Many thanks to Shay for our last coaching workshop which covered ‘playing out from the back’ with regards to ‘the foundation phase’. A very informative session, delivering lots of ideas to take away and use with our own foundation phase age groups. Topical and easy to follow practices given to the excellent  Owls Academy players – who performed superbly and provided attendees with their standard of football.


Nb: Shay’s session plans will be delivered asap.


Our next guest coach is Richard Beale, a highly regarded and very well respected coach who has The UEFA Pro Licence, UEFA ‘A’ Licence and Academy Manager’s Licence amongst other qualifications to his name. Richard started his coaching career at Birmingham City in 2003 and worked his way through the coaching ranks, with The Blues. During the last 8 seasons Richard has been Birmingham City’s Senior Professional Development Coach and has also coached The Blues U21 and U23 teams. Richard was instrumental in the development of players such as Nathan Redmond, Demarai Gray and Jack Buckland as they emerged through The Blues Academy Youth System. During his long serving career at The Blues, Richard was also the clubs 1st team coach for 11 months. Birmingham fans were devastated during 2019’s summer months with Richard’s loss, by mutual consent. Richard has joined ‘Midlands rivals’ Aston Villa, as their Youth Team Manager, working alongside George Boateng.


Richard’s theme will be DEFENDING, a topic that hasn’t been covered for quite a while – probably a theme too long away from our coaching workshops. Defending is now ‘an art’, with principles such as delaying, denying/depth, concentration/compactness, balance, discipline and patience.


Fed up of defensive frailty and mistakes that lead to goals?? Come along and watch Richard educate us into providing defensive principles of play:-


WHEN: Wednesday 23rd October 2019 – 7pm kick off


WHERE: Sheffield Wednesday Academy/Training Ground Middlewood Road Sheffield S6 1TF


WHO: Richard Beale – Aston Villa Youth Team Coach
