Scottish side Livingston appoints Efe Ambrose as coach

Efe Ambrose lands coaching job

There’s plenty of experience to tap from Efe Ambrose — Livingston FC.

Livingston Football Club has appointed Efe Ambrose as an assistant coach of its reserve team.

The former Super Eagles defender, who also currently plays active football with the Scottish Premier League side alongside Gary Meley will assist reserve team manager Marvin Bartley.

The trio of Marvin, Ambrose, and Gary will take over the reins from Stevie Pittman and Derek McWilliams who departed the club back in June this year.

In a statement on the club’s website, Ambrose and Gary were branded “two massive characters.”

The statement continued: “But in all seriousness, they both bring their own high level of expertise. Stretch {Gary} has been a goalkeeper for a long time and he’s now passing on that experience to the younger goalkeepers at the club and Efe has played at the absolute highest level so to have him involved is absolutely brilliant for us and the boys will love working with him.”

Livingston’s Head of Football Operations David Martindale added, “Stretch and Efe are more than capable and they will bring a variety of skills to assist Marv. Both fantastic individuals and professionals in their own right.

“All 3 of the guys are very different but collectively they will do fantastically well in my opinion.

“I’m delighted that we can call the trio our reserve management team – the lads at the reserves couldn’t be in any better hands.”

Ambrose first test from the bench will be later today, as Livingston reserve team slugs it out with Greenock Morton at Cappielow.
