Meet the team

Football Coaching was created to give individuals in the North East the best chance to develop into the footballer they wish to become by bridging the gap between Professional Football Academies and Grassroots Football. Its a unique service that brings professional coaches into the local community. Evolution aim to deliver the best individual coaching programme there is by providing our constant attention and detail with professional coaching from ex-professional players; we identify weaknesses and develop them into strengths.
