DOB 15/01/1976

I am hardworking and adaptable individual with immense desire to succeed in everything I do along with great enthusiasm and passion for coaching both young and older players to help them improve their footballing abilities and their game knowledge. I have gained and developed this throughout my 17 year professional career having played in the Premier League in Scotland and England. Spending most of my career in the toughest league in football the English Championship. I have been a league winner with both Portsmouth, and whilst on loan at Norwich in the old English 1st Division getting promoted to the English Premiership both times. I also won the old League 2 whilst on load at Walsall. I have worked with some of the top managers in the UK, the likes of Harry Rednapp, Tony Pulis, Jim Smith, Steve McLaren and Alex Miller. All I can call upon for advice at any time. I am a UEFA “B”licence holder and I am in the process of gaining my UEFA “A” licence in July this year
