Jim McIntyre has added Billy Dodds to his coaching team to work alongside Gerry McCabe. Billy will coach on a voluntary basis through the week and may occasionally have some matchday involvement depending on his media commitments. `Doddsy` of course is no stranger to the club having been involved on a similar basis during Gordon Chisholm`s spell in charge and also worked with McIntyre and McCabe previously at Dunfermline Athletic.
The manager said, "Billy will be involved with us during pre-season and in our First Division games. He will work with the players during the week and attend our games when his media commitments allow. I am delighted to have him on board at a very exciting time for the club as we return to the First Division and look forward to playing on a new pitch.”
Billy was with the team when they played a closed door friendly at Queen`s Park on Saturday to open the pre-season. We won 2-1 courtesy of goals from Derek Lyle and young Aaron Splaine. Tony Quinn scored a penalty for the home side.
