Leeann Dempster has joined Queen’s Park as chief executive after leaving Hibs.

Dempster said she had “big plans” for the ambitious League Two leaders after six years at Easter Road.

Queen’s Park, the oldest club in Scotland, ditched their amateur status in November 2019 and have brought in a number of players from higher divisions. They plan to leave Hampden soon to move into Lesser Hampden.

Dempster, who also previously led Motherwell, said: “Anyone who knows me understands that I want to create clubs that supporters are proud of on and off the pitch.

“Already real progress is being made on the pitch. The community part of clubs, the ability to touch lives through what we do, has always been a big appeal to me and Queen’s Park has big plans in that regard which we will reveal as we move forward.

“I’m excited to be here and looking forward to getting on with the work.”
