COACH

What attracted you to coaching at AM Soccer Club?

  • The opportunity to be more involved in football while having fun and learning. 

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

  • To be consistently positive. By being positive through your communication to players and the energy you give off is something that sticks with them during their highs and lows at sessions.

What is your favourite AM Soccer Curriculum skill and why?

  • Definitely the Zidane 360 turn. It's the most fun to perform and it is the most amusing skill to teach to the young ones!

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

  • A personal moment would be making my debut for East Fife Women's first team at the age of 15. Being on the pitch with all the older and much taller players was an exciting and scary challenge! 

  • A football TV moment would be watching all of the USWNT games during the Women's World Cup in 2019. I don't think I have ever been so passionate about football in my life until that summer. Intense, entertaining and inspiring.

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

  • Rose Lavelle who plays for the US women's national team. One of the most exciting young female players to watch on TV and seems like she would be such a good laugh to be around.
