TRANENT Juniors are searching for a third permanent manager of 2020.

Johnny Harvey left his role with the Foresters Park club earlier today (Thursday) having only taken on the post in February.

The former Tranent forward replaced cup winning manager Calvin Shand in the role but only took charge of a handful of games before the coronavirus halted the East of Scotland Football League.

David Innes, chairman of Tranent Juniors, said: “Team manager Johnny Harvey has left his position with immediate effect.

“The club would like to thank Johnny and his staff for their efforts during these uncertain times.”

Harvey, who previously managed Haddington Athletic, had spoken of his delight at taking over his hometown club earlier this year.

However, with the new campaign potentially kicking off in less than a fortnight, Tranent are on the lookout for a new manager.
