An Exciting Challenge

Just before Easter I had a call from a coaching colleague and, following our conversation and a meeting to discuss the details, I'm delighted to be getting involved in what I believe to be a superb coaching programme that creates a positive outcome either way, for 16 to 21 year old ex pro club academy players to get another chance with a pro club, or a possible job and career through an apprenticeship from a business sponsoring them.  The businesses benefit from this too and it seems to be a win-win situation all round.  We'll be holding trials shortly and then working with the players for two and a half days per week plus running two teams, playing regular fixtures against pro academies and other semi-pro club youth teams.  This is a really exciting proposition as I get to coach a team as well as provide some good quality feedback through video analysis.  We'll be working with Calderdale College's media studies team.  We're in final stage talks with a club for a training and match day venue.  All is looking good and I'll keep you posted as things click fully into place.

    Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with Search Engine Optimization? I'm trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I'm not seeing very good gains. If you know of any please share. Kudos!

    Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
