting tomorrow night, before taking his first training session on Tuesday evening.

Jim had a distinguished playing career with Hamilton Accies and St. Johnstone in particular prior to becoming Assistant Manager at McDiarmid Park.

He then went on to manage Montrose, Arbroath and Brechin City before his stint at Boroughbriggs.

Forfar Athletic Chairman Ken Stewart stated that Jim had been the unanimous choice of the Forfar Directors for the post following an extensive interviewing process and they were delighted that he has accepted the challenge.

The Chairman also stated how appreciative he was of Elgin City’s co-operation in what was a difficult situation for them and wished them all the best in their quest for a successor to Jim.

Ken also wished to thank Stuart Balmer and Barry Sellars for their efforts behind the scenes at Station Park over the past two weeks in the preparation of the side for the games against East Fife and Stranraer.
