Manager Update: Derek Lawson

It is with regret that Scone Thistle can confirm that manager Derek Lawson has resigned from his position at the Club. Derek will be duly taking over the reigns at Forfar West End, a position that on a personal level will involve significantly less travel for him. We thank Derek & his coaching team for their excellent tenure over the last 3 seasons.

In the period since joining the Club, Derek has shown unwavering commitment whilst also seeing the arrival of 2 children & moving his family to live in Carnoustie. The additional travelling this involved was becoming more of a challenge & ultimately has been the key factor in his decision.

Derek’s last game was the 2-1 victory against Tayport last weekend and ironically his first game for West End will be v Scone at Farquharson Park on September 21st.

As the Club now looks for a replacement to continue the work Derek & his team have carried out, we welcome applicants to contact secretary@sconethistlefc.org with a short resume/CV. Alternatively for additional information the Chairman Derek Adam can be contacted on 07736 037243.

This is an exciting time to join Scone Thistle & Derek leaves the Club in a good position for his replacement. Coach Sean Whitworth will oversee team matters until a permanent appointment is made.
