Dundee HSFP prop, Alan Brown, will join Colin Robertson’s coaching team at Mayfield for season 2014/15.
Brown will be the assistant coach for the RBS National League outfit, while continuing to play for the team.
Robertson said: "Alan will continue to lead from the front as captain. However, I’m adding this further role as he moves towards coaching.
He has a natural coaching approach and a lot of experience which will benefit many at the club. We’re looking at ways to develop our local coaches and players. However, firstly, it is a big playing year for him."
Brown said: "I’m excited about this role. It is something I've always wanted to do and looking forward to working with Colin and his team.”
