Head of Academy Coaching, Luton Town FC

A UEFA A License and FA Advanced Youth Award Coach, I have held the position of Head of Academy Coaching at Luton Town FC for the past 3 seasons, following 7 previous seasons as The Youth Development Phase Lead Coach. Educated at Loughborough University specialising in Sport Coaching and Pedagogy my current interests include optimising windows of physical trainability, differing pedagogical approaches to elite youth development and the impact of cognitive skills on decision making. At present I am working through the Premier League Elite Head of Coaching programme challenging my thoughts and perspective on all things player and coach development as well as working as a coach mentor on The Premier League Elite Coach Apprenticeship Scheme (ECAS).
