I was lucky to be appointed as Head of the Age Group for U8’s season 2019/20 and have had a great time and looking forward to continuing at U9’s Head of Age Group.

I am a senior member of the senior management team and also been a coach at Moss Bank JFC for the last 3 years.

We have an excellent set of coaches at U9’s in all the 3 teams and also great parents from the Greens, Blues and Whites. More than anything we have a great bunch of kids who play in all the 3 teams. I have seen all players progress and this is down to the dedication of the coaching staff. As always we have movement of players at the end of the season alongside appraisals which is something I want to embed in our age group. That way the child and parent know the areas of strength and weakness to work on and improve their all round game and to make them better players and to enjoy playing football.

We have a wide range of abilities at U9’s and everyone enjoying their football on a Saturday morning great to see.

I am really looking forward to this season to watch the teams develop and also the coaches development with 2 new coaches joining the ranks. My role is to support our coaches across the age group and to sort out any issues that occasionally arise. First, discuss any issues with your coach/manager and then if not resolved I am happy to further discuss with the coaches and yourselves to resolve the matter. It is also important to pass on all the positives your coaches do for you team as these are important also. My contact details are – Thanks.
