Community football coaches in East Dunbartonshire are set to offer their know-how to local Quality Mark clubs with a mentoring programme.

In the last year, seven of the local authority’s community coaches have achieved their Level 4 Children’s award.

The move follows investment from the sports development team at East Dunbartonshire Council.

And now the newly qualified coaches will provide four training sessions based on the knowledge they have gained from the award.

Kevin Murphy, Scottish FA football development officer, explained: “The coaches will support the players on a technical level, as well as showcase and support the club coaches with content they have learned from the course.”

If you are a Quality Mark club and would like to benefit from this mentoring programme, please contact Kevin on 0141 578 8431 or email
