McIntyre wins managerial award

Dunfermline boss Jim McIntyre has won the Irn-Bru First Division Manager of the Month award for December.

McIntyre has made an excellent start to his managerial career, having arrived as caretaker manager, following the departure of Stephen Kenny.

Four straight wins earned the veteran player the top post on a permanent basis on 3 January.

The Fifers currently sit fourth in the table, as they aim to return to the SPL after relegation last season.

McIntyre had beaten off competition for the Pars job with Terry Butcher, John Robertson and former midfielder Ian Ferguson all interviewed for the vacancy.

Chairman John Yorkston was sufficiently impressed with the club's recent form to appoint McIntyre - who also continues as a player - after Kenny's sacking following a disappointing 15 months in charge.

The Irishman had left the Pars second from bottom in the First Division, prior to McIntyre's appointment.
