CG Elite was formed in the Scottish borders in 2013 and we predominantly work within the Peeblesshire area.
Over the years CG Elite has tried incredibly hard to offer its community a sporting opportunity for kids of all ages and stages. We provide a fun and safe environment for children as young as 3 to come along and be introduced to football for what may be the very first time, to our more seasoned campaigners looking to develop within the game.
We have expanded our programme meaning we now offer more than we ever have. It’s crazy to think that after almost 9 years we are still operating in the heart of the community for our children and youths with the same enthusiasm, passion and drive as we started out with.
Hailing from the illustrious Hibernian F.C academy, As a youth, Ger also spent some time on the other side of the city with Heart Of Midlothian and Hutchinson Vale. Spending the best part of ten years however on the green and white side of the capital, Ger finally signed professionally with the club at the age of 16. By the time he turned 19, a dramatic change in surroundings saw Ger take the plunge in playing abroad. After a trial period in Los Angeles, Ger settled for an offer in Eastern Europe where he would then go on to spend the next 5 years. On his return home, due to injury, he decided to take up an opportunity to coach within the SFA. Finding a new lease of life, Ger has been coaching ever since. In 2013 “CG Elite” was then born.
Starting out at “Peebles Thistle” as a kid, Ger now hopes to pass on as much knowledge as he can to the local talent within Peebles and its surrounding areas.
