SSS are delighted to announce the appointment of our three new Sports Chairs.

Eamonn Laird, current Club Development Officer at the University of Dundee will take charge of all things Scottish Student Basketball. Emma Cartmill, Sports Union Administrator at Heriot-Watt University has been appointed SSS Netball Chair, with Sports Management student, Molly Hyde, taking up the role of SSS Football Chair.

Welcome Eamonn!

Following a move back to Scotland after a stint at the University of Leeds, Eamonn will be taking on the role of Scottish Student Basketball Chair where he will be the one of the key voices in the development of the student game. In the coming months, Eamonn will be working closely with SSS staff and Basketball Scotland to establish a development group to support the growth of the sport across the student network.

Welcome Emma!

Only a year removed from being a student and competing with the SS Netball National Squad in 2019, Emma brings first-hand knowledge to the role of Scottish Student Netball Chair. In this role, Emma will be working closely with SSS staff and Netball Scotland in leading the work of the Netball Development group to support the growth of student Netball. Emma is keen to build strong communication between the clubs and SSS.

Welcome Molly!

After a tremendous start as the Scottish Student Football Women’s National Squad Team Manager, Molly has been appointed as the new Scottish Student Football Chair for the upcoming two seasons. In addition to supporting the women’s national squad, Molly will be chairing the Football Development committee and leading the development of the overall Football programme. When asked about her appointment, Molly stated:

“I’m extremely excited and proud to be selected as the new Chair for Scottish Student Football. I look forward to working with all of the stakeholders to help drive some positive changes. Student sport is instrumental in the student experience as it helps maintains good mental health while studying, an area I am extremely passionate about. It has also been fantastic to see the growth of student women’s football, and hope that I can support it grow further.”
