COACH

What attracted you to coaching at AM Soccer Club?

What do you feel is the most important aspect of your role as a Coach?

What is your favourite AM Soccer Curriculum skill and why?

Can you recall your favourite football moment from your life, so far?

If you could sit with any person, past or present for dinner and a conversation, who would that person be?

  • The person I would want to sit with would have to be Cristiano Ronaldo as I would like to meet him and he inspired me the most when I was younger watching Champions League games with what he could do with the ball.

  • I’ve been involved with AM Soccer Club since the age of 6, I had some time away at Dundee United and Dundee FC but when I came back I wanted to do more than just be a player. I thought coaching would help to develop a number of other skills that I knew I would need in life

  • Every session I coach my main focus is to have fun and I know this makes any learning much more enjoyable for both the group and myself. It’s also important that the children learn to respect each other and also the rest of the community. I think through football at AM Soccer Club it is important to coach this.

  • My favourite skill of the AM Soccer Curriculum is the Maradona Scoop as it is the skill I use the most when playing football. However my favourite skill to coach is the Zidane 360 as it is the most challenging in my opinion and is rewarding when you see people master it.

  • My favourite football moment so far would have to be winning the Fife schools league and cup double in the 2018/19 season with Bell Baxter, finishing the whole season unbeaten.
