  • Date Joined: 17th August 2016
A highly motivated football coach who has established a strong track record in domestic football through his progression to First Team Coach and Head of Academy Coaching at Cardiff City FC as well as the Coach Education Manager for the FAW. Now looking to apply this experience alongside a tenacious work ethic and strong philosophy on the game to a management position with an ambitious club.

Transitioned at a young age from playing to coaching, becoming the youngest person in the world to complete the UEFA A Licence and then the UEFA Pro Licence. Brings this passion for coaching and fresh perspective on the game to all roles, providing a driving presence in the improvement of team performance, player development programmes and overall coaching standards.

Possesses exceptional leadership, communication and organisational skills as well as a willingness to learn and seek advice from others in order to progress. Has pro-actively sought guidance from successful football minds and undertaken independent studies at elite clubs to expand his own knowledge while simultaneously building an extensive network of contacts across all levels of the game.
