Former Watford F.C. manager visits Berkhamsted School
Every Monday afternoon our senior school pupils attend
various clubs and societies which are designed to expand their interests.
This week the ‘606 Soccer Punditry Club’ welcomed Malky
Mackay, a parent at Berkhamsted School for a question and answer session.
During his playing career, Malky won three consecutive
promotions to the Premier League between 2004 and 2006 with Norwich, West Ham
and Watford. Before the move to England, Malky played for Queen’s Park and
He won five caps for Scotland as a defender and told 606
Club the two opponents he most respected as a player were the strikers Jurgen
Klinsmann and Raúl.
After retiring as a player in 2008, he became manager of
Watford in June 2009. He then took charge of Cardiff City between June 2011 and
December 2013, achieving promotion to the Premier League in 2013. Malky managed
Wigan Athletic from November 2014 to April 2015 and is currently Performance Director
for the Scottish Football Association.
We were most grateful for Malky for giving up his time to
visit the School before heading into London for the League Manager’s Association
annual dinner at the Savoy Hotel.
