John Coughlin quit Berwick Rangers at the weekend
Stenhousemuir have confirmed the appointment of former Berwick Rangers boss John Coughlin as the new manager of the Third Division club.

Coughlin, who also previously managed St Mirren, quit Berwick at the weekend and there was immediate speculation that he would move to Ochilview.

"John's experience was the main factor in the decision," said a statement on Stenny's official website.

"And we were fortunate that he became available just as we needed him."

Stenhousemuir stressed that, following applications, interviews had been held with three candidates on their shortlist.

They revealed that Jim Chapman, sacked by Albion Rovers in May, and John Sinnet, manager of leading junior outfit Linlithgow Rose, had also been in the running for the post.

But Coughlin, who has already met with his players, was given the job and will be assisted by Matt Kerr.

Former boss Money, who stood down after a 7-0 hammering by Third Division leaders East Fife, will remain as head of youth development.

"John also took the opportunity to meet with Campbell to discuss in particular the liaison with the youth system and both have clear mutual respect," said Stenny's statement.

Stenhousemuir sit eighth in the Third Division with 10 points from nine games, 12 adrift of the leaders.

Coughlin led Berwick to the title and promotion last season but left Berwick with his side at the foot of Division Two.
