The club is delighted to confirm the addition of Myles Allan to the coaching staff of the SWPL2 side.
Having left his coaching post at Berwick Rangers, Myles was enjoying a break whilst “keeping his eye in” by continuing his scouting work. He answered a call from SJWFC Team Manager Jason McCrindle to assist the women’s side on a short-term basis but has now agreed to make the move more permanent.
Myles explained “I’ve had a couple of opportunities since leaving Berwick that, for personal reasons, weren’t right for me at the time. When Jason got in touch, the timing was perfect. I’ve enjoyed the last few weeks getting to know the squad. There is a lot of quality and the work ethic is excellent. I know the girls have been disappointed with the results so far but their performances have been good and getting better with every game. If we keep improving as we have been then better results will come. Jason and I have worked together before and get on really well. I’m looking forward to working with him again as well as with John and Scott”.
General Manager Steve Grossi welcomed the appointment “I am delighted that Myles has accepted the opportunity to join Jason's coaching team. He has made an immediate impact at training and on match days with the playing squad and fitted in perfectly with Jason, John and Scott. Myles has excellent coaching and scouting experience and the fact that he has committed to us is a compliment to the players and their attitude in the last few weeks as well as an indication of our commitment to these players. I wish Myles every success here and look forward to watching him continue his work”.
Myles rose through the ranks during his time with Berwick Rangers, initially joining as a first-team scout before becoming co-manager of the club’s Under 20’s side, and eventually being promoted to first team coach. Previously Myles was Manager at Burntisland Shipyard and assistant manager at Dundonald Bluebell, Sauchie & Rosyth Juniors.
