The 2012–13 season was Brechin City's seventh consecutive season in the Scottish Second Division, having been relegated from the Scottish First Division at the end of the 2005–06 season.[1] Brechin also competed in the Challenge Cup, League Cup and the Scottish Cup.

Summary[edit]

Season[edit]

Brechin finished third in the Scottish Second Division,[2] entering the play-offs losing 4–3 to Alloa Athletic on aggregate in the Semi-final and remained in the Scottish Second Division.[3] They reached the first round of the Challenge Cup,[4] the first round of the League Cup[5] and the fourth round of the Scottish Cup.[6]

Management[edit]

They began the season under the management of Jim Weir.[7] On 29 September 2012,[8] Weir was sacked by the club following poor results.[9] Andy Millen and Kevin McGowne took over in caretaker capacities on 30 September 2012 following Weir's departure.[9] The pair were in charge for the match against Arbroath the following week.[10] On 9 October 2012, Ray McKinnon was appointed as the new manager, taking over with Brechin third from bottom.[11]

Stadium[edit]

Due to drainage problems at Glebe Park causing a string of postponements[12] and with available dates to play the postponed fixtures running out[13] Brechin took the decision to play two[14][15] home ties at Station Park.[16] This was done in an effort to avoid further postponements.[13]
