Brian McDermott

UEFA Licenced Academy Coach (Shelbourne)

  • Date Joined: 24th August 2019
I’m a highly driven, experienced and motivated UEFA B Licence coach with an unrivalled passion for football. I pride myself on being a highly adaptable and hard working coach who will go to great lengths preparation wise to provide training sessions of the highest calibre.

In total I have amassed over 15+ years coaching experience as I began coaching in my mid teen’s. Be it from working for the F.A.I at headquarters in Abbotstown, Dublin. Head Coach at F.A.I. Summer Camps, to coaching in schools throughout Ireland as an F.A.I Auxiliary coach. Managing/coaching underage club and inter-league teams, as well as both club and inter-league adult men’s teams.

I have worked with both boys and girls/male and female players which range in age from 3 years old to adults, taking up a variety of roles in the process from administrative, head coach, first team manager, auxiliary coach, director of football.

My current roles are –

Head Coach of Shelbourne u19s (one of Ireland’s top clubs) - I work with elite underage players on a weekly basis, putting on a wide range of high standard coaching sessions which will not only develop individual players but incorporates the development of the whole team.

I also have a past playing career at some semi-professional clubs in Ireland also, as well as playing at a very good level locally for both club sides and inter-league teams.

Open to coaching anywhere in the world,

Thanks for taking the time to read my profile
