The Tasburgh United Under 14s are led by Dan Edwards, an FA Level 1 qualified coach who has been coaching for 7 years (studying for Level 2 now). Talking about his Under 14s, Dan said that: ‘The boys are a real credit to their families and to the club. They are a brilliant group of lads who always give their best. To be playing in the Premiership in the 2019-20 season is just reward for all their efforts and improvement since starting out as under 8s in 2013.’
Dan coaches alongside Brian Bush, an excellent, level 1 qualified coach, and also with Phil Towers, another top-notch, experienced coach with a superb focus on the boys’ individual development. Brian has been coaching alongside Dan for over 3 years, and Phil has been with them for a season, so far…!
