McDonaugh named Edinburgh City boss

Wednesday 11th October 2017

Edinburgh City have appointed James McDonaugh as their new manager following the recent departure of long-serving boss Gary Jardine.

McDonaugh was previously head of academy coaching at Hibernian and was most recently assistant to Peter Houston at Falkirk. 

His first game in charge will be Friday night's Scottish Cup second-round tie against Ladbrokes League 2 rivals Stenhousemuir at Ainslie Park. Craig Beattie has been named player/assistant manager and Colin Jack joins as first-team coach.

City chairman Jim Brown told their website: “The club has come a long way on and off the field in a relatively short space of time and this was reflected in us receiving a number of high-calibre applications for the post. 

"However, it was clear from early on in the process that James was the outstanding candidate and the board are delighted he has agreed a contract until the end of the 2018/19 season.”
