Coach and Player Development Officer, Ian Ross, had a terriffic turnout for the latest coach education course, involving a group of students from the University of Stirling who have joined the Scottish FA Central Region CashBack Volunteering Programme

The Scottish FA Central Region also has partnerships with Clydebank College (for the Dunbartonshire area); Forth Valley College (for the Forth Valley area) and Motherwell College (for North Lanarkshire) as well as the University of Stirling where the Central Region office is based.

Since November 2008, over 100 volunteers have been recruited, trained and deployed in programmes throughout the region.

This volunteering programme has been made possible by the Scottish Government CashBack For Communities Fund, which ploughs cash siezed from criminals back into communities.
