The FAW Pro Licence cohort of coaches spent their latest contact time at Crystal Palace, with new manager Roy Hodgson and his coaching team.
Hodgson invited the group of 16 coaches, which included former Palace captain Mile Jedinak, to watch a training session ahead of Crystal Palace’s 2-1 English Premier League victory over Leicester City on Saturday (1 April).
The cohort then took part in a Q&A at the Crystal Palace Training Centre, with Sporting Director Dougie Freedman and Academy Director Gary Isott also speaking to the group.
Undertaking their third out of five contacts, the group also received sessions involving Arsenal Assistant Albert Stuivenberg, Sunderland Manager Tony Mowbray, and qPR Technical Director Chris Ramsey.
Norwich Sporting Director Stewart Webber and League Managers Association Legal Director Lindsay Gordon were also part of the learning experience.
“The purpose of this contact was to expose the candidates to the wider disciplines that support the coaching process. I thank the Crystal Palace staff for providing this case study.”FAW Chief Football Officer, Dr David Adams
