Glasgow City appoint former Dons striker Scott Booth as new manager


SWPL champions Glasgow City have appointed former Aberdeen and Scotland striker Scott Booth as their new manager, succeeding Eddie Wolecki Black – who left earlier this month before taking up a post with EDUSport Academy.

Booth was up until February 2015, manager of Stenhousemuir, but after only 12 wins in 42 games he was sacked by the Ochilview side.

Speaking after being unveiled, Booth said: “Glasgow City is a great young club, women’s football is growing & the sport has been successful in Scotland.

Booth had a high profile playing career, with Aberdeen, FC Twente and Borussia Dortmund and won 22 caps for the Scottish national side.

He was part of the coaching set up under Mark Wotte with Scotland’s youth sides before making the ill fated move to Ochilview.

Booth will face a daunting task in following on from previous manager Eddie Wolecki Black, who led the SWPL side to eight consecutive league titles and reached the Women’s Champions League quarter finals last year.

His first game in charge of Glasgow City will be against Celtic on 26th July.
