‘My aim is to achieve a reputation as the foremost skills school and football coaching centre in the region, which will attract players of the highest quality.  This will not affect or influence your commitment in any way, whether you play for a local team, attend an Academy, School of excellence or Boys Club. Players from Newcastle united, Sunderland,  Middlesborough Academy and Development centres are attending at present.’

‘I am aware of the importance of advanced coaching for players of all abilities in order for them to progress as far as possible within the game.  My aim is to  develop  skilful, two footed, confident and creative footballers.’

“Feet4Football’s coaching philosophy is that

you can’t play the game until you master the ball.”

‘An intense, fun packed hour of skills training, where the coach can not only talk the talk, but also walk the walk.  You won’t find better!’

David - George’s Dad (Newcastle United Academy)

‘Ball mastery is a key element in the development of our young footballers.  In David’s sessions they have the opportunity to have lots of touches of the ball and develop their skills in a relaxed and fun environment.  The sessions combine learning and also he challenges them to the right degree and at the end of the session they all go home with a smile on their face.’
