Buckie manager Graeme Stewart had the following comments –
I am delighted with the 4 appointments and the guys will bring a wealth of experience and enthusiasm to Buckie Thistle. As a club we wanted to have a more significant local presence, and this will allow us to monitor and develop local talent more effectively. We took our time over the appointments to make sure we got the right people on board who can help the club progress from youth development all the way through to the first team.
All the best guys and looking forward to working with you in pre-season!!
