Scotland national coach Ann Signueul has a new but familiar assitant coach
Scotland's women A squad will be heading to Florida and Tennessee for a couple of games next month with a familiar face added to the coaching staff. Ann-Helen Grahm, who spent almost six years working alongside Scotland national coach Anna Signeul, before returning to her native Sweden in December 2010, has returned to her previous role. Grahm helped guide Sweden to third place at the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup in Germany, and to the quarter finals of the London Olympics last summer. Grahm has returned to the Scotland backroom staff following the departure of Angie Hind, who is now head coach at Scottish Women’s Premier League side, Rangers. Signeul said: "We are delighted to welcome Ann-Helen back to Scotland. She knows the Scottish game very well, and brings a range of invaluable experience on the international stage, with both Scotland and Sweden. On behalf of everyone at the Scottish FA, I would like to thank Angie for her hard work over the past two years, particularly during our run to the play-offs for UEFA Women’s Euro 2013. We wish her well in her new role. We now look forward to an exciting year, beginning with two fixtures against Olympic champions USA in Florida and Tennessee in February, as we begin preparations for the FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifying campaign at the end of the year."
