Stenhousemuir are still a League One team, but they’ll tackle the new season without captain Ross McMillan.

However, the Warriors will have a familiar face back in the ranks as Davie Irons has signed up as part of Brown Ferguson’s backroom team.

Ferguson is meeting with his team this week to outline his 2015-16 plans and who else features in them, but captain McMillan and goalkeeper Chris Smith have moved on. They’ll link up with ex-Warriors boss Martyn Corrigan at Stirling Albion in a side developing a real Ochilview flavour with Sean Dickson already Forthbank-bound.

But Ferguson is looking forward to rekindling his coaching relationship with Davie Irons.

The boss told The Falkirk herald: “It was Davie Irons who brought me to the club and it is fantastic for me to welcome him back.

“As a coach and as a person he is excellent to have around and we got on very well when he was here before he had to leave for his police work.

“He is an excellent coach and excellent to listen to.”

Irons’ arrival to aid Ferguson and Colin McMenamin means Stewart Greacen will also move on.

Ferguson added: “I’d like to place on record my gratitude to Stewart.

“He’s a great guy and we got on well and it is just a shame the circumstances didn’t work out this time around.

“I’d like to thank him for all he did when we worked together, and hope we do again.”
