We are delighted to welcome Spirit of Liverpool into our programme, which will see the club access player and coach development opportunities such as our online coaching curriculum, monthly coach education WebEx’s and the Elite Player Programme, which will be held in New England early next year.

Bernie Grimes, president and Director of Coaching for Spirit of Liverpool, said: “We look forward to what this international partnership with Celtic FC has to offer as we strive to be the best we can be, on the field as well as off the field. Our coaching staff and our players are all excited and ready to learn the Celtic way.”

Alex Macpherson, Celtic FC Partnership Executive, added: "Spirit of Liverpool are a fantastic addition to our programme as they have a very similar ethos to Celtic FC in terms of player development and the work they do in their local community. They will be a fantastic partner for the Celtic Soccer Academy and we are looking forward to a long future with them."
