FOUNDER / HEAD COACH
WHO AM I?
Ever since I was a young lad I was always football obsessed. My first taste of organised football was when I was 5 years old. My dad used to bring me along to QPR's (Queens Park Rangers) community Saturday football sessions in West London. I loved it from the first session.
Then moving to Australia at a later stage I grew up playing as a junior at Olympic FC (current NPL club), with a few seasons at Eastern Suburbs FC.
My highlight growing up was definitely school football though. In particular playing First XI with St. Laurence's College and beating Terrace on penalties to go through to the Uhlsport Cup Final.
I now play as a centre half at NPL club, Eastern Suburbs.
With over 5 years of coaching experience in South East Queensland, I am a driven and hard-working coach with a real passion in developing young male and female footballers. I have a real passion and drive in developing the players' technical side of their game as I feel this is the biggest weakness in the Australian game, in comparison to the top footballing nations across the world.
I started my Private Private Coaching business in 2020 (formerly Cunnane 1on1 Football Training). I have been privileged to coach clients both in the grassroots side of the game and elite (QAS/NPL/FQ Academy)
