Ifan Thomas

Academy Coach

  • Date Joined: 6th December 2017
I’m a very hard working, innovative & forward thinking coach. I’m currently in my 3rd & final year studying Sport Science BSc at Bangor University. Along with my studies, I am a part time academy coach at Bangor City FC Academy, where I am now head coach of the U11’s. Before becoming head coach of the U11’s, I was an assistant for the U12’s along with assisting training sessions of other age groups ranging from U8’s to U14’s.

I currently hold the FAW ’C’ certificate, with ambitions of going on the UEFA B licence during the 2018/19 season. I also hold the PFSA Level 1 in talent ID & FA Level 1 & 2 in talent ID, with ambitions to go on the PFSA Level 2 & the IPSO level 1 before the end of the 2017/18 season.

As a coach I like my sessions to be fun and educational. Making sure the young athletes enjoy training, along with aiding their development is key to my session planning. I like my teams to play with the ball on the floor, using triangles while passing and moving. Maximum work and commitment is a minimum for my players.
