Hull Area Owner – Kirk Blake
Hi I am Kirk, a 37 years old coach who will be running the brand new hull area, I loved football from the first time I kicked a ball. As a young lad I played local Sunday league till I was scouted by Grimsby town fc, where I played from the age of 14 till the age of 18, playing youth and reserve football. I’ve also played semi professional and in the local league.
I ‘ve been involved in coaching kids football on and off from the age of 17. I am a level 1 coach and have youth modules 1,2 And 3 and hold a up to date child safeguarding qualification. I am a coach who loves getting children running around loving the game we all love and if my coaching puts a smile on the children’s faces then I’m winning.
I like to think all my years in and around the sport can help children develop not only as footballers but help them develop in areas which will be useful in everyday life such as gaining confidence, working in team and making decisions.
As a coach I like my personality to come through and it shows the type of person I am. It’s really pleasing to see children develop in all aspects of the game and hopefully in time I could help them take the steps needed for youth league football.
I’m an outgoing and friendly person who is chatty,energetic and fun. I adapt to all ages and personalities. My confidence in the game of football allows me to provide essential skills for girls and boys to enjoy themselves whilst learning and playing the sport.
Im looking forward to this new venture in the game of football and look forward to brining lots of smiles to all the children who join us for the journey over the next few months and years.
