After the success of the first team during the 19/20 season, the club moved quickly to appoint both first team coaches, Craig Nichols and Josh Coney, to the role of Academy Lead Coaches alongside their first team duties. This gives the players the unique advantage of receiving a training programme and playing philopshy which sets them up perfectly to progress further within the club. Having first team coaches deliver our Academy Programme sets us apart from any other club in the region and shows the intent the club have to help these young players progress through the clubs pathway into the first team squad.
Both Craig and Josh boast a wealth of experience both in the UK and the US and have a proven record of developing players in professional academies and across the women's game.
Craig is currently completing his UEFA 'A' License, whilst Josh is a UEFA 'B' Licensed coach and is due to complete his UEFA Goalkeeping 'B' License once football returns after COVID-19.
