I’m Danny Payne and I am the Principle Coach for the U14’s Irons. I have been a parent and coach in a football club for 8 years and came to LYFC in 2014 when our whole team moved clubs.
I am a FA licensed coach and I hold a FA Level 1 Coaching Certificate, Safeguarding and Advanced Emergency First Aid Certificates.
I have coached a team since 2011 and my ethos is that every child has the right to play football and develop their skills at their pace. I believe that football should be accessible to all and above all should be fun.
I work closely with the coaches of the other U13’s teams and the U14’s Hammers, all of which (including the Irons) are managed by Andy Atwell.
My team has seen several successes, including winning NWYFL U12’s Division 2 last season. This year we are looking forward to the challenges of playing in Division 1 for the first time.
