East Fife: Billy Brown quits post as manager

Billy Brown

Billy Brown has left his post as manager of East Fife by mutual consent.

Brown recently led the Bayview side to safety from relegation following a play-off final win over Peterhead last month.

The former Hearts and Kilmarnock assistant manager took over from Gordon Durie in November and finished in second-bottom place in Division Two.

East Fife was recently the subject of a takeover by a consortium headed by local businessman Lee Murray.
