Glasgow City unveiled former Scotland internationalist Scott Booth as their new Head Coach yesterday.
A highly successful striker with Aberdeen, Booth signed for then Champions League holders Borussia Dortmund in 1997, before moving to Dutch sides Utrecht, Vitesse and FC Twente, and finally returning home to finish his career with the Dons.
A member of the Scotland national team, Booth was part of the Scotland squad which competed in the country's last major championships at Euro 96 and France 98.
A UEFA Pro Licence Holder, Booth was part of former Scottish FA Peformance Director Mark Wotte's team looking after the male youth national teams from Under 16 to Under 21, before departing the SFA to take charge of Stenhousemuir.
Commenting on his appointment, City Club Manager, Laura Montgomery said, "We are delighted to appoint Scott as our new Head Coach. If I am honest, we were very excited about advertising the post but even Carol Anne (Stewart) and I were astounded by the quantity and quality of applicants.
"Advertising for UEFA Pro Licence holders we thought would narrow the field, but we were overwhelmed with quality applications from home and abroad. It was difficult to narrow it down to only a few for interview and once we did, we thought Scott was perfect for the position.
"His energy and enthusiasm for the role is evident after only 24 hours in charge and I very much look forward to working with him on a daily basis. The players have taken to him immediately and have been impressed and that is a real positive, so hopefully only more good things are to come."
Booth's first game in charge is against Celtic this Sunday at the Excelsior Stadium, 2.30pm. Entry is £5 adults, £3 concessions and kids under 16 are free.
