He said: “I am absolutely delighted to be the new owner and lead coach for the Kixx Goole & Selby Academies.

“Whilst I have always loved playing the game, what inspires me even more is coaching and helping other people on their journey.

“Not just coaching children to be better footballers, but more importantly helping children become better people, teaching skills that are not only vital for on the pitch, but off the pitch too.

“It’s more important that our next generation have a healthy attitude towards getting active and this starts with making sure children are enjoying the learning process.
