Club Statement: Martin Canning

I confirm that our manager Martin Canning has left the club by mutual agreement and we will be advertising for a replacement. 

With the departure of so many important players over the last two seasons (Michael Devlin, Eamonn Brophy, Lewis Ferguson, Ali Crawford and Greg Docherty) it has become increasingly difficult to maintain the playing levels and results previously reached. Martin and the Board feel that a change was necessary to give the Club the best opportunity to get back to those levels. 

The club would like to thank Martin for his commitment and efforts during his ten and a half years at the club as both a player and a manager. He played in over 200 games including the play-off match at Hibs in May 2014 when we secured our place in the Premier League and has managed the Club in the top division for the last four seasons. He has successfully managed to maintain our status in the Premier League and we will be forever grateful for his part in this achievement.  

Under 18’s coach Jason Scotland has also left the club and again we thank him for his efforts and contribution both as a player and a coach.

Guillaume Beuzelin and George Cairns will be in charge of first team affairs until further notice.

Saturday’s match against Dundee will be very important as we try to get back to winning ways and we ask that all Hamilton supporters come along and get behind the team.

Allan Maitland

Chairman
