Sport is such a big part of my life. In fact it is all I do and I have developed such a passion for making children as active as possible and to give them confidence to play sport. I set up my own coaching company over 10 years ago, coming straight out of college knowing that this was the job for me and it has grown so much since. Starting out as Jack Dillon Soccer School and only working a couple of hours a day, the business has evolved into Soccerin Schools, then around 4 years ago I created Just Play Sports.
My base is in Walter Infants School and St. Pauls Junior School in Wokingham, which I absolutely love. I’m the lucky one who gets to meet the children when they come through the door at 4 years old, watch them grow and develop as sportsmen and women and then wave them out the door at the grand age of 11 years old. It truly is a pleasure.
I have gained a wealth of experience working with different coaches and teachers, learning techniques and ways of passing my knowledge and enthusiasm to the children. During college I gained vital experience with a company called New Era Soccer, then further down the line I was able to gain experience with Ex Chelsea professional Tore Andre Flo and his soccer school, along with my still growing experience they helped develop me into the coach I am today.
As I mentioned sport is my life and when I am not working you will find me on the golf course, playing tennis, potting snooker balls or in Farnham playing for my football team. I have played Semi Professional football for over 10 years, 7 of which were with Farnham FC. This is not something I will be able to do forever but I will do it as long as I love playing and don’t ache too much in the mornings!
I hope you all enjoy my outlook on sport!

I started coaching in 2012 part time with Soccerin Schools, I decided to become a coach as I have such a passion for football and sport. I have played for various teams and in various sports but football has always been my favourite. Since 2015 I became a full time coach for Soccerin Schools and have worked in Hayes. This year in Hayes has helped my to progress as a coach as well as learning about creating a pressure free environment where children can feel relaxed and enjoy sport at the same time.

I started coaching with Jack back in the summer of 2016 for my volunteering section of my Silver Duke of Edinburgh. I had known Jack from when I was at St Pauls and in Year 6 took part in his lunch time football clubs and I know how much fun the clubs that Jack run are. I have loved playing sport all my life and have played for Wokingham and Emmbrook Football Club for Seven years and currently play for their Under 18 side. I have also played rugby for my secondary school, Emmbrook, and enjoyed every minute of it. It is this love, passion and enthusiasm for sport that I love passing on to the kids that I work with. I am currently studying for my A-Levels so I do some part time work for Jack after school at St Pauls and help out on holiday camps.

I started coaching with Soccerin Schools in January 2018, after having enjoyed coaching during my work experience with Jack in the previous academic year whilst at my old school Ranelagh. I have always had a huge love and passion for football and sport since a young age and I still do now. I have played for Reading FC’s Advanced and Elite squads to currently playing for Maidenhead United Academy and Youth Team as well as Wokingham & Emmbrook Sumas U18s.
I have known Jack for a long time from when he used to take the sessions at New Era Soccer when I was three, as well as Touré Andre Flow Academy later on and lunch time sessions with Soccerin Schools at St Paul’s. Since I have experienced these sessions first hand , I have a good understanding of how they are structured and how they are made fun for all children, which has benefited me in my coaching. I have completed my FA Level 1 Coaching in Football and Level 1 Sports Volunteering as well about to start my FA Level 2 Coaching in Football, later this year. These qualifications has given me experience for coaching children in different sports.
I am currently working part time at Soccerin Schools and my predominant location is in the Wokingham area. I am currently studying my BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport qualification at BCA in Maidenhead.
