Lawson and former Dons captain Anderson take over at Formartine

Formartine United have announced former Staggies player Paul Lawson as their new first team manager.

Lawson will be joined by Aberdeen favourite Russell Anderson, who will be taking on the role of assistant manager at the club.

The duo will officially take charge on Saturday when the Pitmedden team welcome Keith to North Lodge Park.

Both will be in attendance for tonight’s Highland League clash against Lossiemouth.

Lawson was a part of previous manager Kris Hunter’s playing squad but whether he will carry on as an active competitor is not yet known.
