Ross County Football Club is delighted to announce that former player, Scott Boyd, has been appointed as the club’s Sporting Director. Boyd, who made over 300 appearances for the Staggies during a nine year spell in Dingwall, has retired from playing. Most recently he enjoyed a successful three seasons in the Ladbrokes Premiership with Kilmarnock Football Club which followed his departure from Ross County in August 2016.
Speaking about Boyd’s appointment, Chairman, Roy MacGregor, said:
“We are delighted to bring Scott back to the club in the newly created Sporting Director role. Many will know that Scott started studying towards a Sports Management degree with worldwide players’ union, FIFPRO, during his time with the club. Since graduating, Scott has combined his playing career with spending two days a week at Rugby Park gaining a valuable insight into the running of the club.
“Scott’s role will have a heavy focus on business and community engagement. He will be tasked with developing and building the RCFC brand, particularly across the Highlands & Islands and work with our Community, Youth, Academy and First teams, enhancing the commercial opportunities for each entity.
“Scott will also be responsible for bridging the gap between the football and commercial functions of the club, focusing on building relationships with sponsors, businesses and supporters alike.”
Boyd commences his role at the club with immediate effect.
