Livingston made the announcement on the club official website, club captain Marvin Bartley will take up the role of Reserve Team Manager, assisted by Efe Ambrose and Gary Maley following the departure of Stevie Pittman and Derek McWilliams.
Bartley said: “Efe and Stretch [Maley] are two massive characters but in all seriousness, they both bring their own high level of expertise,” Bartley told the
“Stretch has been a goalkeeper for a long time and he’s now passing on that experience to the younger goalkeepers at the club and Efe has played at the absolute highest level so to have him involved is absolutely brilliant for us and the boys will love working with him.”
Livingston Head of Football Operations David Martindale also expressed his delight with the new reserve coaching crew and believes they will perform well in their new roles.
“Stretch and Efe are more than capable and they will bring a variety of skills to assist Marv. Both fantastic individuals and professionals in their own right,” Martindale said.
“All three of the guys are very different but collectively they will do fantastically well in my opinion.
“I’m delighted that we can call the trio our reserve management team – the lads at the reserves couldn’t be in better hands.”
