I started coaching local Football teams in 2006 after achieving my FA level 1 Coaching badge with West Ham United. Then after a few years coaching I was ready to advance my football knowledge and again through West Ham progressed and Passed my FA Level 2.
During my years of coaching I have had players go off to play for various Academies at different age groups and some that trialed and played in higher leagues than i was coaching at the time. I actually have a player i coached as a youth now in the current Tilbury 1st team.
This is my 10th year at Tilbury FC as a Manager 8 of those as youth secretary. With a total of 18 years experience in coaching at various levels i am a strong believer in player development and enjoyment in the game..
Having been with the club for 4 years 2 of those as assistant manager. This is my 1st year as manager and ive embraced the challenge ahead of me. I will give all the time and commitment my team needs to drive them forward. My team and I are determined to work hard on the road to success. Tilbury is a great club and its an honour to be part of it. Im looking forward to the season ahead.
I started coaching in 2015, after finishing playing myself. I have enjoyed and had the privilege of coaching both my sons at various clubs.
Now I am coaching my youngest sons’ team and have been for the last 3 years.
When the opportunity to move the team over to Tilbury FC became available,
it was great opportunity for the progression of the boys. I am really excited for the new adventure with Tilbury FC and looking to continue my own and the teams footballing journey.
My passion is football and I’ve been coaching at Tilbury for 5 years now and loved every minute of it. There is nothing better than a weekend full of football and seeing my passion passed over to the people I coach.
Tilbury U8 season 2020/2021 was formed last season. I was coaching at Thurrock for 15 years then to A1 sports under Paul Vaughn unfortunately this was wound up due to high costs. I was incredibly lucky that Danny the owner of Tilbury allowed A1 to use there pitches and I got to know Lee and between them sold me the Tilbury FC name. I have been blown away by the clubs forward thinking and I'm so excited to be on the journey.
As for my U8 we only lost 2 games last season in the echo league. I am really lucky having a talented squad
