The programme will be headed up by Liam Kay who is the Lead Coach of the Scholarship team, he had this to say upon its launch, ‘I myself played for professional clubs such as Aston Villa and Barnsley FC as a youth until the age of 20 when injury struck. I then had a couple of seasons playing semi-professional football for AFC Emley so I am aware of what standard is required to progress in the game. I have a vast knowledge of football coaching having worked with academies such as Barnsley FC and Manchester City, I have since joined Manchester United as both a scout and coach. I also work for England FA mentoring coaches, tutoring and coaching the England disability ID camp. I am trained as a UEFA coach and have completed my FA module three’.
