Mark Roberts was head coach at Queen’s Park from September 2018 until December 2019, and has the second shortest reign of any head coach, with only Graeme Elder in charge for fewer games than the 60 games Roberts was.
His playing career saw him turn out for ten different senior clubs, most notably at Partick Thistle and Ayr United.
He became Ayr United's player/manager in 2012 and lasted 18 months in charge. After this, he played for Hurlford in the Ayrshire Junior Leagues, before joining Queen's as Gus MacPherson's assistant in August 2018.
Following Gus' departure the following month, he was appointed Head Coach in September 2018, but despite wins over Clyde and Peterhead early in his tenure, the team never looked like challenging for a play off spot.
Season 2019/20 saw a similar pattern, with the team unable to string any sort of consistent run together, despite highlights such as beating Championship side Queen of the South in the Scottish Cup in November.
Following a 3-2 defeat at Annan shortly before New Year, Roberts was relieved of his duties as the club entered its new era of professionalism.
