Player[edit]

Chapman played as a forward for Albion Rovers and Dumbarton.[3] A knee injury ended his career aged 25.[3]

Manager[edit]

Kilmarnock Ladies[edit]

Chapman began his managerial career with a successful stint at Kilmarnock Ladies between 2001 and 2004. He won two Scottish Women's Premier League championships, 1 Scottish Women's Cup, 2 Scottish Women's Premier League Cup and 1 Scottish Women's Football League First Division Cup.

Albion Rovers[edit]

Chapman moved into men's football with Albion Rovers, but he was sacked in May 2007 after a dispute with the board.[4]

Dumbarton[edit]

Chapman was then appointed Dumbarton manager in December 2007.[5] He led the Sons to the Scottish Third Division championship and promotion the following season. Chapman resigned as Dumbarton manager in October 2010, with the team struggling in the Second Division and took a football development role with the club.[6]

Annan Athletic[edit]

He was appointed manager of Third Division club Annan Athletic in January 2013.[7][8] Chapman won his first game on his eighth attempt with a shock 2–1 win over Rangers at Ibrox on Saturday 9 March 2013. Almost three years later in January 2016, he led the club to a Scottish Cup shock win over Scottish Premiership side Hamilton Academical with an emphatic 4–1 home win.[9]

Clyde[edit]

On 20 May 2017, after over four years with Annan Athletic, Chapman left the club to manager fellow Scottish League Two side Clyde.[10] Chapman left Clyde on 31 October 2017, with the club saying that "league results, performances and overall standards" had fallen short of their expectations. His last game in charge of Clyde was a 4-2 defeat to Elgin City what ended up with a brawl between Chapman, assistant manager John Joyce and Clyde supporters at broadwood.[11]
