Rob is willing to travel up to 6 miles from his training locations.
My Son started having 121 training sessions with Rob during lockdown in 2020, to keep up with training, drills and fitness. Even after a few sessions I could see improvements in his techniques.When the grassroots football finally resumed, his club coach even commented about how his game had improved. Not only did Rob improve my sons physical ability in football he has also helped him with the mental side of it too improving his overall confidence and motivation by sharing his own experiences with him. Since having coaching sessions with Rob my Son has gone on to be accepted through trial to be part of the Brentford development squad. If you are looking for a football coach to take your development to the next level, then I would say stop looking now, as you won’t find a better one out there than Rob!

Rob is a very involved coach and connects easily with the children. We were so pleased to see our son finding his confidence, motivation and focus in playing football whilst training with Rob. Apart from his excellent skills and knowledge in football, Rob guided our son in improving his weaknesses and excelling in his fortes. Rob encouraged him further and his recommendation to apply for Chelsea’s Foundation Skills Centre set the path for our son’s future plans in football. We are very grateful for having found a great character and an amazing teacher in Rob!

My son has been training with Rob since 2020. He always enjoys the session with Rob because the coach is so much fun and really great with children. The session is always carefully planned and personalised to my son’s abilities. Rob can bring out the potential in my son. I can see a clear and big improvement from my son, not only in football skills but also in life skills. My son has been more focus, becomes more brave and confidence. Moreover, we had a chance to have a trial for Chelsea development and my son passed the trial thanks to Rob’s guidance and help.
