Gary Bollan appointed ‘Loons’ Manager

Monday, 21 December 2015 08:40

Forfar Athletic officials are delighted to confirm this morning that Gary Bollan who has spent the last three seasons as manager at Airdrieonians Football Club has accepted an offer to become the club’s new manager.

Gary who also had a successful stint in a similar role at Livingston from 2009 to 2012 and who lives locally will officially take up the position on Wednesday and will meet the players for the first time that night at training.

His assistant at Airdrie, Stuart Balmer will be assuming a similar role at Station Park while Ian Flaherty will complete Gary’s backroom team as an Assistant Coach.

As was well documented last week, the Station Park Directors were delighted with the calibre of the applicants for the post and it was only after an extensive interviewing process that they came to the unanimous decision that Gary was the man in their opinion to take the club forward in what are difficult times.

He will obviously be in charge of the team for the visit of league leaders Dunfermline Athletic on Boxing Day and we are sure the home support will give him a warm welcome.

The club would like to put on record their thanks to all who applied officially or noted an interest in the post and wish them all well for their future in the game.

The Forfar Athletic Directors would also like to thank their counterparts at Airdrie for their co-operation in making the appointment possible and their thanks are also extended to Stewart Petrie and Barry Sellars who prepared the team in a very professional manner for the trip to Coatbridge on Saturday past.
