Following the shock departures of Ralph Brand and Steve Kerrigan, Montrose Roselea have appointed Chris Simpson as their new manager along with Dove Craig as assistant and Gary Munn and Alan Millar as the coaching staff.

Former Roselea player Chris has managed Brechin Vics and held the assistant manager’s post at Arbroath Vics and during that time he has gained a lot of experience.

He was chosen mainly for his enthusiasm but with his degree in Sports Science he brings a modern outlook to the game, how it should be played and how to prepare for matches.

As a former player he knows the club very well and spoke of the ‘privilege’ when he showed interest in the position.

He also brings along a backroom staff full of experience along with some Roselea and Junior knowledge and, Dovey Craig needs no introduction.
