Sir Alex Ferguson

We were shocked and saddened last night to hear that our former manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, had undergone emergency surgery for a brain haemorraghe.

Everyone at the ‘Shire sends our heart felt best wishes thoughts and prayers for Sir Alex Ferguson and his family.

Sir Alex’s 1st step into football management was with East Stirlingshire when at the age of 32 he became manager of the ‘Shire at the start of season 1974/75. Although it was not long before his managerial talents were recognised by St. Mirren, with whom he then went on to manage, his short time with our club left a lasting memory with us all.
