Glenafton Athletic is delighted to announce that manager Mick McCann has appointed former Glens keeper Brian McGarrity as his assistant.
Brian and Mick had spells together at Annbank United and Auchinleck Talbot before Brian made the move to Loch Park in 2012/13 with Mick following on two seasons later. Brian reached the Scottish Junior Cup Final in his first season with the Glens and earned an Ardagh Sectional Cup winners’ medal the following season and who can forget his feat of saving four penalties in a row in the quarter-final shoot-out in that competition. Of course, Brian was a member of treble winning side of 2016/17 that won the Scottish Junior Cup, the West Region Premier Championship and the Evening Times Cup Winners Cup. Brian made 210 appearances for the Glens and scored 1 goal with a long kick-out! Sadly, following a serious injury Brian was forced to retire from the game at the start of Season 2019/20, however he remained a familiar face at games, cheering the team on. Everyone at the club would like to wish Brian all the best in his new role of assistant manager of Glenafton Athletic.
