Bob Arnold, MSC President, is proud to “have a top professional European Club like Celtic FC recognize the strength and potential for our club.” The current MSC Technical Director, George Hageage, looks at the partnerships as a “validation to the process the board has undertaken over the past 10 years and to the vision of the player development that we have implemented over the last four.”
Celtic Soccer Academy Manager Willie McNab added: ‘We are delighted to add Midland Soccer Club to our International Club Partnership Programme and it again emphasises our commitment to building relationships across the globe.
