What made you start coaching? My brother and sister’s team needed a coach. I was only 13, I didn’t have much of a clue to be honest. I was lucky I had my dad to assist on game day. This current role is the 1stI have applied for. Previously I have just filled a need.
What is your personal coaching goal? Coaching is a hobby. I really love it, so my goal would be for my teams to be as successful as possible whilst being enjoyable for all, including myself.
Favourite achievement (as a coach) Winning the league at Tweed United as assistant to my good friend Dennis Dodd. It came after many years of changing the culture with a good bunch of people. It was a major achievement for all those involved.
Favourite Holiday Destination: Italy
Favourite Food: Chocolate
Favourite Movie: Braveheart
Advice for anyone wanting to coach? Build a network of other coaches. They are the only ones who truly know what you go through. Have fun, and don’t take yourself too serious.
Well done Nathan and keep up the great work!
