  • Owner of MR Sports
  • Professional Football Player
  • 10 years Coaching Experience
  • I am the owner and founder of MR Sports, one of the UK’s leading coaching companies that was set up in 2011. Originally MR Sports was set up as a sporting company due to my background in sports, however the professionalism of the business and my desire to work with as many children as possible; MR Sports has expanded to cater for a whole spectrum of clubs, sports, activities and games!

    Coaching has been a large part of my life for over 10 years; gaining experience and qualifications with the IFA and other coaching organisations that has ultimately led to setting up MR Sports.

    I am a professional football player currently playing in the Scottish Professional Football League with previous clubs to include Cliftonville, Crusaders, Derry City and Portadown. I have played for Northern Ireland at Under Age Level from Under 16-19 so feel my experience as a professional player has enabled me to gain a wealth of experience that I am able to pass on to the coaches who work with us and also the children that we coach at MR Sports.

    The ethos at MR Sports is to deliver “fun” and “totally inclusive” sessions in a range of disciplines to include sports, dance, drama, gymnastics, arts & crafts, martial arts and more. Enjoyment is paramount in children’s development and something I feel very strongly about hence my desire to provide a service that all ability levels and interests can benefit from.
