Having played soccer around Scotland from a young age, Gary was involved with the National team youth set up and Regional Squad and at the age of 18 decided to pursue further education and completed a Higher National Diploma in Sports Science and Sports Coaching with Development. After graduating, he became involved in soccer coaching with his fellow colleagues in the local community and from there the journey began.
Gary has been an integral part of the growth and development of AM Sports Tours since its inception. Networking extensively in London and Eastern Europe in the early stages, ensures that his capacity to deliver is high quality and unique to each of his customers.
Gary manages and delivers tours predominantly to the UK and Eastern Europe. His knowledge of soccer here is substantial and that allows for great detail to be shared with new and existing customers. Some of his most notable work includes directing our programmes at the European Championships in Poland and Ukraine in 2012 with over 200 clients and project managing work with the European Commission enabling students in vocational education once in a lifetime opportunities to travel abroad to increase and develop their skill sets. During the past 5 years, over 350 students have had this unique opportunity through AM Sports Tours.
Whilst the combination of soccer and travel motivate Gary greatly, his desire to continue to play soccer remains important to him. Playing Semi-pro in Scotland over the last 8 years Gary has won over 25 trophies and in 2011 was named as Player of the Year for the Fife Region. He was also presented as Player of the Year for season 2013 - 2014 for his new club AMsoccer.
