We are delighted to announce that former player Mick McCann will be appointed the new Glens manager. Mick will appoint his own back room staff and this will be announced in the near future.
Mick played up front for Annbank United and then Irvine Meadow XI before joining Auchinleck Talbot at the start of Season 2010/11. In four successful seasons at Talbot the club’s many honours included two Scottish Junior Cup wins and two West Premier Region titles. Mick then moved to Troon for a season before joining Glenafton Athletic in June 2015. During the five seasons at Loch Park, including the curtailed one of 2019/20, Mick made some 160 appearances for the Glens and scored 58 goals. Of course, Mick was part of the treble winning side of 2016/17 that lifted the Scottish Junior Cup and Evening Times Cup Winners Cup as well as being crowned West Region Premier Champions.
We are delighted with this appointment and we cannot wait for the club to be back training and playing and of course with our supporters back atloch Park . We made the correct decision in withdrawing from the league when you see the Covid situation getting worse every week and now as you are all aware the league has been suspended till further notice.
Yours in sport
John Stewart (Glenafton Athletic Secretary )
