Hartley named new Falkirk manager

Thursday 5th October 2017

Falkirk have appointed Paul Hartley as their new manager following the recent departure of Peter Houston.

The 40-year-old former Alloa Athletic and Dundee boss was unveiled by the Ladbrokes Championship club on Wednesday evening although caretaker manager Alex Smith will again take the team for Saturday's IRN-BRU Cup tie against Dunfermline Athletic.

Hartley, whose first game in charge will be at home to Inverness Caley Thistle on October 14, told the club website: “I am absolutely delighted to be back in management and to have been given this opportunity with a club the size of Falkirk. 

"Throughout my discussions with the club it is clear to me that there is massive untapped potential here. I am looking forward to working with the players, staff and board to deliver on that as soon as possible."
