Coaching Experience In Football 

I worked at Swansea City Football Club for over 7 years.

The last position I held was Assistant Director of Youth Football and I also held the position of "schoolboy representative" or scout.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the Swans.

I worked on the

Football in the Community programme, where I coached both boys and girls between the ages of 4 and 14.

I also worked in The Centre Of Excellence under the guidance of Malcolm Elias where I coached boys between the ages of 8 and 16.

I have experience at coaching girls, as I use to coach an Under 12's girl's team.

I was a coach at Pontardawe in the Mc Whirter Youth League.

I will help children to develop Co-ordination, Explosive Power, Agility and Speed.

Fast Arm Action, Reaction Time, Acceleration, Visual Awareness, Control, and Strength, so that they can get more out of the sport.

I will also help soccer players to develop better all-around Technical, Tactical, Mental (now "psychosocial') and Physical Abilities to improve their all round game.

I Am Very Proud To Have A Written Endorsement From Malcolm Elias ( Head of Recruitment Fulham Football Club )

To Whom It May Concern:

RE: Stephen Rees

I have known Steve - affectionately known as Reeco - on a professional basis for 19 years since the day I employed him as a coach at the Swansea City Centre of Excellence.

In this capacity, he proved to be the best coach and educator of young players I have worked with in my 18 years full-time involvement in professional football with Oxford United, Swansea City and currently at Southampton Football Club (Now at Fulham FC).

Steve demands high standards of himself and sets a terrific example to the youngsters. His discipline is firm but sympathetic and he has the great asset of being able to form a rapport with young players due largely to his personality and approachable nature.

As well as working with elite players, Steve has also made an effective contribution to work in the community in the Swansea area with youngsters of all abilities.
On the administrative side of football Steve also has vast experience from a full - time position he held at the Vetch when once he again he proved his thorough, organised yet versatile and conscientious nature.

I strongly endorse Steve to you as a person and a coach in his coaching venture. If you wish to discuss anything relating to the enclosed please call me on (contact Reeco personally my #).

Yours Sincerely

Malcolm Elias( Now Head Of Recruitment at Fulham FC )
