Gordon Durie new manager March 2012

The club are delighted to announce that Gordon Durie has been appointed East Fife manager following the departure of John Robertson.

Gordon was assistant to John Robertson during his time at the Bayview helm, but his association with the club goes back many years.

It was in May 1979 that manager Dave Clarke signed thirteen-year-old Gordon Durie on an ‘S’ form, two-and-a-half years before the youngster became a fully signed East Fife player shortly after his sixteenth birthday in December 1981.

Just weeks later, Gordon made a scoring debut in an East Fife jersey when he netted the second goal against Dunfermline Athletic in a reserve match at Bayview.

Gordon didn’t have to wait long for his first team debut, which arrived on 20th February 1982 at StairPark, Stranraer, where the youngster’s performance in a 2-1 victory earned praise from manager Clarke. The following week Gordon won the hearts of the East Fife faithful in his home first-team debut when he scored the only goal of the game against Forfar Athletic. "The cheers at full time were not merely for an unexpected victory, but also for the emergence of a possible star", proclaimed the East Fife Mail.

Gordon’s career then took him to Hibs, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur before returning north to spend nine seasons with Rangers. His last senior club was Hearts.

Gordon also made his mark at international level, turning out 43 times for Scotland and finding the net on seven occasions.

In October 2010, Gordon returned to East Fife in an official capacity when he was appointed assistant to John Robertson, and everyone at the club is delighted that he has accepted the Manager’s position following the departure of John Robertson at the beginning of the month.
