Coach Recruitment

The future is bright for South Shields FC’s junior section after the announcement made by the club today.

South Shields FC is returning home, and it is the news all the youth team players and volunteer coaches have been hoping for.

Martin Urwin, who heads the young Mariners committee alongside Stephen Taylor, said: “This is fantastic news for not only the club, but also for the town.

“The interest in the club has never been greater which bodes well for the development of young players through the clubs ‘Future’ project.

“We have a fantastic group of people working within the youth section of the club and will look to expand as soon as possible, although where coaching is concerned, we believe it is imperative the club attracts individuals who understand exactly how children develop.”

Martin added: “We are currently on the look-out for great coaches to work with the most important group of all: reception class and school year one children.

“The Dutch believe that the best coaches work with the youngest age groups, and it’s a theory I support.

“Any coach interested in joining the club will receive our full backing, including a full range of resources including equipment and a safe and secure environment to work in.

“The club offers a unique coaching mentor service to all of its volunteers, a system where the club’s experienced coaches provide advice and support for the less-experienced men and women who may be hoping to make a career in coaching.”

If you are a qualified FA Coach with up-to-date CRC, Safeguarding children and Emergency first aid certificates that loves the game and wants to work with similar minded coaches, then this could be a great opportunity.

Working with and developing children to become lifelong participants in sport offers tremendous personal satisfaction and guarantees happy smiling faces all around!
