born in Scotland

Kris Mark Doolan was born on Thursday, 11th December, 1986, in Irvine, North Ayrshire. The former striker is currently operating as manager of Partick Thistle.


(Sun-12-Feb-2023 ↔ to date)

After almost 4 years in exile, Kris Doolan returned to Partick Thistle in mid-January 2023, taking over as the head coach of the Partick Thistle U-18 team. Just 4 weeks later, Ian McCall was “relieved of his managerial duties” and Kris was asked to take over as interim manager of the first team. As he himself put it, “for the club I love, I couldn't not step up to help”. He was appointed permanent manager after just 3 games and went on to have an excellent start, losing just twice in nineteen games, a run which had the Jags on the brink of a dream return to the Premiership, in the end denied only by a penalty shoot-out in a dramatic play-off final at Dingwall.
