Development Team Staff Announcement

The club are delighted to announce our new Development Team staff; Jamie Sherwood joins as Manager and Peter Fordham as Coach.

Both Jamie and Peter bring extensive coaching and youth experience to their roles. Jamie holds a UEFA A License and is A FAWSL Championship Winning Head Coach. He is currently Head of Football at the Cardiff & Vale College.

Jamie has a proud heritage in player development and player progression with over 20 players in four years at Yeovil Town LFC progressing through the development team pathway into the first team squad. Whilst working within the Welsh senior game Jamie has continued this theme through developing young talent and offering many opportunities of first team football.

Peter also holds The UEFA A Senior and Youth licenses. He brings much experience having won the development team league with Merthyr Town and working as a YDP Coach at Newport County. Peter’s experience of working with Liverpool International Academy has seen him travel around the world gathering further knowledge on different coaching approaches and methodologies. This experience will only benefit our Academy players further.

The appointment of two UEFA A License coaches in our development team represents a significant development and step forward for our club.

On behalf of the club we would like to thank outgoing Development Team Manager Stevie McCarthy-Campbell for all his hard work and efforts. Stevie has worked incredibly hard since the inception of our academy and we are delighted he will continue as our Head of Youth Development Phase. We also wish Stevie the best of luck in his role as Ely Rangers First Team Manager.
