The Chairman and Board of Edinburgh City FC are delighted to announce that manager James McDonaugh has agreed an extension to his contract, which will now run until 31 May 2021. 

Chairman Jim Brown acknowledged James’ impact on the club, saying “Since James became manager in October last year, he has worked tirelessly to build a squad that shares his ethos of meticulous preparation, professionalism and quality; we are now seeing the results of his hard work paying off this season, not only in terms of our results, but in the quality of performance and spirit amongst the first team squad and back room staff.”

As part of his new contract, James will now have an extended remit, overseeing all on-field activities throughout the whole club, from the youth section to the first team.
