Glenafton Athletic assistant manager John Garroch has today been appointed the new manager of Ardrossan Winton Rovers. The Glenafton committee and management team wish him all the best with his new post and we cannot thank him enough for his work and commitment he has given to the team, I would like to make it clear that John took the job after a discussion with our manager Darren Henderson first.
John Stewart, Club Secretary
As John Stewart’s post says, I have now left the club to take over as manager at Ardrossan Winton Rovers. Quite simply I wanted to be a manager again and just feel this is too good an opportunity to let go as Ardrossan are an excellent club. I want to make it 100% clear that I only left to be a manager. Darren took me to Glenafton and I will always be thankful to him for the chance to work at such a great junior club. I leave on perfect terms with Darren, Kegs and the committee. Obviously my loyalties will now lie with the Winton but I can sincerely say I hope the Glens go up, its where you belong. You have a fantastic manager and coaching staff with an excellent and hard working committee. The players are tremendous and I have to say thank you to them for all of their messages of support on this news. Maybe there just glad to get rid of me!!!!! The fans were magnificent to me when I was there and deserve as much success as possible. Top of the league and still in both of the major cups, the future of the Glens looks good. Long may it continue. As I say my loyalties are now with the Winton but I will always look back at my time at Glenafton Athletic with proud memories. I will always be friends with Darren and his family and hope I will always have friends at Loch Park. Thanks again.
