York & Selby Area Owner
So I’m an Arsenal fan…. yes, an Arsenal fan…. so life is difficult at times! My love for the greatest game and team (don’t laugh) on earth though is true and I wouldn’t change it for the world!
I’ve been involved in football for as long as I can remember, initially playing for clubs such as Woodthorpe Wanderers, York College and Rufforth. I then at 18 years old decided to get involved with coaching the little ones and I never expected to enjoy it so much, it’s so rewarding. Seeing their faces light up, there’s nothing better. I’ve already met so many brilliant and crazy kids, each with their own unique personalities. As long as the kids go away from a session happy having enjoyed themselves I’m a happy coach! Hopefully they’ll learn new skills along the way also.
I began my coaching career at Hamilton Panthers coaching the U7’s, U8s and U9’s and then took a break for a while due to work commitments but I then got back involved taking charge of the U7’s again. I then started my career with Messys and currently juggle between the two.
Outside of football I love to spend quality time with friends and family and eat pizza, especially pepperoni! It’s so yummy. Arguably my favourite thing in the world outside of football. Spending time with my fiancé Charlotte is also on top of my priority list (otherwise I’d get grief as you can imagine)
Overall I’m a fun and driven coach and aim to make all sessions fun with the scope to learn new skills.
