Almost 18 months after the last roundtable podcast I did, in this episode we have our third, the Special ‘Youth Football’ Edition featuring Paul Bower (Barnsley FC), Luke Jenkinson (Sheffield United FC) and Kevin Paxton (Leicester City FC). I loved the previous 2 roundtable podcast I did and have tried to line up a few more over the last few months, but it has proved very difficult with how busy peoples schedules are. So, I am delighted to get these guys on for a chat about youth football and I thank them for their patience and cooperation in making this happen.

In this episode you will learn –

  • Who are Paul, Luke and Kevin (background, education and current roles)
  • The realities of the EPPP and how it has changed your roles
  • Introducing a multisports/games curriculum
  • Integrating technology into an academy
  • Working on a shoe string budget
  • On field fitness with academy players

This episode is sponsored by Vald Performance, the team behind the NordBord and Train with PUSH, makers of the PUSH band.
