Robb reflective after parting from Keith

Ewan Robb is disappointed to leave Keith but says he departs with his head held high

The Maroons have parted with boss Robb and assistant Martin Skinner with the club sitting 15th in the Highland League.

They took over from Allan Hale and Gavin Weymss in the summer. During his tenure, Robb won three league games as Keith struggled.

He also became frustrated at not being able to field a settled side and was set to implement club fines for players who missed matches because of holidays or short breaks.

On his departure, Robb said: “I’m disappointed that we didn’t get to see it through.

“But I fully understand there are away to be changes made at the club and it’s a results-driven business and the results haven’t been good enough.

“We were only able to sign one player.

“We were never really going to get to sign players until January and the end of the season. We had players that we were targeting but now we’re not going to be able to see that through.

“I’m not going to bad-mouth anybody because I’m grateful for the past two years, it was a lot of fun and there are a lot of good people at the club.”

A statement from club chairman Andy Troup said: “The board wish to put on record their thanks to Ewan and Martin for their considerable hard work and efforts during a challenging period of transition for the club. We wish them well in the future.

“The process to recruit a new management team will begin in due course and first team coach Dean Donaldson will take control for the interim period.”
