Stevie McCandlish (Chairman) David Caldwell (Head of Football) welcomes the new West of Scotland League Manager Josh Gardner to the club.

NEW Manager

Josh Gardner

Rossvale FC have secured the services of Josh Gardiner for season 2023/24. The previous St Cuthbert Wanderers FC Manager move from the South of Scotland League sees the manager move closer to home to take up the challenge of our Fourth Division West of Scotland League Team.

With only one player retained from the original St Cuthbert Wanders FC squad Josh was tasked with the challenge of building a team to complete in the South of Scotland League season 2022/23 where the team finished mid-table.

Josh said, “building a team at a distance with limited local players, convincing over 20 players to travel from the central belt to training once a week and for games was an ongoing challenge”. “Leaving on good terms, I am now looking forward to the challenges at Rossvale FC, it’s a forward-thinking club with a pathway of over 700 players”.

Rossvale FC “Head of Football” Dave Caldwell said, “We were looking for a young ambitious manager who ticks many of the boxes in terms of a modern approach to football and the development of players. The aim is to create a high-performance environment for players to achieve our goals”.

Josh will be joined by his Coaching Staff:

Assistant Manager: Scott Black

Coach: Jonny Purves

Goalkeeper Coach: John O’Kane
