It’s a pleasure to be coaching with PACE FC! I’m thoroughly enjoying working with the kids and watching them develop a passion for soccer – or, being British – “football” as I call it. I’ve been playing football since I was about 5; my brother and I had a big goal set up in our back garden (I still remember curling a freekick around him into the top corner… or maybe I dreamed that…) I played all through school and off-and-on through my 20s and 30s. I recently got back into playing and am now on PACE FC’s >35s squad where I’m enjoying learning a lot from our own coach. I’m a lifelong Everton fan (despite not growing up anywhere near Liverpool – Everton is a district in Liverpool) and have also recently started following our own Pacific FC.
