New boss for Rose

A committee meeting was already scheduled for Monday and it moved quickly to appoint Bonnyrigg Rose coach David McGlynn.

Said club secretary Jim Harkins: ‘‘We did things properly by contacting his club and seeking for its permission to approach David.

‘‘He was flattered by our approach and delighted to accept the position with immediate effect.’’

David McGlynn said: ‘‘The approach from the Rose took me somewhat by surprise.

‘‘I did not know that Danny had resigned but I came through and had a chat with the committee and we sorted a few things out.

‘‘I’m looking forward to the challenge of rebuilding the side.’’
