Frustrated Bullock leaves Arbroath

Gayfield men on the hunt for new goalkeeper coach and back-up shot-stopper

Arbroath Player/Manager Paul Sheerin has advised that a sense of frustration has led to Gayfield goalkeeping coach and back-up shot-stopper Tony Bullock opting to leave the club.

Bullock, who has played for seven Scottish clubs, starting off at Ross County in 2001, joined Arbroath 18 months ago in a dual role but he was 'sent off' for the third time after a game following comments he made to referee Des Roache after Saturday’s 4-3 defeat from Stenhousemuir.

The 41-year-old, who was on the bench, has now told Sheerin that he wants to take a break from football, with the Red Lichties manager saying: “Tony was feeling frustrated by a number of things about Saturday’s game and unfortunately said something he should not have. He has had a sense of frustration about football for a while now and reckons that it is best that he takes a break from it.

“I am disappointed by his decision, as he has been a big character here, but he probably needs to fall in love with the game again. Hopefully, he will not be lost to it for too long and in the meantime I will be looking to secure a new goalkeeping coach and player.”
