New England Under 18 Manager

13 October 2016

Congratulations to Mr Lavelle who has recently taken on the role of team manager for the England Schoolboys FA International Under 18 football team after being assistant manager for the past two years.

Mr Lavelle has been involved with schoolboy football for over 30 years, taking on roles such as Blackpool secretary, Lancashire coach, and now England coach, and at the same time having to attain his coaching badges including his UEFA A licence badge which took five years to complete.

"We are trying to encourage and open up routes for Aspire students to progress in football through local district trials, with the aim of moving up to national level. But ultimately, it’s about our students enjoying sport,” said Mr Lavelle.
