Broomhill Football Club are delighted to confirm that First Team Manager Stephen Swift has confirmed his backroom staff for 2023/24.
Former Darvel Assistant Manager Craig McEwan has joined the club as Swifty’s assistant. The former St Cadoc’s manager, who made over 300 SFL/SPFL appearances during his playing career will be bringing his experience and nous to bear on the Broomhill first team.
Manager Stephen Swift told us: “I’m delighted to have a Craig as my assistant manager. He’s got a wealth of experience in the Scottish game as a player, coach and manager and I’m looking forward to striking up a partnership with him.”
Iconic Broomhill striker Martin Grehan will return to the club as player/First Team Coach. ‘Paolo’ was a prolific scorer during his three seasons with the club and was a popular figure in the dressing room. With his experience of scoring for the likes of Partick Thistle, Alloa Athletic, Arbroath and Stranraer, he will be a fantastic addition to Swifty’s backroom.
Swifty said: “I think it’s a great move for us bringing Paolo back. He’s a legend at the club and I wanted to keep some of that DNA we had from last time. He will come in in the dual role of player/First Team Coach.”
The goalkeepers will be looked after by another former Broomhill favourite, Stephen Bryceland, who returns to the role of Goalkeeping Coach following a spell with Stenhousemuir. Stephen is a well-respected coach and will reignite his partnership with Mr Broomhill, Stephen Barr, who returns to the goalkeeping department for his eighth season with the club.
Stephen Swift said: “Stephen is a top Goalkeeping Coach and the players love his training. I’m delighted to be able to work with him again.”
Lynn Glen remains in post as our Physiotherapist after being with the club since Swifty’s first tenure at the club.
Swifty said: “I’m delighted to hold on to Lynn Glen who is the best physio I have worked with.”
We can also confirm that stalwart Kit Manager Davie Wilson will be back – much to the terror of opposition dugouts – for another season.
