Daniel Saunders

A new football skills coaching programme starts tomorrow (Tues 26th February) on the Astro Turf play area at Haddenham Community Junior School. The programme is designed for 5 to 7 year olds and is part of a Tesco-sponsored initiative operated by the Football Association, drawing on the skills of FA qualified coaches.

The programme runs every week for 23 weeks (excluding school holidays) at HCJS, from 4-5pm, and costs just £2 per session.

This is part of a national programme, and the Haddenham sessions will be led by Daniel Saunders. Daniel is an FA Tesco Skills coach with the Berkshire and Buckinghamshire team, and works with children and schools in Milton Keynes as part of the Berkshire and Buckinghamshire FA Tesco Skills team. Daniel is a talented goalkeeping coach, he started working with the Under-10 keepers at Watford FC in 2003 and also coached through their Football in the Community programme.

Daniel is a Level 2 qualified coach and has completed the FA Youth Award modules 1 and 2. In his spare time, he coaches the goalkeepers at non-league Hemel Hempstead Town.
