Peterhead manager Jim McInally was delighted to confirm that Jordon Brown is the Balmoor club’s new player/ coach.
The 29-year-old will officially begin his new role in pre-season and Jim reckons that the attacker will have a positive impact both on and off the pitch as he explained: “The old expression of ‘every cloud having a silver lining’ is probably true in Jordon’s case. Jordon did not play from the start that often last season due to a couple of niggling issues and that led to him spending a lot of time on the bench.”
“Whilst he was there, he chipped in with his thoughts and ideas and I began to realise how much he knew about the game and players already. I was also able to see, and hear, close up that he is a very enthusiastic supporter of the team and a person that players would listen to.”
“When I knew Simon Ferry was moving on, I had a chat with Jordon about doing some coaching. It is a route that he wants to go down so we have got everything agreed and it is a win-win situation. He is a good networker and has established a lot of good contacts throughout his career and this move gives him a chance to build on that.”
Jim added: “I would stress that it is very much a playing and coaching role. Jordon is determined to return after the summer and be fit enough to reclaim a starting jersey and I am delighted with that.
