We’re delighted to announce that Manager Darren Young has agreed a 2-year contract extension.
Darren was appointed East Fife manager in June 2017 and guided the club to a 6th place finish in Ladbrokes League 1 during his first season, which included a 6-1 victory over Airdrieonians and a 5-4 comeback win against his former side Albion Rovers.
A major overhaul of the squad last summer meant the team took slightly longer gel but Darren soon went on their best run since 1961 with 8 straight wins in all competitions, which saw him pick up the Ladbrokes League 1 Manager of the Month award in September. This season has also seen us feature in the Semi Final of the Irn Bru Cup (our best ever run in the competition) and reach the 5th round of the Scottish Cup.
The club is currently in its highest league position for over 20 years and looking to cement our place in the Championship play-offs for the first time. The Board of Directors are delighted that Darren accepted their offer to remain as East Fife manager for a further two years.
