Brora Rangers have announced that manager Ally Macdonald will step down from his role at the club at the end of the Highland League season.

The Cattachs have five matches left to play to complete the campaign, but are already out of title contention.

That will only put a slight dampener on Macdonald’s time at Dudgeon Park, though, as he amassed 12 winners’ medals as a player and manager, most recently the penalty shoot-out victory over Fraserburgh in this season’s Highland League Cup final.

He informed the club’s board of his desire to leave at the end of the season for personal reasons, and Brora Rangers have accepted his resignation.

Director Kevin Munro told the club’s website: “Ally has been a joy to deal with since he took on the player/manager role at the club. His rapport with the players, and everyone at the club is hard to surpass.

“The hours Ally has put in to improve Brora Rangers is unbelievable. Ally should be very proud of the Scottish Cup run this season and leading the team to victory recently in the Highland League cup final as a player/manager.”

Club chairman Scott Mackay added: “I would like to thank Ally for his time as manager of Brora Rangers Football Club.

“He has gone about his role with the professionalism and commitment required of a Brora Rangers Football Club manager.

“This was highlighted in taking the Highland League Cup home to Brora, a fantastic achievement for himself and the club, and our magnificent run in the Scottish Cup.

“I will miss our interactions and would like to wish him all the very best for the future.”

Brora Rangers now intend to begin the search for Macdonald’s replacement.
