Management Team

PostedOctober 23, 2021

Cowdenbeath FC can this evening confirm following today’s Scottish Cup tie that manager Gary Bollan and his management team of Craig Easton and Ian Flaherty have left the club by mutual consent.

We most warmly thank them all for their hard work on the club’s behalf in their time at Central Park. Indeed Gary has been our longest serving manager in almost 30 years having been appointed to his post in November 2017. In that first season, taking over the club when it was at a low ebb, Gary preserved our League status with an against the odds win over Cove Rangers. Building further on that Cowden advanced to finish 6th and then 4th under Gary and his team in the next two seasons. Last season was a very difficult one given the many trials and tribulations visited on us by Covid and its truncated nature.

Season 2021/22 though has produced a run of very disappointing results and the club has fallen to the foot of the League 2 table despite the management team's best endeavours. And as everyone will appreciate, ‘football is a very much a results based business’. We do though most sincerely wish Gary, Craig and Ian all the very best for the future.

The search for a new manager is of course now underway and Goalkeeping Coach Dave McGurn will take charge of team matters in the interim assisted by club captain Craig Barr.
