We confirm that Manager Stevie Crawford will leave the club on Sunday to take up the position as Assistant Manager at Dundee United.
Stevie originally joined East Fife as a player in the summer of 2008 before being appointed Player-Manager in April 2009, guiding the side to 7th position in Division 2 during his first full season. He stood down as manager in October 2010 but remained at the club as a player until January 2011. Stevie returned to Bayview as Manager in December last year.
Stevie will remain in charge for this weekend’s SPFL Trust Trophy match against Arbroath before making the move to Tannadice next week. Greig McDonald & Paul Thomson will handle all first team matters in the interim.
Chairman Jim Stevenson: “Whilst I am extremely disappointed to be losing Stevie, I appreciate that this is an excellent opportunity for him. He came in at a really difficult time last season but brought a togetherness back to the club. I wish him all the best in his new role.”
