ESFA Appoint New England Goalkeeping Coach

ESFA are delighted to welcome Connor Sidley-Adams on board with the England U18 Squad

The ESFA has gained a new member of the England U18 Schoolboy management team, welcoming Connor as the U18 Boys’ Goalkeeping coach…although he has prior U18 Schoolboys experience with the ESFA…

Connor, who himself represented England Schoolboys at U18 level in the 2011/12 season, has since gone on to graduate from Bournemouth University, held roles with the FA as a Coach Developer and is now studying for his MSc in Sports Coaching whilst working for SGS College as a Learning Area Manager.

Mark Hignett, ESFA Vice Chairman said “The ESFA are delighted with our appointment of former U18 schoolboy international Connor Sidley-Adams to the position of U18 Boys Goalkeeping Coach. Connor really impressed our panel with his application and interview and we know he will be a superb addition to the management team and our association.”

Following his appointment, Connor said “The year I was part of the schoolboy set up was one of the best experiences of my life, one I talk about to this day! We got to play at some of the best grounds in the country, alongside some great people and under an amazing coaching team led by Andy Williams! I’m now looking forward to life on the other side of the fence, supporting the players to have the best experience of their lives and one that they can look back on for years to come with fond memories!

The ESFA are looking forward to when they are able to begin hosting International football again and welcoming Connor fully into the team.
