Current Team
CPD Barnet

I started coaching early 2006 to help young people. I use the power of football to help change the lives of young people across London, particularly the most hard-to-reach and hard-to-help. We work with a significant number of young people each year, inspiring them to find a better path and to lead a healthier life.

CPD Barnet are in Association with Crystal Palace Academy. The centre is based in Brent where we give young players the opportunity to represent a Premier League club.

The centre is run by UEFA qualified coaches, and players are invited to train in our Elite squad on Fridays.

In addition to this, we have several development squads running alongside for players striving to better their ability and achieve a place in the Elite groups.
