  • 15/10/2018

It is the dream of many youngsters we meet to play for Millwall FC and follow in the footsteps of their heroes with fame and fortune. Not many want to follow into the roles of managers or coaching staff.

Millwall Community Trust are offering the perfect opportunity for those who want to be the next Neil Harris!

MCT regularly run courses for budding managers, giving them their first qualification on the football coaching ladder.

The next series of FA Level 1 courses are due to take place in January and March 2019, with the courses to be held at the Lion’s Centre , next to Millwall FC Stadium.

Millwall Community Trust football and sports development manager Sean Daly said ” The  FA level 1 certificate offers an opportunity for football coaches to be supported in developing the knowledge of how to effectively manage and coach a local club team and develop the skills and techniques of young people in that club. The qualification will provide candidates with a further knowledge in the principles and practices of safe, ethical and effective management and style of coaching of a team between the ages of seven and sixteen as an assistant under the supervision of a qualified coach”
