We are looking to recruit experienced coaches to run our teams and also less experienced coaches or players/ex-players interested in taking up coaching.

Inexperienced coaches are very welcome to come and join as assistants to our Lead Coaches to enjoy the fun of running a team and develop your experience and lead a team in future seasons. This includes senior school pupils interested in developing their coaching and leadership skills.

    I’m a 23 year old Emirati footballer who would love to help coach one of your teams. I’m currently injured with a shoulder dislocation pending surgery in January, therefore, I’d like to use this time to still be involved in the game I love so much by managing younger footballers and conveying what I know. I’ve competed for trials (2012) at football club Academies in England; but had to cut my trials short due to an ankle injury which recurred to me at the time (I’ve had a bumpy few years with unfortunate injuries.) I’ve had the opportunity to coach an adult team this Ramadan in a closed tournament of 10 teams, with home and away matches played, where my team reached the semi-final.

    Also, I’m an ex-Thistles player, I enjoyed slightly more than half a season (2014) where I came to help out the u18s in the Haddin’s league; I used it as an opportunity to get back into the game after being injured for a while.

    I’m still very keen on returning to pursuing a professional football career – to help indicate further more how serious I am about football.

    If you have anymore questions regarding my footballing background, I’d be more than happy to share it with you.

    Thank you for time.

    Best Regards,
