Peter Grant named as Scotland U21 assistant coach

Tuesday, 16 May 2017


Peter Grant will assist Scot Gemmill at this year’s Toulon Tournament and the forthcoming 2019 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifying matches.

The former Scotland international and Norwich City head coach will join Scot’s backroom team in France for the Toulon Tournament later this month where Scotland Under-20s will face in Czech Republic, Brazil and Indonesia in Group C. He will then join up with the under-21 squad in September for their opening qualification match against Netherlands.

Peter brings with him a wealth of coaching experience having also worked at West Ham United, Celtic, Birmingham City, Aston Villa, Nottingham Forest and Fulham, where he is currently employed as lead development coach.

As a player, Peter played for Celtic, Norwich City, Reading and Bournemouth and earned two Scotland caps.

He said: “I was lucky enough to play for Scotland at youth level and for the senior squad and loved every minute of it so it is a great honour to be asked to help nurture the next generation of international players.

“I would like to thank Fulham for their support in allowing me to perform this role. I am looking forward to meeting up with Scot and the rest of the team later this month as we prepare for the Toulon Tournament.”

Scot Gemmill, national youth team coach, said: “Peter is a highly-respected coach and will provide us with great experience ahead of an exciting and challenging period for our young players. I am looking forward to working with him in the coming months.”

Scot will announce his Scotland U20 squad for this year’s Toulon Tournament at 1pm tomorrow.
