Cupar Hearts’ most successful manager of all time has decided to step down after 7 years at the helm.

Robson Sibanda along with his assistant David Lumsden have blown full-time on their illustrious careers and will take a break from football.

The duo took over in 2007 with high expectations after a successful season which saw Hearts reach the Scottish Cup final and win the Fife Cup for the first time in their history.

Their achievements however have gone above and beyond anyone’s imagination leading Cupar to an incredible 17 trophies including 3 Fife Cup’s and 5 League Championships. This outstanding feat also saw a record breaking 4th consecutive Kingdom Caledonian League Title.

Craig Lumsden with Charles Anderson as his assistant took charge at the end of the season and are local men who have both played for the Club.

Craig Lumsden joins Hearts new to management after a successful playing career where he played professionally for Dunfermline Athletic, East Fife and Forfar then at junior level with Oakley and Ballingry and latterly at amateur level with Cupar Hearts.

The new appointments bring about an exciting new chapter in the rich history of the Club.

Robson Sibanda and David Lumsden both received awards as a token of the Clubs appreciation.
