Coaching session on behalf of Sheffield & Hallamshire Football Coaches Association.

Monday 11th February 2019, kick off at 7.30pm a coaching workshop that is strongly recommended:-


Our next guest coach was the former Head of International Football Development and Technical Coordinator (U7-U11) for Everton FC Academy. He is well known for helping develop Wayne Rooney, Victor Anichebe, Jack Rodwell, Ross Barkley, James Vaughan and Jose Baxter plus other Everton starlets to go through Everton’s Academy and play in their first team.

Simon Clifford, founder of Brazilian Futebol de Salao schools in England lauded him as "light years ahead of anyone else".  He is held in very high regard by his peers and is invited globally by various football associations to present his philosophies on youth development in football.  In 2013 and 2014 he was guest clinician at the NSCAA, the world’s biggest football convention. His programme focussed on individual player development and maximising the players potential, in an environment where there was no fear of failure. Former Manchester United and (Senior) England sports psychologist, Bill Beswick has said that Tosh's focus is exclusively on the process of development and he knows if he gets this right the score will take care of itself. Irish FA Chief Executive, Howard Wells, has called Tosh "one of the most inspirational coaches of young players I have seen and one of the world’s leading youth coaches". 

I am of course introducing the inimitable Tosh Farrell.

All the accolades regarding Tosh are extremely accurate and not overstated. If you've seen Tosh before you will definitely appreciate how great he is - if you're going to watch him for the first time, get ready for a superb experience of classic youth coaching.  The motto for Tosh's Development Programme is "The Secret Is in the Detail"......which will be readily seen during his practical demonstration.  Not only is Tosh a wonderful coach but he is extremely humorous and his rapport and ‘banter’ with the players is delightful and well worth seeing. It epitomises the recommendations regarding creating an enjoyable environment for the players to work in.  You will NOT be disappointed with this coaching experience!!

 The theme that Tosh will be delivering is ‘Improving Forward Play / Playing Forward Through Dribbling And One/Two Touch Passing’


Overview: The session is intended to get players to have a positive and controlled approach to playing forward quickly. Ideally through the centre first and wide as a secondary option. Good technique, decision making and support play are crucial.


The initial practices take up minimal space, forcing the players to think quickly and execute good technique in order to be successful.

When:  Monday 11th February 2019; kick off at 7.30pm

Where:  Sheffield United Academy,Firshill Crescent, Shirecliffe, Sheffield S4 7DR

Who:  "The One and Only - Tosh Farrell"

Kind regards
