In the second part of our Women’s Football Special’s, Good John is joined by Glasgow Women’s FC Head Coach, and host of 6, 8 and 10 podcast.
Craig talks us through his coaching career and how chance meeting’s led to him getting involved with Women’s Football in the first place. He talks about earlier roles within Glasgow Uni Under 19’s, Glasgow City Under 13’s and Rangers Under 14’s before he went back to City as Head Coach of the Development squad. Craig talks about the pride of seeing players from his group go onto make it into the City first team and other clubs and why City ultimately have been so dominant in Women’s Football.
Last December, Craig took up the Head Coach position at Glasgow Women FC of SWPL2. One of his first tasks was to adapt to life after the Coronavirus outbreak and he talks about how he helped keep the girls in good shape physically and, more importantly, mentally. Now that the football has started, he talks about the hopes for Glasgow Women for the season and the challenges they face against sides like Aberdeen, Hamilton, Dundee United and St Johnstone.
