Career Summary:

My passion for football (soccer) started as a child growing up in England, My first experience playing was for a local team at the age of 5 up to the age of 13, where I was then scouted to play for my local district side. From there I worked my way up to Staffordshire County’s team (state). As a player for the county I was invited to join English Premier League team Stoke City FC who I represented for 3 years at a youth level. During my time playing I managed a lot of success, including playing in the National schools final for Codsall High School where we were fortunate enough to play at Highbury (Arsenal) stadium. After my time at Stoke I decided to pursue a career in coaching. I went on to Bilston College in Wolverhampton where I received my FA levels. I currently hold FA level 2 certificate in coaching.

I have been coaching now for several years, I have helped coach my former high school team as well as other local teams in the Wolverhampton area. I have represented challenger sports both as summer coach and Club coach trainer for 3 years. I have been fortunate to coach in towns all over the New England area. I believe that over the years I have gained lots of knowledge from both playing and coaching at a professional level and in professional environments, my aim is to impart that knowledge to players and teams at Strikers United as I aim to make players better individually as well as fostering good team coherence.
