    Dear Supporters,

    I would like to start by saying how proud and honoured I am to be the new manager of this great football club, and I would like to thank the board for giving me theopportunity.

    In my short time at the club I have been blown away by the support you have shown toward myself and the team. I know your passion and commitment won’t change in the future and this will be a big factor in helping us achieve our main goal, which is promotion back to the Championship.

    I can’t speak highly enough of the players. I am extremely grateful to them for accepting the changes and for giving me their full support in the last few days. They really are a great bunch of boys and I am very lucky to have inherited such a fantastic squad.

    No doubt I will need help along the way and I am fortunate that Paddy Connolly, Lee Sharp and Alan Fraser have decided to stay on and give me their assistance. Although Jack has left with all the plaudits, I am sure he would be the first to agree that he couldn’t have done it without these guys behind him.

    Finally I would like to wish Jack every success in his new post at St Mirren and thank him for everything he has done for us up to now. I know I speak for all the players when I say he was a pleasure to work with. It is up to myself and the team to make sure that all that good work was not in vein and that we continue to carry on in his absence! Thank you once again and please continue to get behind the boys, you really can make a difference!

    Regards,

    Jim.
