PERSONAL PROFILE

I am an experienced professional football manager, highly qualified coach and have worked across various levels of the game from grassroots and youth level to the Football League and Premier League, managing in all four domestic divisions, and  more recently, in continental Europe.

I have a reliable track record of helping to build successful teams, revitalising clubs who have previously struggled, whilst helping to reduce overall squad salary and promoting and recruiting young, talented footballers.
