Dan is the most qualified coach at the club and possesses a UEFA B licence. He plans and runs all first team training, as well as assisting with coaching across the rest of Battle Baptists. As a committee member, he leads on the club’s football development plan.

He initially joined Battle Baptists as third team manager when the side were bottom of the league and led them to a third place finish and a cup quarter-final in his first full season.  Their achievements included an unbeaten home league season – a first in Battle’s history as a club.

In 2015/16 he coached the first team to an expectation defying runners-up finish in the ESFL Premier Division.

As well as working at Battle Baptists, Dan is also a senior football coach at the prestigous Tonbridge School, which is one of the country’s top independent schools for sport, and works with Arsenal Soccer School’s development centre squads for the Kent, Sussex and Surrey region.
