Edinburgh City are delighted to announce Michael McIndoe as the club’s new SPFL team manager.
Michael makes his SPFL managerial debut, following a brief spell in charge of Lowland League side Gretna 2008 last season, where he saved the club from relegation. An Edinburgh native, Michael had a prolific 20-year playing career predominantly in England, which saw him star at several high-profile clubs including Wolves, Derby County, Barnsley, Bristol City, Coventry City and Luton Town.
“We are very happy and pleased to have Michael on board as our new manager,” Edinburgh City Chairman John Dickson told ECFCTV. “He has an extensive background in being part of some massive clubs in England as a player and has also proven that he can commit fully to guiding teams through transitionary and challenging periods as a manager, based on his impact at Gretna.
“I strongly believe that Michael can lead us into our next phase and help us achieve our goals in the future, making players better and bringing his knowledge and experience inside the club. I am absolutely convinced that he will be successful at Edinburgh City” added John.
Michael says, “I am excited for the challenge ahead and this opportunity. I am under no illusion of the hard work required to get the club up the table but when I was given the privilege of being asked to join the club, it was a very simple decision for me to say yes.”
Michael will meet the squad tomorrow at the training ground. He is the fifth man to take over as manager following City’s promotion to the SPFL in 2016, and joins on an initial three-year deal.
Michael will be joined by his backroom team Kirk Crichton and Liam Robertson.
