Berwick Rangers Reserve team manager Mark Lamb has announced his intention to leave the club in the summer.

Lamb, who was previously with Coldstream, has spent two seasons with the Shielfield Park outfit, but the Reserves are due to quit the East of Scotland League at the end of the current campaign, concentrating on the SPFL Reserve League instead, and he has decided it is time to move on.

“The past two years have provided me with many great memories,” he said.

“I’ve had many different highlights throughout my time with the club.

“Seeing the likes of Jonny Fairbairn, Dean Carse, Josh Morris, Kenny O’Brien and Dylan Easton all progress and slot into the first team is what it’s all about as a coach.

“Dylan, now playing at St. Johnstone, just goes to show what can be done with the right application - the reserves are an excellent opportunity for players.

“Of course, we’ve also reached the final of the King Cup and just missed out on promotion last season; and even this season we’re sitting third in the league as it stands.

“I’d like to place on record my thanks to the likes of Berwick Rangers Supporters Trust for the resources they’ve dedicated during my time here, as well as several individuals. Jimmy Rae, the girls on a Saturday, Mark Beveridge, Sean Jackson, John Bell, these have all been excellent throughout my time here.

“And of course I must thank the players for all their fantastic efforts during my time in charge. Seeing these young lads mature into men has been a pleasure.

“I like to think we’ve ticked the boxes set by the board two seasons ago. I really hope the club go on from this and build something even bigger!”

Lamb’s decision to leave means Berwick player-manager Colin Cameron and the Board will now have to assess the situation carefully over the coming months before making their next move.
