Hi, I’m Craig, U10Blue Coach.

I am level one trained but always striving to improve my football knowledge.

Football has been a massive part of my life for as long as I can remember. I’m a massive Leicester City fan and follow them as much as I can. I played competitive football until I was 21,which I would still be playing now if it wasn’t for a knee injury. However from then it was always an ambition to coach!

I’ve worked in education for 15 years, including 10 years as a PE teacher. When the opportunity¬†was presented to coach at Ropsley it was a no brainer. I’ve really enjoyed coaching these amazing kids for over a year and their improvements¬†are what keep me motivated. As long as they are smiling throughout training and the matches, it’s all worth it.
