What I do
I manage the post 16–18 Football & Education Programme based at Westfield Academy. This exciting programme gives talented male players between the ages of 16–18 years old the chance to combine academic studies with practical football experience, designed to bridge the gap between grassroots and academy football. The academy offers many pathways for students, including university options, USA scholarships, apprenticeships, coaching opportunities, employment, and other avenues into football.
I want to make a positive difference because…
I take great pride in seeing these boys turn into young men and for the staff to help them create a pathway for them in the future.
My Trust value
Our ethos at the Academy is based around two key words which is ‘Respect & Responsibility’. We expect staff and players to respect each others views and the environments that we are in and to take responsibilities for our actions.
