Dennistoun Thistle AFC is a newly formed men’s amateur football club in the East end of Glasgow. We already have a manager in place and a squad of 20+ players ready to go now all we need is you!

We’re looking for a coach to join our team that’s qualified to 1.3 or C license level on the SFA’s main coaching pathway.

The team is in its infancy and this is a great opportunity for someone to come on board and help shape the success of the club. Working alongside the manager you will be responsible for running the team’s training sessions, match day preparation, squad selection, help the team through their matches on game day and on occasions when the manager can’t make it then you also need to be confident enough to step up and take charge.

Whether you’re new to coaching and looking to build up the skills and experience you need to further your coaching career or a seasoned pro looking for your next challenge we want to hear from you!

If you’re interested in the role then please email dennistounthistle@gmail.com with some information about yourself and your interest in the role and our manager will arrange a call/meeting with you.

As with all amateur football clubs the club is not for profit and therefore this position is unpaid.
