Former St Johnstone boss Callum Davidson appointed as new manager of Queen’s Park SNS Group

Queen’s Park have announced that Callum Davidson has been appointed as the club’s new manager.

Davidson returns to management after leaving his position as St Johnstone boss in April last year after three years in the job.

The 47-year-old, who guided St Johnstone to a historic League Cup and Scottish Cup double in 2020-21, will now look to turn around Queen’s Park’s form and deliver progress at the ambitious Glasgow club.

The Spiders have been without a manager since Robin Veldman left in early December, with Paul Nuijten working as interim manager since.

Queen’s Park club president David Hunter said: “I am delighted to bring someone of Callum’s experience to Queen’s Park. He had a distinguished playing career, won two major trophies as a manager and he is the perfect choice to lead our club going forward.

“I would also like to thank Paul Nuijten and the coaching staff for the job they have carried out with the first team squad in recent weeks.”

Davidson said: “I am excited to be joining a club with such an illustrious history. I am impressed with the plans that Queen’s Park have for the future and am looking forward to getting on the training pitch and working with the players.”

Davidson takes over at a time of change for the Lesser Hampden side. Director of football Marijn Beuker left the club in late November to join Ajax, while chief executive Leanne Dempster’s departure was announced last week.

Queen’s Park currently sit ninth in the Championship table, level on points with bottom side Arbroath but only ten points off the play-off places.

The team’s 2-1 win over Dunfermline on Friday was their first victory in 16 matches.
