057 Chris Mackie part 1: rebuilding Fauldhouse and why they should be heading west, not east

CHRIS MACKIE took over at Fauldhouse a year ago – but has only managed two games in that time. A squad transformed by the man of many clubs as a player returned to training last week. They’re gearing up for their first season in the East of Scotland League after quitting the juniors at the end of the latest campaign. But if Chris had had his way they’d be playing in the west. The former Clydebank and St Anthony’s striker felt it would have made sense. Especially when, three miles down the road, it’s exactly where Harthill will line up Instead though geography will force The Hoose to head in the opposite direction. Chris joins us this week and tells us why he doesn’t agree with that – but why any move was better than staying where they were. We’ll also hear about the changes he’s implemented at Park View – and where he wants to take the club. It’s a great listen – but it’s not all either. We’ll have a second part looking back at Chris’ eventful playing career in the coming weeks. It’s all here as we go Down The Divisions.
