The Scottish FA South West region has announced this year’s lineup for the Regional Coach Development Day.

Both of the guests, Chris McCart and Ricky Sbragia, are hugely respected at home and abroad for their outstanding contribution  to football coaching.

Chris spent most of his playing career with Motherwell, spending twelve seasons with the Fir Park club before a short spell with Falkirk.

In the season of 1990-91, he was part of Motherwell's Scottish Cup-winning side, while also winning the Scottish Challenge Cup with Falkirk in 1997-98.

After retiring from playing, Chris developed and led the respected youth department at former club Motherwell, producing a string of excellent young players before being head-hunted by Celtic to take up his current role as Head of Youth Development in June 2008

As a professional player Ricky made over 250 appearances at clubs including Birmingham City, Walsall and York City. He retired from playing in 1987 and commenced his coaching career with York as a youth-team coach.

Since then he has been recruited by Sir Alex Ferguson as reserve team coach at Manchester United,  been first team coach at Bolton Wanderers and, of course, manager at Sunderland.

Ricky is currently a key member of the Scottish FA’s performance team and coach of the national under-19 squad.  

Entry cost for the event is £10 however coaches at Quality Mark Clubs only pay £5,  this includes a buffet lunch.
