As well as working as our academy coach, Michael currently works for Reading FC as Youth Development Coach for the under 15’s.
He has worked at Reading FC for approx 18 years coaching children from 7 years old right up to the reserve team. His qualifications include the UEFA A license which is one of the highest badges to be held by any football coach.
I live & breathe football on a daily basis, every day is all about learning and bringing out the best of the individual, it’s not all about coaching someone how to play the game its also about discipline & attitude & I like to think I do that in my role as a coach.
If I’m not coaching football I’m watching it to the annoyance of my family! I’m a big Liverpool supporter and love every aspect of the game.
