Whittaker has retired from playing, becomes a first team coach alongside Greg Shields.

We have also appointed a new head physio and sports scientist

Good to get the backroom sorted and in order, look forward to seeing what Peter has lined up for the squad now!

Yep backroom sorted let the fun begin!! Seriously though it's good for players to know who will be working with them day to day.
Whittaker and Shields have good knowledge to help young players out

Does this mean there won't be an assistant manager? Is OFW staying as primary goalkeeping coach?

I hope they have a plan to replace Whittaker. He was a big part in us, generally, being so solid last season.

He played in 24 matches and we only lost 4 of them.

He was conspicuous by his absence in the major debacles at Dens and Starks Park.

I love it when we go sell Kevin Nisbet,
He's gonna pay for everyone this season.

Surprised Whittaker retired to be honest, thought he had another year in him easy at this level...

I`m actually quite relieved that Whittaker is retiring as a player. When he did play he was an asset but it`s inevitable that at his age he would be available for fewer games next season and we need some stability in midfield. Maybe he`ll be more useful passing his knowledge and experience on to a successor - Paul Allan maybe. It`s refreshing that PG is prepared to work with existing coaching staff rather start from scratch.

The new physio and sports scientist come with good credentials, having previously been with Rangers and Hibs.

Sounds a good set up but I'll be happier when I see steps being taken to rebuild the squad. I realise PGs only been in a few days though and will want to get all these posts sorted.

another change of physio is more of a surprise than Whittaker retiring for me, 3rd in 3 or 4 years now.

presuming there is no change with Fon Williams, at least thats the staff sorted, now on to the squad.
