Lamont is sacked by Falkirk

THE new broom at Falkirk, in the shape of owners George Deans, Wilson Young, and chairman David Holmes, finally went into overdrive last night with the sacking of manager Billy Lamont.

And this despite Lamont's record of only two league defeats since he took over during the club's crisis at the end of November after Jim Duffy had quit because of player problems.

A stunned Lamont -- brought in to quell what seemed to be a dressing room revolt, in which he was successful -- arrived at Brockville last night ''armed with new ideas to build on what has been achieved.''

Part of the official statement last night read: ''At the meeting of the board of Falkirk FC, directors gave consideration to the future direction of the club, in particular to the need to have a full-time team manager. To enable such an appointment, it was agreed to terminate Billy Lamont's part-time appointment. It was agreed that the team coach would take charge for the three games still to be played in the current season.''

This means that once again Dom Sullivan is left holding the baby for the second time this season.
