Client news round up
It's been another exiting few weeks for Sport Careers Agency Clients, here's the latest review of some recent career moves.
Former Ross County and Kilmarnock defender Scott Boyd has taken up a post with Raith Rovers.
The 34-year-old, who also played for Livingston and Partick, is the club's new Stadium Development Manager.
He said he was "delighted" to take up the newly-created role, adding it is "an exciting project that can have a positive impact on the football club, both on and off the field".
He said: "My main priorities are to maximise the use of Stark's Parks to generate income and develop a strategy for the redevelopment of various areas, including creating a Community Hub in the McDermid Stand as we look for Raith Rovers FC to become the heartbeat of our local community".
Peter Ramage has returned to Newcastle United to take up the role of Under 23 Assistant Coach.
Ramage, who came through the club's Academy system before making 69 first team appearances between 2004 and 2008, leaves his role as assistant coach at Phoenix Rising in the United States and returns to Tyneside ahead of the 2020/21 season.
Born in Whitley Bay, Ramage clocked up 336 senior outings during his playing career. After leaving Newcastle United in summer 2008, he went on to represent Queens Park Rangers, Crystal Palace, Birmingham City, Barnsley, Coventry City and Leyton Orient, as well as enjoying spells overseas with Kerala Blasters in India and Arizona United and Phoenix Rising in the United States.
After arriving back in his native North East, Ramage will work alongside lead development coach Chris Hogg. The 36-year-old replaces Liam Bramley, who has stepped down from his role.
Ramage said: "I'm really excited and grateful to be given the opportunity by the football club to come home and work at the Academy with the Under-23s".
"I'm looking forward to working and learning from some incredible coaches and working with a talented group of players".
"My goal is to help give them the foundations to move into the first team and hopefully live the dream that I did in walking out at St. James' Park in front of 52,000 Geordies".
Mark Wotte has taken up a new role as Head Coach of Al Wahda FC in the UAE Pro League.
