I have known Ben for over 20 years. I was Ben’s coach at Chelsea FC youth academy. Ben was a talented player, a very good technician, and a pleasure to coach. As a youth player he was very receptive to his coaches and worked really hard to improve his game. I was proud to see Ben go on to play at a high semi-professional level. I was really pleased when our sporting paths crossed again three years ago when I was able to offer Ben a professional coaching position at Gillingham Football clubs youth academy advanced development centre.
During his three seasons at Gillingham he has developed into a fine confident coach. His calm coaching style has helped many of the young players to improve and he is highly respected by them, their parents, and all the coaching staff. We all at Gills wish him well and he will be greatly missed.
