About the club

University of Stirling Football Club is based in Stirling, Scotland. This website is dedicated to the men’s first team, who play in eight competitions, including the semi-professional Lowland League – the fifth tier of Scottish football.

As the name suggests, the club is associated with the University of Stirling – The Times / Sunday Times UK Sports University of the Year 2020 and Scotland’s University for Sporting Excellence. It delivers a high performance football programme, offering students scholarships to allow them to study a degree while playing for the University.

With player development central to the ethos of the programme, three members of the 2018/19 team have stepped up to senior level – with current student Blair Lyons joining Montrose and former students Lewis Hunter and Rory MacEwan signing for East Fife and Elgin, respectively.

The first team – which also includes a small number of non-students – are managed by the club’s long-serving striker Chris Geddes. Geddes replaced Shelley Kerr MBE, the current manager of Scotland women’s team, in 2017. Geddes is supported by assistant coach Mark Adams.

The club captain is Craig Brown, while James Berry is vice-captain.
