My name is Leon Webber, as well as being an Fa qualified coach I am a level 3 Personal Trainer. Football has always been something I loved playing but since having my son I found the enjoyment of developing his skills and understanding of the game just as enjoyable. This inticed me to gain my Fa qualifications to better guide him with his passion.
The decision to do my Fa badges came when my son was released after 6 weeks on trail with a professional club. Whilst watching him, I became aware that although my son played for one of the best grass roots teams in our area, his individual skill development had been sacrificed for great team performances. I began coaching my son and his friend, working on developing individual technical ability, confidence and understanding of football and within a few months my son and his friend were signed to professional academies.
Since setting up Futgen i have been taken on as a scout and coach for QPR academy / development centre and look forward to using gained knowledge in coaching and developing young footballers with Futgen Academy.
