FORMER Irvine Meadow player Brian McGinty has returned to the club as manager.

Fellow ex-Meadow man Stevie Aitchison was confirmed as the new assistant boss on Tuesday night.

Brian has previous management experience with Pollok, Bellshill (where he won promotion) and Rossvale who currently sit 3rd in the Central 1st Division.

Jimmy Noble has been asked to stay on as coach.

The Club would like to thank Jimmy for galvanising the Players and preparing them for Saturday's Scottish Cup fixture during this interim caretaker spell.
