My football as a player/coach:

As a youngster I played football everywhere and got into academy system to a Polish Premier League Club at that time – RKS Rakow Czestochowa as a 11 years old boy and trained there for a few months.

When I was 24 I’ve formed my first team in a 7 aside league in Peterborough and played 2 years in the league finishing 2nd and 3rd in both seasons. After that I’ve started to coach in grassroots for 6 years and had a chance to send few players for trials to Peterborough United FC.

For the past almost 2 years now I’ve been coaching 4-5 times a week for Peterborough Junior Foxes in association with LCFC, mainly working with Pre-academy players U8-U15.

In 2018.09.01- I’ve started to work for Cambridge United FC coaching players U7-U14 in Development Centres and also coaching in a Futsal program.

In 2019.02-09 I was coaching in California, USA in a Elite LA GALAXY OC program for U7-U14 players.

MY PERSONALITY SEEN BY MYSELF:

I am an open person and I respect people’s opinions, I see myself as a professional coach that wants to be better and
