Mark Murison

Assistant Manager

  • Date Joined: 27th August 2020
I am a highly ambitious and driven UEFA A Licence and UEFA Elite Youth A Licence Coach who has cultivated a portfolio of achievements and experience within First Team and Academy levels to drive the development of senior and youth players.

As a proactive professional I am proficient at devising and designing player development strategies and programmes which can be utilised throughout a club and can implement coaching programmes in line with a club’s philosophy and vision.

Furthermore I am a forward-thinking individual who has overseen the growth and expansion of my own football coaching business; Little Legs Football, to deliver coaching sessions and sporting activities to children aged between 18-months and 7-years-old.

• Four youth players coached at Haverfordwest County made their first team debuts
• Two youth players coached at Bridon Ropes FC signed for Charlton Athletic FC

Playing Career:
• Represented a variety of Non-League clubs between 2002 and 2014
• These included Gravesend & Northfleet, Chatham, Whitstable and Lordswood FC
• Commenced on the coaching pathway while playing and completed coaching badges
• Delivered sessions to the youth teams at Whitstable and Lordswood FC
• Supported the First Team Manager to implement training at both clubs

Testimonial:
“Mark was an exceptional student on our UEFA A Licence course and was engaged in all areas of study. Through his work on the course we witnessed his attributes as a Coach and I am sure given the opportunity Mark will continue to develop as a first-class Coach in the future.”- Dr David Adams: Technical Director, FAW Trust

Testimonial:
“Having worked with Mark as his mentor on his UEFA A licence course with the FAW Trust, he showed great professionalism throughout the process. When challenged through feedback, theory and practical elements of the course he constantly delivered and showed how eager he was to develop and learn. He works well as an individual and within a team structure, always looking to give his opinion while at the same time taking on board others opinions. He works well as a team member and has shown a tremendous amount of character throughout the course. He was a pleasure to work with.” - Allan Bickerstaff: UEFA A Licence Mentor & FAW Tutor
