Coaching staff

Stevie Farrell
Manager

sfarrell1617

Stephen began his playing career with Kilmarnock, before joining Stoke City in January 1990, but only made two appearances for the English club. Farrell returned to Scotland and had spells at St Mirren, Stranraer and Stenhousemuir, before seeing out his career at junior level.

His first coaching role saw him take the top job at Cumnock Juniors in March 2009, as successor to former Blues boss Campbell Money. In December 2012, Farrell was appointed assistant manager of Stranraer, and along with Aitken steered the club clear of relegation, before helping the club to the playoffs in 2013/14 and 2014/15.

After a successful year and a half as Aitken's assistant at Championship side Dumbarton, Farrell returned to Stair Park in January 2017 and guided the club out of the relegation zone to a 7th place finish.

Chris Aitken
Assistant Manager

Chris Aitken

A skilful and hard-working central midfielder, Chris joined his brother and then-manager Stephen at Stranraer from Stirling Albion in 2011. The former Morton, Clyde and Hamilton Accies player chipped in with 33 goals in 151 appearances for the Blues as the clubs dead ball specialist and penalty taker, before becoming first team coach in 2015, then assistant manager in 2016.


Alan Waddell
1st Team Coach

Alan Waddell

Alan initially joined the Blues as Dexi Wingate's number two in charge of the under 19s. After becoming 1st team coach at the Blues, the former Pollok and Arthurlie striker left Stranraer for a short spell as assistant manager at the 'Lie.

Waddell was reunited with Aitken and Farrell as 1st team coach at Dumbarton, before resuming where he left off under Farrell at Stair Park in 2017.


Eric Phillips

Eric Phillips

A popular figure at the club, Eric has overseen the development of several Blues keepers over the past few seasons, after a successful career as a goalie at junior level.


Stuart Millar

After his departure from Stair Park, he had a spell as assistant to Neil at Ayr United and also a spell as manager at Clyde, but it is his reputation in scouting that he is now most renowned for.

He returned to the club from Dumbarton to take up a new role in 2017. Prior to his time at the Rock, Stuart scouted for several clubs including Ross County and West Bromwich Albion.
