New SFA initiative will help Milngavie Wanderers

Milngavie Wanderers football club are gearing up for the new season with an exciting new collaboration involving their junior secton and the SFA and Sports Scotland.

The Pathway Initiative aims to ensure players’ full potential is realised through a structured program which sets objectives focusing on conduct and professionalism.

Club spokespeson David Caldwell said: “Our vision is to support community players and parents by offering them good solid advice, backed by consistent actions and best practice. If you are looking for your child just to enjoy a game of football or looking for advanced coaching with one to one mentoring, our methodology is to provide a professional platform for any player to achieve their goals as part of their development program.”

Caldwell added that they are still at the early stages but have already attracted good sponsorship and personal feedback from the players and parents currently involved at the club. For more on this
