Lecturer in Football and Talent Development

I have 20 years’ coaching experience and has been an academy coach since 2009 working at Bury, Huddersfield Town, Blackburn Rovers. I have worked throughout the age groups within this time but specialising in the youth development phase since 2015.

I am a UEFA A License qualified coach and also have the Advanced Youth Award focussing on the Youth Development phase.

I have been a Coach Educator for The FA since 2016 developing coaches on their level 1, level 2 and UEFA B licence qualifications.
