Clyde choose Jim Duffy and Chic Charnley partnership
Charnley and Duffy have teamed up at Broadwood
Clyde have a new management team, with Chic Charnley being appointed to assist new first-team boss Jim Duffy.
Duffy, who left Brechin City in May, was appointed on Sunday and has now been joined at Broadwood by former Partick Thistle coach Charnley.
They take charge of a side languishing at the foot of Division Three.
Director of Football Neil Watt said: "This is an appointment until the end of season and Jim's knowledge will be critical for this heavy period."
Duffy had left Brechin after leading them twice to the promotion play-offs in Division Two during his 17 months at Glebe Park.
But Watt pointed out that he had also managed at the highest level in Scotland - Falkirk, Dundee and Hibernian - and gained an excellent reputation as a coach while working in England with Chelsea, Portsmouth and Norwich City.
We will need everyone to work extremely hard to try to first and foremost gain a level of respectability
Clyde manager Jim Duffy
Duffy, 51, told Clyde's website: "I am delighted to accept the offer to become manager of Clyde FC.
"The club has played a long and distinguished part within the history of Scottish football.
"Like many clubs, Clyde have had some turbulent times in recent seasons, so we will need everyone to work extremely hard to try to first and foremost gain a level of respectability.
"Only once this is achieved can we start to look to a brighter future. I look forward to the challenge ahead and can't wait to get started."
In choosing Charnley - who played for 13 senior clubs, including Hibernian, Dundee and Djurgardens - Duffy cited the 47-year-old's "enthusiasm, spirit and determination to succeed" as exactly the qualities that the dressing-room needs.
Duffy succeeds Stuart Millar, who was sacked as head coach after the Cumbernauld side picked up two points in 14 games.
In the first match of Watt's latest spell as caretaker, Clyde suffered a 2-0 home defeat by Annan Athletic.
