Steve also has a coaching role within the Junior progam and is helping to grow the game worldwide.

About the England National Squad Coach
Owen Coyle Jnr. 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 currently enjoys his role within the Blackpool FC Community Trust.

About the Head of Coaching
Pete Wild has worked in football coaching for many years and took up his role as GBAF coach in the middle of 2011. 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 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.
