I've competed at academy level and played football competitively for 14 years. I used to play full-time in the US as a part of a university team. I now play semi-professionally. I have a FA Level 1 Award in Coaching Football and am DBS certified. I coach privately and have also coached for Brentford FCCST.
My aim is to develop you as a footballer. An introductory lesson to test your abilities will help me to assess what traits/abilities need the most improvement. We will then discuss to agree on a set of football-related goals.
My goal as your trainer is to help you reach those achievable goals in a realistic amount of time. I will guide you with any advice as to how and what to train outside of our training. I maintain a strong work ethic and like to approach each session positively - I expect the same from my clients.
I alternatively also offer lessons for beginners who are looking to find an enjoyable way to learn about the game!
Eight years of coaching experience, including one-on-one and group sessions.
I have been coached by an ex-Premier League footballer and received one-on-one training from an ex-professional for over four years. I also currently train and play with the FFDTV academy.
I have coached voluntarily for Brentford FCCST for four years and was a player for the 2014-16 cohort of their futsal programme.
I am looking to use this experience to guide my future clients towards their goals!

Perfect! My son is finding the lessons very helpful and confidence building !
Perfect! Alfie has been with my son for a few short months and in that period has made a dramatic difference to my son’s football skills. In the several years prior to this point my son had been in a variety of group football lessons and playing at school. However, his progress took a dramatic turn for the better with the assistance of Alfie. Alfie is both patient as well as professional and is able to be a great role model for youngsters. He makes lessons interesting and imparts real knowledge and skills which would otherwise be difficult to obtain. I’m happy to whole heartedly recommend Alfie to any parent.
I have had the pleasure of working with Alfie for the last 2 and a half years as he prepared for a soccer scholarship to university in America and have remained in contact since.
Alfie was and still is to this date one of the most mature and focused young men I have had the pleasure of working with.
Alfie works very hard on both his academic work and on the pitch, with constant desire to improve. He is always looking to better himself and I believe Alfie is a worthy mentor to any young athlete/student.
