A: from Chris Kirby … Its great to have ambition. You sound like I did when I started coaching at the age of 15. I am now 22 and am working for a professional club within their centre of excellence and working my way up the coaching badges, currently qualified to UEFA B standard. I went to Uni to do a sports coaching degree, I hear Liverpool Uni does it. I went down this route as to be a top top manager you need to gain experience at ever level. It will be hard but I am not knocking your ambition, as the famous quote goes, aim for the sky and you will never reach the stars, aim for the stars and you will reach the sky! set your targets high, just have realistic ones.
