Chester FC Academy are pleased to welcome Carl Wild on board as the new Lead Coach for the Junior Section!
Carl is a Head Lecturer at UCFB as well as being employed by the FA as a Coach Educator.
He is the perfect profile for this role and is leaving a similar position within Manchester City’s Girls Academy to join the Blues. Carl attended two interviews, including a practical interview where he led a session with the Chester FC Scholars.
Academy Head Coach Calum McIntyre said: “I am delighted to welcome Carl to the club to continue to good work that has gone before within our junior section.
“Carl comes with a wealth of experience on numerous sectors, particularly around coach education.
“We feel this will be of enormous benefit to the volunteer coaches and I am excited to see him drive standards as we move through the restructure of our Academy.”
On starting his new role with the club, Carl said: “I am really excited to be joining a club that plays such an important role in the local community and has such an excellent reputation and record for developing young talent.
“I can’t wait to get started and I am really looking forward to meeting all of the young players and supporting them along their development pathway.”
Welcome to Chester FC, Carl!
