Former Dunfermline Athletic and Millwall forward Stevie Crawford has resigned as manager of the East End Park club.

The 47-year-old is a Pars legend after over 200 appearances as a player alongside a spell down south with Millwall, spending time at eight other clubs in his playing career. Dunfermline were beaten by Raith Rovers at the quarter-final stage of this season’s Scottish Premiership promotion play-offs.

Crawford guided Dunfermline to a fourth place finish in the regular Scottish Championship season. He returned to East End Park in January 2019 and won 33 of his 88 games in charge. Prior to his resignation, he was the 16th longest-serving manager in Scotland.

Chairman Ross McArthur said: “I have accepted the resignation of Stevie Crawford as our First Team Manager. I developed a very good and close working relationship with Stevie and wish to place on record our huge thanks to him for his efforts over the last 28 months.

“Stevie worked tirelessly behind the scenes despite the very many challenges that he had to face. On behalf of the DAFC Board, Staff and Support I would like to wish Stevie and his family our very best wishes for the future.  Our search for a new Manager, to replace Stevie, has now commenced.”
