Glenafton Athletic say they won’t look to appoint a new manager until the new year.

It comes after Craig McEwan announced his resignation as the Glens boss after the club pulled out of this season’s West of

Scotland Football League over concerns related to the coronavirus pandemic. That marked the end of McEwan’s successful 10 year association with the club as a player and then manager.

With the Glens not playing in this season’s league along with rivals Auchinleck Talbot and Cumnock who also made the same decision, the club’s board feel there is no immediate rush to seek a replacement.

Club secretary John Stewart told the Chronicle: “There are some rumours going about but we have not spoken to anyone yet and we probably won’t look at it until the turn of the year in January or February.

“We will publicise the post when it’s ready and then take names of those interested and the board will interview them and decide what is the best decision for the club but there is no rush.

“The club is in a good place. Our focus is on working behind the scenes on funding for the club and ground refurbishment.”
