Chairman

Our Chairman is Willie Pettigrew.DSC_0294

Hi, I am Willie Pettigrew and I am the current Chair of the SPFA. I got involved in Powerchair football when my son, Thomas started playing at Craigholme in Glasgow. When Thomas moved to Cumbernauld to train with Clyde Alba I started to get a bit more involved, firstly as a parent rep then with a little bit of coaching on match days. I still help out with coaching, sort of, just not very well.

I attended an SPFA committee meeting as a rep for Clyde and ended up as Secretary, a role I carried out until February when I took over as Chair.

My main aim is to continue the development of the sport, both domestically and internationally. I would like to see more players, more teams and for the National side to start playing competitive football.

I am 55 years old, married to Catherine with three kids, Simon, Lauryn and Thomas. I live in East Kilbride where I was born. I love football, of all kinds, I support Celtic and also follow East Kilbride FC in the Lowland League. I work as a Civil Servant in East Kilbride.
