New First Team Manager AppointedFriday, 12th Nov 2021
DAFC are delighted to announce the appointment of John Hughes as our new First Team Manager.
John last night signed a contract with our club until the summer of 2023, and will work alongside all of our existing back room staff.
John recently left his post at Ross County in the summer after successfully keeping the Staggies in the Premiership. He is a highly experienced manager who is highly regarded for developing young players, at the majority of his previous clubs.
As is normal, a small group of directors, nominated by the board, followed a robust process to select candidates both from those that formally applied, as well as approaching others to ascertain whether they would like to be considered for the position. In the end, we identified a small number of candidates who had the right credentials, at this moment in time, to be worthy of interview. Two candidates performed especially well at interview.
However, it was the unanimous decision of the Board that John Hughes, by virtue of his previous experience and leadership qualities was the man we should appoint to help us stabilise our club’s position in the SPFL Championship, and take us further forward.
