Coaches diary – Today i enjoyed the greatest experience of my coaching journey to date!!Having chosen the team to start todays game while enjoying my morning coffee i knew the lad I’d chosen to play up front would not be happy about starting in that position (he has confidence issues and is not a big fan of running with the ball), and i was right he was not impressed!!
I pulled him to one side before the game and had a one to one chat with him, basically telling him i knew he was capable of going out there getting the ball under control and scoring, and that he needed to believe in himself!!
End result – two goals, MoM and one very happy young lad (and coach).
