CRAIG Stewart is the new man at the helm of Deveronvale Football Club.
Vale announced this week that Stewart (45), who has been serving as interim manager over the past few weeks, had been given the job permanently.
A Deveronvale player during his career, Stewart bossed Deveronside and Ellon juniors and was assistant manager in Highland League football at both Turriff United and Formartine United.
He returned to Vale as a first team coach in 2015, eventually becoming manager Steve Dolan's assistant.
Dolan left the position last December after being told his contract would not be renewed at the end of the season.
Stewart took over as caretaker but had only been in charge for one match when the season was suspended last week due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis.
His appointment was announced on the club's Facebook, where Stewart said: “I’m very pleased to be given this opportunity and look forward to getting back to football and, hopefully, seeing fans back at Princess Royal Park.”
As well as playing for Deveronvale, Stewart also had spells at Elgin City, Buckie Thistle, Turriff and Sunnybank.
