Official Statement from Arniston Rangers
Arniston Rangers are delighted to announce that Brian McNaughton is returning to Newbyres as team manager, with present manager Ben Honeyman teaming up with him as his number 2.
This was brought about after a meeting between the management team and officials where both Ben and Lee explained that they were struggling to commit full time to the job due to family and work commitments.
The committee acknowledged the situation and moved quickly to secure Brian, presently number 2 at Cowdenbeath. With the experience he has gained over the years and with Ben at his side we feel we will quickly overcome the sticky patch that the team is going through.
The club wish to go on record to thank both Ben and Lee for their efforts and commitment over the past months.
