About us

Our greatest asset is our coaches. Without their dedication and professional approach, as well as their love for football and willingness to learn, our work would not be possible. Meet the team…

Bio: Football has been an integral part of my life for over 50 years. Having played into my late 30s, and coached as a volunteer for almost two decades, I made a career change to full-time coaching in my mid-forties and eventually formed Go4Goal. My specialist areas include position-specific, futsal and elite-level coaching. Our recent partnership with smartfootball in Spain has taken our coaching to a new level, with a specific focus on developing intelligent footballers. I am a committee member of the Surrey Football Coaches Association and I gain great pleasure from mentoring and developing our passionate young coaches.

Proudest football moment: Being one of three coaches shortlisted for Coach of the Year at the London Sport Awards 2015!

Favourite Team: Liverpool

Favourite Player: Robbie Fowler

Football lookalike: Steven Fletcher

Qualifications: FA Level 2, FA Futsal Level 2, Federation of Catalunya smartfootball Level 2

Bio: I played youth level football to county standard and enjoyed a lengthy senior football career in both the North West and South East before taking up Futsal in 2006. I played national league futsal, enjoying FA Futsal Cup success, and even had a spell with the England national team. I have 16 years coaching experience, both voluntary and professionally, and my specialist area is futsal, which I believe is the best development tool the game currently has to offer. Go4Goal is a forward-thinking coaching organisation, with a genuine passion for futsal, which makes it the perfect working environment for me as a coach.

Interesting fact: I scored on my debut for every team I have played for.

Signature skill: Megs

Proudest football moment: Being called-up to the England national futsal squad.

Qualifications: UEFA B/ GK Level 1/ Youth Mod and Futsal Level 1, smartfootball level 1

Bio: Having played throughout my youth and at a semi-professional level, I began coaching while completing my Football Coaching and Performance degree at the University of South Wales. My specialist areas are goalkeepers, unit-specific and one-to-one with players ages 8-16 and early-phase player development for 3-6 year olds. I’m always striving to learn and improve, and Go4Goal allows me to do just that.

Interesting fact: Aged 8, I was the Spurs mascot against Man Utd at Old Trafford. Too bad we lost 2-0…

Signature skill: Taking (and saving!) penalties

Proudest football moment: Trialling for QPR aged 16.

Favourite Futsal Team: FC Barcelona Futsal

Favourite Futsal Player: Ferrao (Pivot – FC Barcelona)

Futsal Lookalike: I’m still looking!

Qualifications: UEFA Futsal B.

Bio: In 2005, through a quirk of fate (they had no one else to do it), I helped to run a FA Futsal Cup regional qualifying league. One evening, a coach no-showed and after helping out became hooked on futsal. I have been fortunate to coach Vaughans Futsal Club to The FA Futsal Cup Final in 2007, losing 6-4. Also, coached at FA Futsal National League level with Vaughans and Brentford FC CST.

Previously, head coach at Brentford FC Futsal Club having been on The EFLT Futsal working group committee and an All-Star Coach for the South East region.

I also fulfil a role within The FA as a Futsal Tutor and Mentor, as well as a Regional Talent Centre coach for the England Under 19 futsal programme.

Interesting fact: I used to present a 4-hour live football radio show and did 52 games in one season. That’s a lot of talking.

Signature skill: Working hard. That is a skill.

Proudest futsal moments: Getting to a FA Futsal Cup Final, achieving my UEFA Futsal B qualification and being involved in the England U19 futsal programme. With more to come with Go4Goal!
