I started working at Notts County FC early in 1995, coaching the under-10 squad at the Centre of Excellence. I enjoyed it so much that I joined Football in the Community later that year. I initially delivered coaching sessions in schools and during holiday periods. In 1997, the Community Officer moved to be Youth Team Coach, so I became part of the management team and helped to develop Football in the Community into what is the best deliverer of community sports activities in the area. Being Community Director is my ideal job, I take great satisfaction in the work we do in our community. I get to work with a team of high quality managers and coaches, who enable us to make a positive difference to the thousands of people we provide activities for each year. Outside of work, I like to travel and enjoy watching most sports. I windsurf whenever possible and like to put my feet up in front of the telly or with a good book.
