New Manager Appointed

Following the departure of Marvin Bartley, we are pleased to confirm the appointment of Peter Murphy as our new Manager.

After seven successful seasons, Peter has left his position at Annan to take up the reins at Palmerston, having signed a two-year deal.

Director Jim McLinden said “With Marvin leaving it was important that we moved quickly to find a replacement. By bringing Peter in it gives him the summer to build and prepare for the next campaign. He has achieved success at Annan guiding them to league one, the highest in their history. We are delighted to have Peter on board, kick starting the preparations for next season”.

Peter added “I am delighted to get an opportunity to work in full time football. It has been a dream of mine since moving into management. I would like to say a big thank you to Annan Athletic in the way they have handled everything in both my time at Galabank and since the decision that I will be moving to their football neighbours. It’s been a bit of a whirlwind with the season just finishing on Saturday to now getting ready to build a squad that will represent my style of football on the park. And to meet my ambitions, the ambition of the club and supporters. It’s an exciting time for everyone and a challenge that I’m relishing”.
