The final Scottish FA Central region coach development evening of 2009 took place at Recreation Park, Alloa on Friday 27th November.

Over 80 coaches observed the practical session delivered by Ian Cathro from Box Soccer, an innovative approach to coaching that has led to the creation of sessions focused on technical development within one box area.

SportCentral/Scottish FA football development manager Alan Morgan said:

"I was delighted with the attendance, especially considering the recent weather, and I’m sure that the coaches will have taken away lots of ideas that they can put into practice with their players.

"I would like to thank Hugh McCann from Alloa Athletic F.C for facilitating the event and allowing the U16 squad to demonstrate the practical content."

Following this year's highly succesful inservice programme, which saw over 400 coaches attend the various sessions, details of Coach Education and Coach Development sessions scheduled in 2010 will be available shortly on the Scottish FA Central Region pages.
