Steve Johnson: Chairman

After losing his leg Steve discovered amputee football which helped him turn his life around. Three World Cups and a Hall Of Fame induction later, Steve takes great pleasure in Chairing the England Amputee Football Association charity and promoting the sport to others in the hope that they get the same enjoyment and success that he has. Steve also has a coaching role within the Junior progam and is helping to grow the game worldwide.


Owen Coyle Jnr: EAFA England Coach

A young and enthusiastic coach with a great upbringing within football that has given Owen experience beyond his age. He served his apprenticeship within Disability & Womens football at Lancashire FA and has since worked with Oldham Athletic Academy & Community Trust and Blackpool FC Community Trust.

Pete Wild: Head of Coaching

As a Social Inclusion officer for Lancashire FA Pete has lots of experience in development and coaching around both able-bodied & disability sport. Pete's current role at Oldham Athletic FC has enabled him to bring another level of professionalism to Amputee football. Pete served as GB head coach for 4 years and has now stepped back to take a more hands off approach, advising the charity and lending his wealth of experience to the EAFA coaches.

Shannon Howarth National Development Officer

EAFA has had the great pleasure to engage in a partnership with Greater Sport & the FA to provide a part time role to increase participation nationally. Shannon comes from a Sport development role within Greater Sport and we are delighted to have her join the EAFA family. Shannon will be working with clubs & community groups to develop inclusion programs & provide opportunites in areas that we have not chance to engage with to date. NB: Donations from the public do not go towards funding this post.

Dave Tweed: Football Development Officer

Dave has been with EAFA since 2001. Over this time he has helped many people get involved in the game and add an extra dimension to their lives. He launched the GBAF project in 2006 and still continues to support England team & EAFA Charity's overall direction & development. If you have any questions about amputee football in any form, Dave is probably the best person to ask.
