Pete expanded on his appointment:
I am excited to be announced as the 2023 Technical Director for TUFC. The club has a long and proud history of producing successful teams and developing a constant pool of talented footballers. From the great work of Troy and Richard over the years, TUFC created a GT A Grade program that provides players with a real development pathway in their football journeys.
I am delighted to have the opportunity to help take this program further, as we look to build on the previous successes.
Personally I am very passionate about youth development as I get to work with the future stars of tomorrow. The importance of having ‘good coaching and mentors’ at keys stages of your football development often is the difference in players becoming successful or even continuing to play the sport in later life.
I will bring my passion, experience and knowledge to the TUFC GT A Grade program and help coaches and players get the best out of their football, both on and off the field.
