Cupar Hearts have unveiled a new management team of Lee Sibanda, Peter Kidd and Scott McInroy.

Sibanda joins the club from Broughty Athletic JFC to take up the role of player manager.

He has a long history with Hearts as a former player and coach, and is the son of Cupar’s most successful manager Robson Sibanda.

Ex player Peter Kidd and current player Scott McInroy make up the management trio as assistants.

The new appointments couldn’t get off to a winning start as Hearts were in action for the first time since November when they welcomed Bowhill Rovers in the Kingdom Challenge Cup at the weekend.

The visitors opened the scoring when o Darren Aitken’s shot went in off the post. He doubled his tally before the break.

Bowhill added a third through Greig Halliday.

Tomorrow (Saturday) Cupar Hearts host Eastvale in the league. Kick off 2.00p.m.
