CLYDE have appointed former St Mirren boss Danny Lennon as their new manager.

The Ladbrokes League Two side recently sacked Jim Chapman and sit eighth in the table with just two wins.

Lennon has managed Alloa, Scotland Under-21s and Airdrie – the latter two on a temporary basis – since St Mirren decided not to renew his contract in 2013.

The 48-year-old had led Cowdenbeath to successive promotions before keeping Saints in the top flight for four years.

Clyde chairman Norrie Innes told the club’s website: “Danny attended the game against Stirling Albion and demonstrated his strong desire for the job by presenting his own detailed match analysis.

“He has a very impressive record and a substantial skill set which is what we need to develop a stronger footballing structure and positive culture within the club.

“Danny spoke with passion and intelligence and he very much welcomes the challenges ahead.”
