Coldstream are searching for a new manager following the resignation of Andrew Gibson due to work commitments.

With assistant Stephen Roughead also stepping down, former club chairman Allan Wilson has agreed to take temporary charge of the team while the club consider their options.

“I love Coldstream. I’m not going anywhere else,” said Gibson, who has been in charge at Home Park for two years and three months. “I’ve resigned for the sake of the club. I’ve just got to concentrate on my work and family.”

Gibson, who lives in Berwick, has found it increasingly difficult to attend training this season due to his commitments as fire service training manager at RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire.

But he steps down with an impressive record. Gibson took over in September 2011 when Coldstream were struggling in the bottom half of the East of Scotland First Division table. He brought some much-needed stability and turned the team’s fortunes around.

After strengthening the squad ahead of his fist full year in charge, Gibson secured promotion to the Premier Division by finishing second last season.
