Football Academy success spreads

The Scottish Football Association’s performance school network is kicking off, in the bootsteps of the highly successful pilot programmes at Graham High School in Falkirk and Broughton High School in Edinburgh.  Five schools have joined the undertaking.  They are Holyrood High in Glasgow, St John’s, Dundee, Grange Academy, Kilmarnock, Braidhurst in Motherwell, and Hazlehead Academy in Aberdeen.  Youth Coach at Broughton is Greg Miller, Son of Alex, the former Hibernian and Aberdeen manager and Scotland and Liverpool assistant coach.  Greg was a jobbing midfielder who started out at his father’s former clubs Hibs. The 35-year-old joins the SFA having returned to his old club in a coaching capacity after bringing his playing career to a close at Arbroath in 2006.
