John Brogan quits Lanark United post for Wishaw on eve of new season
United are already searching for a new manager to replace the 63-year-old
Lanark United have been dealt a blow ahead of their Central District Second Division campaign as manager John Brogan has left the club to take charge of First Division outfit Wishaw.
Assistant manager Colin Mitchell and coach Scott Gemmell have also departed the club.
Brogan joined the Moor Park club in September 2014 but was unable to prevent the Yowes from dropping into the Second Division at the end of the season.
The Yowes could not seal an immediate return to the First Division during Brogan’s second season in charge and narrowly missed promotion by a single point last term.
Defender Paul Burns has been placed in temporary charge of the club as they prepare to travel to Vale of Clyde on Saturday.
George Reid, President of Lanark United, told The Lanark Website: “Lanark United would like to thank Brogie and Mitch, and last few weeks Scott, for their hard work in their time at Moor Park and wish them every success at Wishaw .
“Lanark United will now focus on getting the right men in place to take the club forward.
“Experienced defender Paul Burns has agreed to take charge of team for the time being. The club is fortunate to be able to call on such an experienced campaigner, this undoubtedly takes the pressure off the club and buys us time to make sure explore every avenue and get any new appointment right.”
