Glens part company with boss Brough

Glenrothes Juniors manager Grant Brough has quit his post after less than 18 months in charge following a poor run of results.

Glens are without a win in their last five league matches - a run that has taken the Warout side into the East Premier Division relegation zone - and Brough felt the time was right to step down and allow someone else to take the helm.

“I would like to thank everyone that has been there to help during my time at the club, I really enjoyed being part of Glenrothes Juniors,” he said.

“Recently I lost the motivation and drive for the football and I always said the second I stopped enjoying it should be the second I hand in my resignation.

“It’s for that sole reason I feel it’s best for a new face to come in and take the club forward.

“With the squad of players we have at the club we should be doing better than we currently are and maybe a fresh new approach could be the spark the team needs to take us forward.

“Yes we have been very unlucky with injuries but the bottom line is we have all underachieved so far this season and that’s the most frustrating aspect of leaving. “I’m not looking to get involved again in football, certainly not in the short term, and I’m looking forward to taking some time out and spending more time with Emma and the kids.

“However I won’t be a stranger to the club and will be back in time to watch a few games and cheer on the team.”

Brough joined the Glens in June last year and enjoyed a relatively successful first season in charge, only missing out on a Superleague promotion play-off on the final day of last season.

The club has already started speaking to possible replacements and a new manager could be at the helm in time for Saturday’s league game away to Oakley United.

A Glens spokesman added: “The club would like to thank Grant for the work he has done in his time here. Grant leaves with the club’s best wishes.

“Announcements regarding the new manager will be made in due course.”
