Sean takes up coaching role
We are pleased to announce that club captain Sean Crighton has agreed to combine his playing duties with a first-team coaching role.
Defender Sean has made 118 appearances over two spells at the Diamonds, and has been involved in coaching with Morton and Hamilton since an early age.
The 30-year-old will now continue his progress as part of Ian Murray’s backroom staff, and Director of Football Stuart Millar was delighted with the appointment.
“After consulting with the manager, I offered Sean the role and we’re thrilled that he has accepted.
“His leadership qualities are there for all to see, and he’s been a great asset to the club in more ways than one.
“It’s an appointment that the playing staff are delighted with, and the board and coaches can only echo that sentiment.”
Sean said: “It’s a great privilege for me to take up this role. I’d been helping out in an unofficial capacity before, so now that it’s official it’s great for me to be working more closely with the manager and Stuart.
“I’ve said before that I’m very happy at this club, and if there’s any way at all that I can help to better us and to get us to where we should be, I’m certainly up for it.”
And manager Ian Murray added: “Sean is a great person to have around the club, and his determination to succeed can be seen in his performances.
“On top of that he’s honest and hard-working, and he’s already a talented coach - so I think it’s a very good appointment for all involved and we’re all looking forward to working together.”
