Why I Coach? I love football and it has been my life since I was 5. I enjoyed playing and thinking about the game as a player, what I/the team can do in certain scenarios to get success. Coaching was the next logical step when I was asked to go on coaching licence, from here I got the appetite to improve. I wanted to get better by watching games and sessions as much as I could to pick up little tips and try them with the players I was coaching while always looking to improve them so they can develop.
