Rookie bosses Colin Spence and James Latta are set to swap the touchline for online in a bid to help Irvine Meadow win a SFA club licence.
The Medda co-managers need to crash a series of virtual coaching courses by the end of next month to meet criteria and deadlines laid down by the governing body.
Meadow hope to be the first club in North Ayrshire to gain a club licence but they must meet a series of yardsticks on and off the park.
Spence admits that playing his part by getting his head down for some serious study time comes as something of a culture shock.
And while he acknowledges that he and Latta face a race against time to complete their Entry level assessments he insists they will take time off their day jobs if need be.
“This is all new to me,” said Spence.
“When I was a young player at Gretna, they sent us to day release at a college in Dumfries and Galloway and that was probably the last time I had to sit down and look at a computer.
“I’ve even had to borrow the good lady’s laptop to get started!
“When James and I took the job last year, Meadow were still a Junior side and there was no requirement for coaching qualifications.
“This is all part and parcel of wanting to be a proper professional club and to be honest it can only be a good thing.
“The courses are all online and the more you do the longer they take. The final one we have to do is a day and a half to complete.
“It’s going to very tight to get them done before the deadline but it will be worth it if it means the club gets a licence.”
Former players Spence and Latta made the transition from the pitch to the dugout last February.
They’ve have made a fine start to their managerial careers with Meadow currently fourth in the West of Scotland League Premiership.
The duo have cited their old Auchinleck Talbot boss Tommy Sloan as their managerial inspiration.
And Spence noted: “I don’t think Tucker has a coaching qualification to his name but look at the success he’s had.
“It just goes to show you there is no right or wrong way in football.”
“There are just some things you can’t teach.”
Meadow general manager Brian Lamb this week provided an update on what work is still required to get Meadow Park up to scratch following an SFA audit.
But he admits the pressure is on the club’s committee to ensure other facilities are brought up to the required standard ahead of a February 24 deadline.
The good news is work is already underway in virtually every aspect of the audit.
North Ayrshire Council have been tasked with carrying out a capacity assessment while the club are looking for an external agency to carry out a disabled access review.
A revamped home dressing room and new medical building have been given the green light, pending remaining works which include installing showers and sinks.
On potential stumbling block is toilet access for match officials but the club are exploring three possible options.
First aid trainers are also required to help Meadow meet their matchday medical obligations.
Two volunteers are required, one to look after the players and the other for members of the public. Anyone interested is urged to contact the Meadow committee.
The club have also put together diversity and inclusion policy which they are confident will satisfy beaks.
Lamb said: “The pressure is on the committee to try and deliver these bits and pieces. It’s just getting time and energy to get them done.”
