Carl Tremarco rises at Ross County and Paddy Byrne joins Chesterfield

Carl Tremarco continues to rise at Ross County


Scottish Premiership side Ross County has appointed Carl Tremarco as Head of Professional Academy and Loans Manager.

Tremarco, a former left-back, played for the likes of Tranmere Rovers, Macclesfield Town, and Inverness Caledonian Thistle during his 18-year professional career. While at Caley Thistle, the Football Careers client started completing his coaching badges and began training the club’s U16 and U20 teams. In 2020, he signed his final contract as a player with Ross County, where he has held a number of roles since hanging up his boots in 2021.

After Stuart Taylor — then the club’s first-team coach — departed for Hamilton Accies in August 2021, Tremarco stepped in to take up the role on an interim basis. Alongside his work with the first team, the UEFA A Licence holder led a key part of County’s Academy in his previous position as Head of Youth, helping several players from the U16 squad break into the professional ranks.

In his new role, Tremarco will oversee the development of talented footballers within the club’s Academy, and will play a critical role in managing loaned players as he continues his coaching work with the first team.

Speaking of Tremarco’s appointment and the importance of the newly-created Loans Manager role, Ross County manager Malky Mackay said:

“It’s an extra little marker down as to how we can improve these young guys, to give them the best chance to either play here, or play professional football somewhere else.

“It’s our duty to do that — because if you invest in these players and ask them to become part of your academy, with all the criteria attached to it and all the things they can’t do because you’ve taken them through their journey, it’s our obligation to do the next bit, and there’s nothing better than seeing players that we know playing professional football.

“They might not be with me here, it could be somewhere else. If I see the player getting a big move, or playing for Scotland, it’s the best thing ever.”

Paddy Byrne brings his expertise to Chesterfield


Paddy Byrne has been named First Team Coach of National League club Chesterfield. The new appointment will see Byrne continue in his current role as International Academy Technical Manager and Academy Coach at Everton.

During his time at Everton, which began in 2016 when he took up the position of Primary School Football Coach, the UEFA A Licence holder has worked in various areas of the club’s Academy.

Prior to his appointment as International Academy Technical Manager in early 2023, Byrne held the role of International Academy Technical Lead at Everton. He currently coaches within the Academy’s Youth Development Phase. Before beginning that role in 2021, he spent more than five years assisting in the development of players as a Foundation Phase Coach.

Byrne has worked with a number of other clubs across the UK, including Rangers and Wigan Athletic. At the national level, he has coached within the Irish Football Association’s elite player development programme.

The Football Careers client was previously Head First Team Coach at Northern Premier League side Macclesfield and has additional first-team experience with Irish League Premiership outfit Larne.

Chesterfield currently sit first in the National League, five points clear of closest rivals Solihull Moors. They will face Maidenhead United in an away fixture on Saturday 30th September.
