Player Showcase: Thank You

Last updated: 9.49pm, Saturday 4th July 2015 by

The PFA Scotland/DPS Group Player Showcase and Exit Trial might be over but the hard part has only just begun.

It's now over to the players to further impress any managers, coaches and scouts that contact them in pre-season and hopefully win themselves a contract for the 2015/16 season.

Day 5 motley crew

We'd like to thank all the managers and clubs for their turnout on Saturday and also the media for their fantastic coverage throughout the week and raising the players profiles.

At PFA Scotland we'll be doing all we can to support the boys (including washing all the kit!) who took part last week as well as our members in general.

PS aftermath - dirty kit

There's also a few thank you's to get through -

Our sponsors DPS Group for their support and inparticular Managing Director John Green and Fiona Hunter for their delivery of the education aspect - the boys really enjoyed the CV Writing and Interview Technique workshops.

Showcase IT 2

New College Lanarkshire and Todd Lumsden for allowing us to use their base at the Broadwood Campus for the week - from the changing rooms to the gym and classrooms, it was first class. Todd also gave the boys a short presentation on the courses available at NCL for them to study.


Graeme Atkinson and his staff at Broadwood for the pitch time and doing all they could to accommodate us.

Our Insurance Partners Sport Insure - who covered all the players for the week. Martin Delany and his team have been great supporters and we look forward to working them again in the future.

Steven Dow and Football Nation for the amazing Red and Blue strips the players wore in Saturday's Exit Trial.

Kurt Anderson and Police Scotland for giving the boys advice on a future career on the beat.

Fitness Trainer Alan Thomson, who spoke to the boys about volunteering at the Kibble School, Paisley.

All of our guest coaches - John Rankin, Mark Wilson, Craig Easton, Neil McCann, Todd Lumsden, Allan Moore and Goalkeeping coach Paul Gallacher. Plus Sports Therapist Dominic Green, of DG Injury Clinic, and Dunfermline physio Kenny Murray.

Showcase Day 2 - caochesDay 4 coaches

Last, but not least, the players who got involved and our resident Head Coaches Andrew Barrowman and Richard Brittain along with goalie coach Derek Gaston - we couldn't have done it without you guys!
