Cumnock Juniors have announced the next manager at the club...and it's someone who has tasted victory at Townhead Park this season already.

Stephen Swift has been revealed as the man who will take over in the hotseat following the departure of Murdo MacKinnon last month.

The former Stenhousemuir boss will take charge once Cumnock's season is complete, and will be the Townhead Park side's fourth manager in under a year.

John Doyle took over in the summer following the departure of Brian McGinty, who led the club to the Scottish Junior Cup in June.

But Doyle's stint only lasted until September, when MacKinnon then took charge, before leaving his post in March.

Swift was in charge of Lowland League Broomhill when they defeated Nock 3-0 in the third round of the Scottish Cup in November.

The 43-year-old's playing career included spells at Ayr United, Irvine Meadow and Pollok, while his first stint as a manager was with Kilbirnie Ladeside from 2012 to 2016.

Swift will be assisted by Craig McEwan, who also moves to Townhead Park from Broomhill.

McEwan had a successful spell as Glenafton Athletic manager, winning a treble in the 106/17 season, including the league and Scottish Junior Cup.

Cumnock currently sit in sixth place in the West of Scotland Premier Division, following a convincing 4-1 win over Kirkintilloch Rob Roy on Saturday.

Cumnock's penultimate league match is against Largs Thistle at Barrfields on Saturday, May 4, before the curtain comes down on Nock's 2023-24 campaign with a derby match against Glenafton at Loch Park on May 11.
