"I am very happy to be joining the coaching staff at Oklahoma Celtic." says James Ritchie.  "The club vision for the future is impressive.  I look forward to working with my teams and the ECNL goalkeepers. I plan to build a program that can produce some of the top young keepers in the state. Oklahoma Celtic being awarded the ECNL in both the boys and girls divisions is massive for soccer in Oklahoma. The club now has a clear pathway for progression. I believe the club will grow from strength to strength. The fact that Oklahoma Celtic is affiliated to Glasgow Celtic is also a bonus. Growing up in Glasgow I know just how massive a club Celtic is and I look forward to building on that affiliation. It is an honor to be given such a key role within the club and I am very much looking forward to getting started."


"We are thrilled about coach Ritchie joining our staff.  He brings great knowledge and experience to our staff and will take our goalkeeper training program to great levels.  His values align with that of our club and I believe he will have a huge impact on the lives of our players." says Don Rother Oklahoma Celtic Executive Director.
