FA Tesco Skills Comes to Cornwall

The FA are extremely excited to announce that the FA Tesco Skills Programme has now arrived in Cornwall, with two excellent coaches who are very much looking forward to working with the budding young players in Cornwall. The two FA Tesco Skills coaches who will be working in Cornwall are Dom Edwards and Paul Rowe.

 Dom Edwards has a background in grassroots clubs having worked with a huge range of different age groups over a six year period, where he has also worked with Everton Football Club as part of a University placement scheme. At Everton FC he was lucky enough to observe some excellent coaching and work with a number of talented players to develop his coaching skills which he hopes to share with the children and coaches he will be working with in Cornwall.

Dom studied Coaching Development at Liverpool John Moores University which has given him a great understanding of coach education, child development and coaching techniques. Dom will be working in the St. Austell area with primary schools, clubs and also leading an FA Skills Centre.

Paul Rowe has been coaching in Cornwall in the grassroots sphere and with Plymouth Argyle for a period spanning almost 20 years. Although working with a wide range of ages, like Dom, Paul’s expertise lies in the development of 5-11 year old players. He has excellent technical knowledge and a great understanding of the specialist areas of development for this particular age group.

Paul also started Cornwall’s first Mini Soccer Centre in his home town of Wadebridge back in the mid 1990‘s and is something he is still running to this very day. He is a firm believer in creating a fun environment where young players of all abilities feel free to experiment. Paul will be working in the Bodmin area with primary schools, clubs and also leading an FA Skills Centre.
