Falkirk FC is pleased to announce the appointment of Lee Miller and David McCracken as our new Interim Coaching Team.
Lee and David will take charge of all first team matters ahead of Friday’s William Hill Scottish Cup tie against Linlithgow Rose while the club undertakes an extensive recruitment process for our vacant First Team Manager position.
The duo, who took training with the squad for the first time this morning, will have the experienced figure of Alex Totten to assist them in an advisory role.
Both Lee and David will be familiar faces to Falkirk supporters. Lee made over 150 appearances for the club across two spells, whilst former Club Captain, David appeared 115 times in a four-year stint at the club between 2013 and 2017.
Interim Chairman, Lex Miller, said: “First and foremost I wish to thank both Peterhead FC and Livingston FC for their cooperation in allowing both Lee and David to return to the club.
“We are delighted to have appointed Lee and David, both are consummate professionals who understand exactly what this club is all about. It is an important few weeks for the club and I am confident that our entire fanbase will show their full support to our new coaching team in the matches ahead.”
Lee Miller, said: “I am delighted to be back home. The opportunity was one I couldn’t refuse given how much the club means to me. I have always had a brilliant relationship with the Falkirk fans and I am itching to get into the dugout on Friday night.
“David and I know the club extremely well, we know what is expected and we are determined to get a smile back on the faces of the Falkirk fans once again. We need to get results and we will do everything we can to deliver.”
David McCracken, said: “I’ve had some incredible memories here as a player and I am extremely proud to be asked to coach the team with Lee. We all know the potential here and where this club should be, it’s up to us now to get results to help realise that.
“Coming back feels right, it’s a real buzz to be out on the pitch and around the stadium again. We have the chance to get off to a great start on Friday night and we will do everything we can to ensure the team are fully prepared for the match.”
Lee and David will meet the press and speak to Falkirk TV tomorrow.
