LIZ Anderson, head coach at East Fife Girls and Ladies Football Club, has spent the last week in Cyprus with the Scottish FA and the National Women’s A Squad, looking at new ways to develop girls and women’s football at East Fife.
Liz was selected by the Scottish FA as part of an elite coach programme to develop coaches and clubs in girls’ and women’s football across Scotland.
In Cyprus, she has worked on a club development plan for East Fife, attended coaching sessions with the national squad and Mark Wotte, the Scottish FA’s performance director.
The coaches have also looked at new ways of coaching football to youngsters, sports science technology and nutrition programmes.
Liz said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for me as an individual and East Fife as a club.
“We have all worked very hard during our time here and I have learnt a great deal from some of the finest coaches in men’s and women’s football.
“I am very keen to integrate much of what I have learned into what we do at East Fife.
“Girls’ and women’s football is the fastest growing sport in Scotland, with more opportunities that ever before, for females to make a career from playing football.
“I am keen to get back to the club and start working towards creating Scotland’s future stars.”
