SCOTT TOMLINSON has stepped down as head coach of Jed-Forest with immediate effect. The former Selkirk player and Borders referee, who took over from Gavin Kerr at the start of the season, announced his departure this afternoon, after watching his team lose to Musselburgh yesterday. Tomlinson made it clear after that match that he was deeply disappointed with the team’s lack of discipline.
“I would like to thank the coaching team of Neil Cook, Mike Howe, John Auckenlek and Jeeves for their patience and support over the past couple of years during very challenging times with covid, it’s been very much appreciated.
“I would like also to give thanks to the Jed-Forest management and supporters for their support and I wish them all the best for the rest of the season and for the future.
“Lastly thank you to Ali Campbell and Colin Yourston for providing me the opportunity to coach at Jedforest Rfc.
“On finishing, thank you to all those players who have supported me in my time at Jed and wish you all, every success in the future.”
