DAFC MANAGEMENT POST

Dunfermline Athletic Football Club regret to announce that Jim Leishman has decided to step back from his Manager`s post and take up his previous position as Director of Football.

The Board are extremely grateful to Jim for all his immense efforts during his spell as Manager, particularly in reaching the final of the CIS Cup last season and being instrumental in ensuring that the Club continues to enjoy SPL status.

The Board are delighted that Jim will now be able to focus on the Club`s strategic requirements as Director of Football and will continue to offer guidance and support to the coaching staff in addition to being a fantastic ambassador for the Club.

Bill Hodgins, Chief Executive speaking on behalf of the Board commented "Jim has been a loyal servant to DAFC since he returned in 2003 and we are very fortunate to retain his experience and skills and to benefit from his enormous enthusiasm for Dunfermline Athletic".

Jim Leishman, Director of Football added "I can only wish all the players and coaches all the best for the future and make no mistake I will be there on Saturday wearing my Dunfermline Badge."

At present, the Club is not in a position to make an announcement on a new Manager and therefore in the interim, Craig Robertson will act as Caretaker Manager for the game against Hearts this Saturday.
