It is Mulheron’s second time in charge of the Speyside club and he will take over the reins on Wednesday night for the league match at home to Clach.

Roy stepped down following Saturday’s 8-0 home defeat against Fraserburgh, saying off-field matters contributed to his decision to quit the post.

He told the Northern Scot: "There’s been a few things happening that I wasn’t very happy with. That with Saturday’s result kind of made my mind up.

"I started asking was it really worth it and I decided after that I’d had enough, I wasn’t enjoying it anymore."

Roy’s assistant boss Mulheron now takes on the post, the Speysiders’ third manager in the space of a year.

He previously bossed the team five years ago for a 15-month spell, and will this time be assisted by club coach Willie Duncan.

Rothes’ match against Clach is one of eight Highland League games being played on Wednesday night.

For the second midweek running, Lossiemouth play host to Forres Mechanics, seeking revenge for the North Cup penalty shoot-out defeat the Cans inflicted on them last time out.

The Coasters will be without defender Scott Wilson due to a foot injury, while Forres welcome back Stuart Soane and also have striker Lee Fraser fit despite dislocating his shoulder in the 5-0 win against Buckie on Saturday.

Buckie have the chance to bounce back quickly from that result when they play host to unbeaten Formartine United.

And Keith face a tough away match against an Inverurie Locos side which has won their four league games so far.

Meanwhile, all five Moray clubs will find out who they play in this season’s William Hill Scottish Cup this afternoon (Tuesday).

The first round draw is made at 1pm with 15 Highland League sides in the ballot.

The full draw will be on the Northern Scot website soon after it is made.
