Stevie had a great career as a player, winning the Scottish Junior Cup with Arthurlie in 1998 and being capped by Junior Scotland. He then moved to Clyde as part of the junior revolution & was a fan favourite there before moving on to Hamilton Academicals. He returned junior to Arthurlie & followed Frank Lynch to Beith in 2006 and was John Craig's regular strike partner that season. He joined the coaching staff the following season and only played 1 game where he ended up breaking his leg at Arthurlie. There was a short playing comeback at Neilston after leaving Beith when John Millar resigned in 2011.

Coach

derek Rhoddan

Derek was a forward in his playing days and his day job was an armed forces fitness trainer so needless to say the Beith boys fitness levels should be good. Derek only had a short spell as a player at Beith as injury unfortunately finished his career but the one goal he scored was a vital one against promotion contenders Vale of Clyde that season which proved to be the winner in a key game. Derek joined the coaching staff and has been a key member of the coaching team. Derek left initially but then returned to the club when Frank Lynch did in November 2012 and remained when John came back.
