Aberdeen FC Community Trust are running a new programme for grassroots clubs within the city in partnership with the Scottish Football Association and Aberdeen City Council.

The McDonalds Community Club Project is a new initiative which will see a member of the Scottish Football Association coaching staff work individually with the club coaches of a grassroots club within the city for approximately six months. The project is in association with McDonalds, who part fund the programme.

Scottish Football Association Development Officer Liam Duncan who works with AFCCT will work with Cove Youth Football Club and Culter Youth Football Club for the next 6 months. Aberdeen Football Club Community Trust will work in partnership with the Scottish FA in delivering the McDonalds Community Club project.

Liam said on the role: “It’s an extremely exciting project to be a part of. This is a great opportunity for grassroots clubs within the city, and the project is sure to make a massive difference to players and coaches. The programme is designed specifically for the grassroots clubs we are working with, so the impact we are having in these clubs is substantial.”

The programme will see Liam work specifically with the coaches of Cove Youth Football Club and Culter Youth Football Club with the aim to mentor the coaches on specific aspects of the game. This in turn will feed back to the players, as they reap the benefits of their coaches getting specific one to one work with a member of the Scottish Football Association. The project will see Liam work with several grassroots clubs within the city of Aberdeen over a 4 year period after an application process.
