PADGE DEPARTS LP FOR FULL TIME MANAGERIAL ROLE
Patrick Cregg is to leave Montrose FC with immediate effect having received a fantastic, if unexpected offer to become Assistant Manager at Irish Premier Division outfit St Patrick’s Athletic FC.
The full time role will see the Dublin born midfielder return home and join forces with friend and recently appointed Manager, Stephen O’Donnell.
Cregg made his 49th appearance for the Gable Endies yesterday, having arrived at Links Park last summer. The 33 year old brought a wealth of experience both on and off the pitch and his quality, calmness and control in midfield helped drive Stewart Petrie’s side to their first Championship Promotion Play-Off’s back in May.
Club Chairman John Crawford said, “Whilst everyone at the Club will obviously be sad to see Padge go, we are always pleased to help in the development of our players, particularly into full time roles.
“I would like to sincerely thank Padge for his commitment and efforts in his short time at Links Park and we wish him every success as he makes the exciting transition into management.”
