New Scotland Flag Coach Announced

Organisation: Scottish Flag Football Association

The National Programme is pleased to announce that Glasgow Tigers Coach Mark Fletcher has been appointed Head Coach of the Scotland Senior Flag Squad.

Mark was appointed to the post in September, but due to unforeseen bureaucracy between the NP and the SFFA this offer was rescinded. Thankfully the said bureaucracy has now been cleared up and Mark has thankfully agreed to take up the post.

National Director for Flag, Stuart McKay said, "I believe Mark is by far the best coach for the job and will carry on the approach of fair, competitive and passionate football.", he continued, "I would ask that Mark be given time to organise the squad considering the lack of movement on this front in the last few months."

Team Scotland have been invited to an international tournament in England to face the hosts, Wales, Ireland and a USA Air Force Team. With the tournament in February, it may be too early for the squad to prepare, and so they may need to sit this one out.  

Coach Fletcher will appoint his coaching staff in due course, and will be helped in his role by Scotland manager Steven Maxwell, who has agreed to continue in his role for 6 months.
