Bean gets job to place Bath’s splashes

Graham Bean, the deputy sports editor at The Scotsman, is to move offices at his publishers in Edinburgh to take over as sports editor at Scotland on Sunday.

Bean takes over from Richard Bath, who is stepping down after five years as sports editor on the title.

Bath is to remain on the Johnston Press-owned paper’s staff, doing more writing from his home in Ayrshire.

Plans at the moment are that Bath will continue to edit the sports pages until Bean takes over, probably by the end of this month.
