JON NEWTON - LEAD COACH

COMMUNITY COACH OF THE YEAR 2014

((see Endorsements) 

I am the father of two boys who I introduced to football from an early age and have continued to encourage and develop their football skills. Both sons have played football for school and district teams and also for local clubs within the Central Warwickshire Youth Football League and the Junior Midland Premier League. I have been involved and supported the managers of their club teams from them playing at under 7's to now my eldest son at under 21's

I have lived in Bromsgrove since 1992 and took my sons to football camps and development centres outside of the Bromsgrove area as I was aware that there was a lack of this type of opportunity available in Bromsgrove that developed children's grassroots football experiences with the aim to encourage their enjoyment of the game and when and if appropriate progress to competitive football within an FA affiliated Club environment.

It was for this reason that I decided to try to offer such opportunities for children living in the Bromsgrove and surrounding area and founded Grassroots Football Development School in January 2010.

I approached Worcestershire FA and they fully supported my views and were only too happy to help me to gain the necessary training and support me in setting up. 

I hold an FA Level 1 and Level 2 Coaching Certificate, have obtained my Youth Football Module 1 and Module 2 Certificates and am currently.  I am also an FA Licensed Coach and complete annual CPD in line with FA required criteria.  I also hold Certificates in First Aid and Safequarding Children and also a current up to date DBS.

 In 2013 we were awarded a Bronze Accreditation to Worcestershire Football Association and I am proud to announce that only a year later in 2014 we have been accredited with the GOLD AWARD.
