Former Scotland and Kilmarnock player Angie Hind is joining the Scottish FA as the new Scotland women assistant national coach.
Angie returns to Scotland to work alongside national coach Anna Signeul following six years in the USA as head coach of the womens soccer team at Ivy League school Dartmouth College.
She previously spent five years as a football development officer at Glasgow City Council, was the head coach of the largest girl's regional squad in Scotland, and coached the Under-16 national side.
As a player, Hind spent seventeen years at Kilmarnock Ladies FC, captaining the side to five league and cup titles.
As well as working with the national team, her new position involves supporting the development of elite female players in Scotland.
Angie said: "This is an amazing opportunity for me during an exciting time in women's football in Scotland.
"I've been watching the progress of the women's game back home over the last few years and it has been phenomenal. The national team is on the cusp of qualifying for a major championship and I feel this is a great time to be involved.
"I thank Dartmouth University for the opportunities they've afforded me over the last six years, but it was a real honour to be offered this new role.
"The development aspect of the job mixed with national team involvement is a perfect match for me. I am very passionate about developing the game and I want to make a difference."
Anna Signeul said of the new appointment: "I am delighted to welcome Angie as my new assistant coach. She brings a wealth of knowledge and her experience, gained in both Scotland and the USA, will be invaluable.
"The national team has built up real momentum in recent years, and that is fed by the hard work going into club and player development all around the country.
"I look forward to continuing to strengthen our position in European and World football with Angie as part of my team."
Angie takes up her role in the New Year, replacing Ann-Helen Grahm who leaves her post at the end of 2010 to join the Swedish FA.
