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.

Assistant Manager: Brian McGarrity

Brian McGarrity

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.
