March 17 – Car manufacturer Peugeot has supplied the Scottish FA with a fleet of new cars and vans which will used by its elite youth coaching teams.
All the cars will be split between the Elite Coaching Team and the Under 21 Team management. The Elite Coaching Team operates as part of the Scottish FA’s Performance Strategy, which provides seven regional performance schools.
Scottish FA commercial director Chris Rawlings said: “Scottish FA coaching staff travel the length and breadth of the country frequently as they strive to develop our talented young footballers. We are delighted to have the support of Free2Move Lease which will provide our coaches with the use of a fleet of Peugeot vehicles as we aim to inspire a nation to love football.“
The Elite Coaching Team provides coaching for young players between 11 and 16 years old and is focussed on ensuring emerging talent competes against the best players every day. The SFA estimates that by the time the young players graduate, they will each have received 10,000 hours of quality ball time.
