Ryan Semple

Manchester City U15’s-U16’s Coach

  • Date Joined: 30th August 2016
My career in football has been a true lifelong journey. The game has been my passion for as long as I can remember and my earliest memories are playing at every opportunity with whoever was available or on my own if needs be, for hours on end. I represented Peterborough United as an academy and first team player for 12 years, which later saw me have the chance to come full circle and start my coaching journey at the club. I led in all 3 phases in the Academy for a combined total of almost 9 years, demonstrating management both in leading players and multi disciplinary staff.

My time at The Football Association gave me my first chance to demonstrate my coaching skills with players at the highest level, both nationally and internationally. This helped to build on my ability to technically and tactically problem solve in an elite performance environment. Finally my time to date at Manchester City has enabled me to enhance this knowledge & expand further my understanding of what is required within the pressures of a world class organisation day in, day out.

Having been a professional footballer, coach and business owner, I feel that all of the above experiences have given me the tools to continue developing and growing as a manager and person within the game I love.
