Welcome to my web site .
All football supporters are welcome, particularly players and coaches who have played for me or worked with me during my career. I wish for this site to be a meeting place for those thousands of people from my past to the present day to keep in touch .
I also welcome to the site Finnish players and coaches who have attended or assisted me with my Finnish Football Schools, which have been a great success in recent years across Finland, in Rauma, Uusikaupunki , Turku , Masku , Lisalmi and Seinajoki.
I am also the representative in England for the famous Kokkola Cup and have encouraged teams from the UK and Ireland to take part in it. I have taken my own teams there many times and also to the City Friendship Cup in Turku, Tournaments in Tornio and Ekenas and the Indoor Tournaments at Seinajoki and Lahti .

Denmark has always been a special place for me and in particular the village of Norhalne in Northern Jutland. I have visited this small community over 100 times with my teams . I am the UK and Irish representative of their wonderful Norhalne Cup . It is my hope that many more teams will participate as a result of this web site.
I have always derived great pride in turning many talented young players into professionals and hope that this web site will give some insights into how this is done.

Finally, I am Irish and a supporter of the Irish National Team. I hope that I can generate interest in Irish football through this site.
PS. I love music in particular rock and blues and think I am a bit of an expert on Bob Dylan ! I follow F1, and have had a life long interest in motorcycle racing. I travel widely both with teams and also with my wife and family so may well add items about these from time to time.
