After working for Castle Coaching since 2022, I grew very passionate for the companies values very quickly. From a young age I've wanted to build a place for the next generation to come and relieve the pressures of school and home life and when the opportunity to Co-own Castle Coaching came up I couldn't let it pass. I've always loved working with children and this can be seen in the music lessons I currently run in Baldock and the many years teaching and volunteering in schools I have. I'm very excited to see how we can grow Castle Coaching into the best it can be!

HEAD FOOTBALL COACH

I’ve been involved in football my whole life, in one way or another. I played for Wickham Market until under 18’s and became manager of the Wickham Market under 8’s in 2021. Football is a sport accessible to anyone and everyone and I want to help people improve at the game whilst having fun.

BLAKE SAKER

ASSISTANT FOOTBALL COACH

I joined my first football club aged 4 in Capel St Mary where I grew up. I signed for Tottenham Hotspur FC when I was 12 and moved to London from high school, leaving them just before I turned 20. I then played in the US and Wales before coming back home and playing semi pro for Lowestoft, Stowmarket, Wroxham and for the main Leiston where we made the FA Cup 1st round. I love the way football brings us together and is enjoyed by people of any age.

COVER HEAD FOOTBALL COACH

I've played football for most of my sporting career. I decided to go into teaching to help inspire the next generation of children and help them achieve their goals and aspirations. I believe that football is a powerful tool in helping develop children in their lives, including social and cognition skills.

HEAD RUGBY COACH

I played tag rugby as a child at my local
rugby club and loved every moment of
running around the pitch. As I was one of the
few girls on my team I always wanted to be
better than all of the other players. I’ve been
playing at Hitchin Rugby club since I was 16
and am now in the Women’s 1st team. I recently starting coaching the U12's team at Hitchin and the reward of seeing their face when they get something right makes it all worth it.

DANO DI CREDICO

HEAD FOOTBALL COACH

I've been coaching for a few years in more than one industry. I also work in schools teaching sport to a whole variety of children every week. This has allowed me to learn how to transfer and adapt different skills to any sport. Football has been an escape for me and when I am coaching I am in my element.
