On course to have my UEFA B Licence by 21. Despite being young, I have already worked at high levels playing and coaching within the SFA and in foreign countries such as America, Gibraltar and currently in Dubai at Dubai City FC where I am a coach for the academy and elite set up. I am also currently doing an online HND degree in Sports Coaching and Exercise Science. In my time coaching I have been in charge of youth teams aged 7-18 years old, ran half term/holiday camps, ASN sessions and camps. In my current role at City FC I am in charge of the u10 Elite Squad, where I run 3/4 sessions a week, in charge of recruitment for the squad, and take them on match days in the Youth Football League (Dubai). As well as this I am also entrusted with taking the u12 Girls Squad where I take 2/3 sessions a week and help oversee their games. Additionally I hold the same role for the u16 academy side. I am also involved in several activities within the schools here such as school support within PE departments working alongside the schools team, leading sessions and running extra curricular activity sessions for kids between the age of 4-11. I do this 4/5 times a week.
