Newspaper Reports – New Manager
I wish to set the record straight with regards to the newspaper articles appearing in today’s Herald and Scotsman with regard to (quote) “an early favourite to take over at Stirling Albion” and who (quote) “is believed to already be of interest to the Board at Forthbank”.
I can confirm that no official representing the Club has formally or indeed informally spoken to either newspaper and that the comments are entirely inaccurate insofar as there is no favourite or favoured candidate and everyone who formally applies will be of interest to the Board.
It is disappointing in the extreme that newspapers should chose to adopt what can, at best, be described as “lazy reporting”.
I am taking this step to reassure our fans and importantly everyone that has, or intends to, apply for the position, that due process will be followed and that neither I, nor anyone else on the Board, has any preconceived ideas with regards to the successful candidate or that there is already a predetermined outcome.
