About this pro

Growing up in Liverpool, England, it is hard not to be passionate, even a bit obsessed about soccer (or football as we call it). I moved to the U.S.A. in 1983 to take my Master’s and become a graduate assistant coaching soccer at West Chester University in Pennsylvania. After graduation, I was fortunate enough to become an assistant coach at Dartmouth College and head coach at Tufts University. Now, all these years later, I look back on a long and varied soccer career in this country:  

  • 34 years of Soccer Camps 
  • 31 years as a Club Soccer Coach 
  • 27 years of College Coaching
  • 22 years on the Olympic Development Program staff
  • 6 years Founder and Director of Boston Soccer Academy

I am grateful for the longevity of my career and I am committed to helping the future education and development of soccer in the United States of America.

Quite simply I love working with kids! I eat, sleep and drink the beautiful game!!  

Yours in Soccer!

The players I have worked with have been all abilities that you can imagine - from raw, inexperienced beginners to players who turned professional and represented their country. I have worked from 5 year olds through adults, both genders.
