Managers

The club advertised for a Secretary/Manager, a new post, in March 1914. There were nearly 100 applicants. A short list of 15 was drawn up and from them 3 people were to be interviewed, James Collins, who was Secretary of the Glasgow Junior League, Peter Hodge the former Secretary/Manager of Raith Rovers and Alex Raisbeck an ex-Scotland player and then playing for Partick Thistle.

Raisbeck was chosen and would take up his duties on May 1914 when the season officially closed.

The club's longest serving manager was Willie McAndrew who became manager in 1925 and stayed until 1946. McAndrew managed arguably the greatest Hamilton team when they finished 4th in the 1934–35 season, their highest ever placing, and were Scottish Cup finalists.

John Lambie has the best record in terms of league trophies; having won the Scottish First Division twice.
