Berwick Rangers can confirm that Robbie Horn will not be continuing in his role as assistant manager with the club for the 2015/2016 campaign, after deciding to move on from the position.
The popular assistant manager was a stalwart of the 2006/2007 championship winning side – showing his class as he lifted the cup as stand-in captain alongside Grant McNicholl, and rejoined Rangers following a successful stint in charge of Vale of Leithen.
Such is Horn’s love for the club, he’d return to Berwick to take on the number two role under assistant manager Ian Little despite his own side sitting top of the league at the time.
After Little had been relieved of his duties, Robbie’s position became unclear but his loyalty shone through once again, the former Scotland youth international’s knowledge of the division and squad proving invaluable at that time of Colin Cameron’s appointment.
The club would like to extend a sincere thank you to Robbie for his service, and wish him every success in any future ventures.
In other staff news, club therapist Steven Shaw has left the club following the conclusion of the current campaign.
Steven has been with Berwick for the full season, and based in Sunderland has demonstrated his commitment by regularly travelling hundreds of miles to home and away games as well as training sessions.
On his departure, Steven noted: “I’d like to thank fans for their patience and support throughout what has been a sadly disappointing season.
“When I join a club my main aims are to increase the professionalism levels and provide the players with the best possible support, treatment and rehabilitation that they can get, with the resources available.
“Our injury record is pretty impressive and would be the top of the English Premier League – we’ve lost only 493 days in total to injury. With that in mind I’d like to think I’ve achieved that.
“I wish the club the best of luck next year, hopefully it’ll be more successful!”.
The club would also like to wish Steven the best of luck in his future, and thank him for his time and effort during his time with the club.
