Short BIOGRAPHY

about coach

First started coaching American football when I was 21, it was the first place I ever coached. I’ll always have a bit of my heart there! I developed a philosophy of hard work wins and I’ve taken that into life! I coached American football teams for several years and was fortunate enough to experience great success and met some incredible people who had a great effect on my life. Watching boys turn into men and I’ll always use those skills I learnt with video analysis, player psychology and player approach in the football world

Then I went to UCFB where I met a lot of lads from paddock and I coached with Nairobi for the UCFB women’s team during our undefeated season. We became huge fans of each other’s coaching methods because we complimented each other, the good cop and bad cop.<br /> Then I had a great coaching role at Wigan Athletic as a coach where I learnt a lot from diverse experiences and pushed forwards in my career to then get a role at Accrington Stanley (who are they) where I experienced coaching youth and I’m still there but here I am now ready to take on my next challenge and I really feel like I have my mojo in a men’s team so I’m ready to get stuck in!

I first grew up in west derby, first house was opposite Liverpool’s training ground, Melwood! an I’ve been footy obsessed ever since! Bit strange for me coming here, growing up as a kid united won EVERYTHING an ruined many seasons for me! I had to watch the Fergie era which was incredible but I can only show respect to that! but I’m glad the tables are turning now! I hope that coming here can give me a really different experience, although nobody likes to admit it scousers and mancs are very similar. Both from hard working blue collar cities that are known in world football for being dominant, enriched in music and art culture and diversity and although I get stick for being scouse I get shown a lot of love and respect too. I love living in Manchester, it’s a great night out an the manc girls don’t mind a scouse lad<br /> Then I had a great coaching role at Wigan Athletic as a coach where I learnt a lot from diverse experiences and pushed forwards in my career to then get a role at Accrington Stanley (who are they) where I experienced coaching youth and I’m still there but here I am now ready to take on my next challenge and I really feel like I have my mojo in a men’s team so I’m ready to get stuck in!

I’m very much what you see is what you get an I pride myself in working my arse off and being passionate about coaching! I have the unfortunate experience of living with Karthik and Iauaen (Yazza) I’m looking forwards to arguing with them about training!
