Clyde announce John McCormack as their new manager

Clyde will be managed by John McCormack until the end of the current season, the club have confirmed.

McCormack, 54, was appointed first-team coach at Broadwood Stadium in September and has now been promoted following the departure of John Brown.

"John provides us with the necessary experience that the players require at this stage in the season," director Neil Watt told the Clyde website.

Meanwhile, forward Steven Odunewu has left Clyde and joined Lanark United.

Odunewu had joined Clyde four months ago after leaving Queen's Park.

Former Dundee, Queen's Park and Greenock Morton manager McCormack took charge of Clyde's first team for Saturday's scheduled Scottish Cup tie with Livingston, which was abandoned because of heavy fog.

He will be back in the dugout for Tuesday's rearranged fixture with Livi, with Dundee awaiting the winners in the next round.

Meanwhile, Clyde's majority stakeholder, the Clyde Development Consortium, has agreed to participate in the process that aims to change the Cumbernauld club's ownership.

It follows a meeting the Clyde FC and the Clyde Supporters Trust after which the three groups agreed to work in partnership to address concerns and produce the draft guiding rules and principles of the new structure.

Each of the three boards will nominate representatives to a working party and, by the end of January, will present their proposals to their respective groups and then to the wider support for approval.

A presentation on the reasons for moving to a member-owned structure will be given at Thursday's annual meeting of the Clyde Supporters Trust.
