June 2008

 Spartans are delighted to announce that Scottish Internationalist Shelley Kerr is joining the Club as Head Coach and Player of the Womens Premier League team. The appointment is "a  tremendous pre season boost that will provide the platform for the continuing development of womens' and girls football in the Lothians".

It’s with great delight I’ve accepted the role of Player coach with Spartans F.C for the coming season.  Spartans are a forward thinking club with great ambition and access to one of the best new facilities in the women’s game.  The fantastic facilities fit every ambitious players and coaches football requirements, which will hopefully have a positive effect on the way the team train and play football.  I’m looking forward to technically and tactically challenging myself and a squad that has huge potential to progress and further develop within the women’s game in Scotland.
Carson Ralton coach with ELFC for the last two seasons states "I am absolutely delighted that Shelley Kerr has joined Spartans as a player and head coach of the premier league team. Shelley's success in the game to date is monumental and her experience and determination to succeed will be a huge asset to Spartans. Shelley is highly respected throughout the women's game and the current players at Spartan's are very excited with her arrival. Walter McGill and I are looking forward to working with and supporting Shelley both on and off the park. Spartan's have a young squad which I am sure will blossom under Shelley's leadership".
