Stirling Albion are pleased to announce the appointment of Andy Kennedy to the new position of General Manager.
Andy, the unanimous choice of the interview panel, will join the Club at the beginning of November and brings with him a wealth of business knowledge and skills from a range of previous roles, both paid and voluntary.
One of his most recent positions was as Stirling Town/City Centre Initiative Manager and his impressive list of achievements in this arena make him the ideal person to assist the Club Executive Board as we move forward – and upward! Alongside his achievements in business, Andy also happens to be a former Stirling Albion player, who was with us from 1976-1982 during Alex Smith’s time as manager.
Stuart Brown, Club Chairman, said: “I’m delighted Andy is coming on board and I, along with my fellow Board colleagues, look forward to working with him as we strive to take the club to the next level off the field.
“His business acumen and knowledge of what makes Stirling tick will be invaluable in assisting Stirling Albion further develop and expand our commercial and community engagement. In turn, that will further enable us to best assist Dave Mackay as he sets about his task of taking us to the next level on the field.”
Andy Kennedy said: “I am absolutely delighted that I have been appointed to this new position within Stirling Albion Football Club. The club has always been close to my heart. Even when I was resident in other areas of Scotland, the Albion result was always the first one I looked for.
“My time as a player at the club was cut short due to injury but I have always felt there was unfinished business between us both. I look forward to my role in the development and success of the club in the future. Combining my two interests of business and football has always been an ambition of mine, so the role suits perfectly. However, you will be pleased to know it does not involve me dusting down my football boots!”
