COACH

What attracted you to coaching at AM Soccer Club?

  • I studied sports coaching with development at university when I left school and always had a passion for coaching. When my son wanted to start playing football, I had free time to spare, so when an opportunity came up to coach at AM Soccer, I couldn’t wait to start.

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

  • Being a positive role model and setting a good example to the kids.

What is your favourite AM Soccer Curriculum skill and why?

  • Zidane 360, it’s great to be able to break down the skill step by step and seeing the kids build it up gradually themselves. The kids love being able to perform this skill in our sessions.

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

  • England v Columbia friendly when René Higuita stopped Jamie Redknapp's cross with his famous Scorpion Kick. 

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

  • Pat Morita (Mr Miyagi)
