Kevin Moran appointed Coaching & Competitions Manager

Scottish Squash are pleased to confirm that Kevin Moran has taken up a new role within the organisation as Coaching & Competitions Manager.

Kevin enjoyed a successful 10-year career as a professional squash player, competing in two Commonwealth Games and winning a bronze medal with Scotland at the 2016 European Team Championships.

He retired in 2018 but has continued to fuel his passion for the sport at Scottish Squash, working as a Senior Performance Coach as well as a Regional Development Officer to help increase squash opportunities in clubs.

Kevin’s new position will see him driving the Governing Bodies coach education and competition structure pathways.

Scottish Squash Chief Operating Officer, Garry McKay, said: “In light of the changing landscape created by the pandemic, we’ve taken this opportunity to review our internal executive staffing structure.

“Part of this review has coincided with the recent departure of David Fallon to Scottish Athletics and we’re really pleased to confirm that Kevin Moran has been appointed into a new role as Coaching & Competitions Manager.”

Kevin said: “I’m delighted to take up this new opportunity. Having spent a large portion of my life playing various events across the world and being involved in coaching at every level of our pathways, it definitely seems like a natural evolution of my time here at Scottish Squash.

“From operations to development and performance, we have a great team working towards a collective vision and I’m looking forward to the challenge of continuing to grow our sport in a slightly different context.”

Garry McKay continued: “In addition to Kevin’s appointment, we have realigned some of the responsibilities of the Head of Development and Head of Coaching & Competitions posts, repositioning them within a Director of Development role, filled by Allan McKay.

“Furthermore we’re also pleased to confirm that Cara Shearer’s Club Development Manager role has been increased to a full-time position.

“She will continue to support clubs and key partners to help increase opportunities for women and girls to thrive in whatever capacity they wish throughout squash in Scotland.

“Another further change will also see Kylie Lindsay transition from her current dual role across performance (Senior Performance Coach) and development (Club Development Officer) to become a full-time Senior Performance Coach.”
