Coaching award for Melrose

MELROSE are the first side in the Scottish Premiership to be awarded the prestigious Positive Coaching Scotland accreditation.

The award will be presented at the Greenyards on Sunday by Alan Lawson and wife Linda from the Bill McLaren Foundation.

The accreditation process has been led over the past eight months by the junior section.

Coach David Peace said: “The ethos of Positive Coaching Scotland fits so well with what we aim to teach our players that we could immediately see the value of being recognised for following this path.”
