DAVID BUGLASS has travelled around Europe working in corporate business.

But in January he returned to his roots and joined the board of directors at Berwick Rangers.

Born in the town across the border in England, David has made it his mission to encourage locals to fall back in love with the club that plays in Scotland.

After falling out of the SPFL last year into the Lowland League it’s a tough ask – but David has big plans and a pedigree in self-starting and seizing on opportunities.

As well as talking about those targets, we’ll hear how Championship Manager helped him go from an average player – his words - to working with Derek McInnes on the backroom staff at St Johnstone. David also tells us about former Tottenham boss André Villas-Boas' fascination with the game during his Pro-Licence coaching course in Largs.

We’ll speak to him about how he manages to double up his directors’ role at Shielfield by heading up the football operations department at Glasgow City and the work he's done with their manager Scott Booth..

Plus we'll find out why he would back moves to appoint female coaches in the men's game.
