Brechin City have appointed former player, Gavin Price, as their new manager.
The 49-year-old had two spells at Glebe Park in the 1990s – earning a big money move to the Netherlands on the back of the first one.
More relevantly for the Highland League champions, Price spent around 10 years coaching with Elgin City, six of them as boss.
Stephen Simmons, who took caretaker charge of Brechin after Andy Kirk left for St Johnstone, will remain assistant manager.
Chairman Kevin Mackie said: “We are delighted to announce that Gavin Price has accepted the role of football manager at the club following a unanimous decision by the directors and management committee.
“Additionally, we are also delighted to confirm that Stephen Simmons will continue his invaluable contribution to the team in his current role as assistant manager.
