ANGUS MacPHERSON

Angus MacPherson was head coach at Queen’s Park from January 2014 until September 2018.

He was a well known face in Scottish football, having had eleven years at Kilmarnock, where he was part of their Scottish Cup winning team in 1997. He then went on to play for a couple of seasons at Dunfermline, before arriving at St Mirren as assistant manager/player in the summer of 2003.

He was promoted to Manager in December 2003 and was in charge in Paisley for seven years, winning promotion to the Premiership in 2006 where he kept them until his departure at the end of the 2009/10 season.

Following this, he went onto manage Queen of the South during the 2011/12 season, his departure following their relegation to League One at the end of the season.

He arrived at Hampden in January 2014, but with the team already marooned at the bottom of the table there was little he could do to prevent a bottom place finish. The following season saw an influx of players from the Junior game, and he led the team to the play off finals in 2014/15 where they lost out to Stenhousemuir 2-1 on aggregate.

He went one better the following season, with a 3-1 win at Broadwood against Clyde in the first leg of the play off final enough to see the team promoted despite losing the Hampden leg 0-1.

Queen's survived comfortably in League One, and, with three games left, were actually in a play off spot for potential promotion to the Championship, although three defeats saw them slip to fifth, still a very creditable achievement, and the club's highest league placing for over 30 years.

A large turnover in players saw 2017/18 become a struggle at the bottom of the table, and relegation was confirmed after a play off semi final defeat at the hands of Stenhousemuir.

Perhaps feeling that he had take the club as far as he could under its amateur status, Angus left in September 2018 to become Technical Director at St Mirren.
