Managers & Coaches
Andy Martino - Coach
I am a FA Level 4 coach and have worked in the football industry for over 20 years, including 18 years in Southampton’s successful youth academy. Worked at both grass roots and elite level. I have worked as a Football Development Manager for over 10 years . I am also a FA Affiliate tutor delivering Junior Football Leaders Award, Level 2 Award in Leadership Through Football, FA level 1 and FA Level 2 Awards.
Training and the match day experience is designed to allow all players to experience playing in different positions and it has enabled all the players to put into practice, all of the skills and techniques that we focus on in training. For all the players it has been a steep learning curve and every single player has risen to the challenge.
We aim to create a development environment that allows the players not only to build on their team play, but to improve the young players confidence and individual ability. Individual challenges are set to every player on numerous occasions during games and training, which are then always discussed in a positive manner - whether the challenge has been met or not.
