Southy heads back up north!

Squad: Craig McEwan

Craig ‘Southy’ McEwan

Craig McEwan has left the club to take up the vacant managerial position at fellow Premier Division side Arthurlie.

Glenafton’s  management team, committee , players and supporters would like to thank Craig for his four fantastic seasons at the Loch Park.

Southy was signed by Mark Shanks in November 2010 and made 124 appearance and scored 4 goals for the club, the most memorable that thunderbolt against Musselburgh in the Scottish Junior Cup 4th round tie last season.

His experience in the game shone through on the park, always giving his all and supporting the younger players in the team. Defeat was painful and victory joyous – no one quite can celebrate goals like Southy, the club’s own cheerleader.  A huge favourite with the supporters, always time for a laugh and a joke and easily the best singer in the team!

During his spell with at Loch Park the Glens won the Super League 1st Division title (2011/12) and West of Scotland Cup (2012/13) and were Scottish Junior Cup finalists (2013/14).

Everyone at the club wishes Craig all the best in his new  management role at Arthurlie where he will team up with former Glenafton assistant manager Stevie Kerrigan and former Glens team-mate Craig Potter.  Thank you and good luck from Glenafton Athletic.

p.s. a special fond farewell from Maggie
