ECU Technical Director of Football Steven McGarry said Johnstone has hit the ground running.

“We’re delighted to have Derek on board, and he’s brought a huge amount of experience to the role, and has been working extremely hard since we brought him in.” he explained.

“The 18’s trials have been taking place over the last few weeks and they will be looking for another successful season, and with Derek at the helm we think we will.

“The club have a reputation of bringing young players through the ranks and we brought some of the 18’s into the first team squad last season and we will be looking to do the same this season.”
