Quality soccer training to all ages and abilities in the soccer world, more specifically;

Born in Newcastle, England in 1982, I began playing soccer the moment I could walk. I have been involved with coaching and training children of all ages since 1996. I played at a very high level through my dedication and desire to succeed in football, or as I now know it soccer. I was recognized initially by my country in 1998 when I played for England Boys Clubs in a 4 nation's tournament in Wales. From that success I went on to play for my county in 1999, winning the most highly regarded prize in youth soccer - the Football Association County Youth Championship. In 2000 I was again honored to play for my country, this time for England School Boys under 18's. It was with great excitement that my final game with the Under 18's was held at Wembley in front of 33,000 people. In 2001 I continued my soccer education by coming to America on a soccer scholarship to a Division One soccer program. I graduated in 2005 from Saint Francis University, PA with a Bachelors Degree in Psychology. During my senior year I acted as captain and helped lead our team to the playoffs for the first time in school history, this was accomplished with a 10 win season - another first in Saint Francis history.

My goal as a trainer/coach is to offer my players the best opportunity to better themselves and develop with the help of my guidance and knowledge. I work with players of all abilities and fully understand the need for good technique training before tactical training. I like a team that passes the ball efficiently and accurately before breaking the opposition with affective wide play and killer passes. My teams have been renowned for their positive attitude and work rate while the quality of soccer is produced. I am very passionate and come to every training session with energy and great preparation. I love the game and I want my teams to play and act the same way.
