What I am passionate about sport and have a good knowledge of long term athlete development, grassroots, semi professional and professional sport (in particular football) having been involved in various capacities over the years from playing, managing, coaching to being the chairman of a grassroots league.
I know the difficulties involved running a club from first hand experience, having spent 3 years building a successful grassroots football club, including managing all admin and finance tasks. I am a current grassroots coach at my Son's under 7 team undergoing my FA Level 2 award.
I have studied digital transformation, have a Google certification in digital marketing and was involved in setting up website and social media channels for Middlesbrough Supporters South in addition to setting up and running my own nutrition website. I have a strong knowledge of IT systems, having been involved in developing a comprehensive logistics system alongside IT for a major power plant.
Although not directly involved in bid writing, I have been contract manager on a major project and involved on project/contract development for a successful multi-million pound major capital project. I was an active fundraiser for many years, organising charity football matches at Middlesbrough's Riverside Stadium and Millwalls New Den.
In summary, I have a strong mix of skills including but not limited to research & development, business improvement, knowledge & innovation, digital transformation, science (including sports science) in addition to hands on experience gained over many years. I believe that this breadth of knowledge can be of benefit to North Yorkshire Sport and the regions clubs and settings and hopefully provide potential alternative ideas.
