Stephen Gourley has returned to Championship side Dundela as first team manager, the club has announced.

The 42-year-old is back in Wilgar Park hot seat following Paul Harbinson's resignation at the end of the season.

In a statement on their social media channels, the club said:

"Stephen is no stranger to Wilgar Park, a club stalwart who amassed 436 games, won countless trophies, captained the club previously and won the club promotion to the championship as Manager.

"In a time of recent unsettlement following the departure of two managers in the space of seven months, the club have made this appointment to bring stability and return to the core values that are instrumental to Dundela FC as we aim to build on this season's fourth place finish.

"Joining Stephen will be another Dundela FC stalwart - Laurence Fyfe. A highly respected ex player and much sought after coach. Laurence has experienced football highs at Dundela previously as a player, Coach and Assistant Manager and has also worked at Knockbreda and Linfield.

"Ben Anderson, Tony Miskelly, Chris Binks, Steve Ferguson and Andy Harwood will form the rest of the backroom staff."
