It’s Been Emotional…

For the last 3 seasons I have combined my coaching from working with scholarship players, kindergarten, elite female to grassroots.

Now grassroots has been ‘interesting’…

I have witnessed fights between parents, players refusing to play positions, clubs bending over backwards from the slightest bit of attention from professional clubs – regardless of the behaviour or performance of their coaches, and several players with little or no interest in football. More recently, I was accused of being a ‘demanding coach’. “What demands have I made?” Here was the answer…

“Wanting jackets for your assistants and 2 training sessions a week”

This remark / criticism was made by the mens’ 1st team manager, newly appointed ‘Head of Youth Football’, he went on to say, “I can see we’re not pulling in the same direction”..

True story.
