Playing career

Born in Kirkcaldy, Kirk began his career with Fife side East Fife in 1979 and made 25 appearances for the Methil side before moving to English First Division side Stoke City for £10,000 in 1981. He made just twelve appearances fro Stoke during the 1981–82 season and after failing to hold down a place in the first team he was released from his contract.[1]

He returned to Scotland to play for Partick Thistle. Kirk returned to Bayview in 1982 and stayed for four years, scoring 35 times in 135 appearances and famously helping the Fifers beat Hibs in a memorable Scottish Cup third round replay in 1984, the same season East Fife clinched promotion from Division Two. In 1986, Kirk began a nine-year association with Motherwell, which saw him play over 300 league games and score the winner in the 1991 Scottish Cup final. After leaving Fir Park in 1995, Kirk had spells with Falkirk and Raith Rovers before returning first club in East Fife in 1998, eventually becoming player/manager. Kirk's managerial role lasted some fifteen months before his departure in late 1999. Kirk's last senior club was Arbroath, whom he joined in late 2000, becoming player-manager in December 2003 and leaving the following August. From here, Kirk became player/manager at Dundonald Bluebell, adopting a similar position at Lochgelly Albert in September 2006. Kirk was appointed manager of Glenrothes Juniors on June 30, 2009.
