I have worked in Education and Sport throughout my entire career. I qualified as a PE teacher in 1982 and subsequently taught in two secondary schools in north London.
In 1989, I moved to Colchester to take up the position of Assistant Director of Sport at the University of Essex. In 1998, I became Director of Sport and remained in this position until 2016.
I have played and/or coached football since childhood and, throughout my University career, I voluntarily coached and managed the University football teams.
I hope I will able to utilise the experience I have gained over the years to help guide and support the coaches who are delivering the wide range of activities in schools.
