Jim McIntyre has been named as Allan Johnston's successor as manager of Queen of the South.

The Palmerston board moved quickly to appoint a new manager after Alan Johnston and Sandy Clark decided that pastures were greener elsewhere and signed a deal with Kilmarnock much to the disappointment of the Doonhamer faithful.

41 year old McIntyre arrives at Palmerston with an impressive CV despite being sacked by Dunfermline last year after a long run of disappointing results.

Jim McIntrye was appointed Dunfermline manager in January 2008 following a stint as caretaker manager after Stephen Kenny lost his job. He guided them to a 5th place finish at the end of the season, which was followed by an improved third in the table in his first full season in charge. In 2010/11 Dunfermline stormed to the First Division title and won promotion to the SPL.

McIntyre being a midfield/striker himself advocates attacking football which will appease the Palmy support.

We welcome Jim to Palmerston and let's get behind him and hope we can have another successful season.
