A familiar face is back at Brora Rangers in a new role after the Cattachs confirmed former manager Davie Kirkwood has returned to the club.

Kirkwood was at the helm for Brora's first ever Highland League triumph in the 2013/14 season, before following it up by retaining the crown the next year.

In the process, Kirkwood's side set many league records – amassing the most points in the history of the division, the greatest margin of victory to the league runners up, highest win rate, fewest goals conceded and highest goal difference.

He also led the Cattachs to a remarkable unbeaten run, going the entirety of 2014 without losing a league game and eventually stretching the run to 57 games – encompassing the whole of the 2014/15 campaign.

Now Kirkwood is back at Dudgeon Park in a new role as head of football operations, which will see him working on player recruitment, club development as well as assisting the management team.
