My name is Paulo Pinto an I am the U11’s Manager otherwise known as “The Dragons”. I am engaged to Sandra with two children one of whom plays for Crewe Town FC. I volunteered to become a Football Manager because of my passion to Football, Since an early age I was interested in Football but unfortunately my playing career never really took off. To me this sport is the best ever invented because it brings so many people of all ages, ability and walks of life together. To be managing my own Football side is the best thing to happen to me, I currently work full time for Bargain Booze but given the opportunity I would Coach full time such is my passion. I was very happy to be chosen to be a part of this great Football Club where all children get the chance to enjoy football, learn new skills, gain confidence within a team environment, build their strength and improve their performance. I am very proud to be a Manager at Crewe Town FC, a club with family at its heart, allowing children the opportunity to pursue their dreams of becoming a footballer. I recently became a L1 FA Accredited Coach. Thankyou for giving me the opportunity to be a part of that.
My name is Jeff Power and I am the Asst Manager of the U11’s team working with Paulo Pinto. I also gladly accepted the offer to join the Committee of the Club and I am the Team Liason that gives a voice from the parents to the Committee. I am married to Marina and we have two children Alfie and Archie who both play for the Club. I work for a firm who provide billing software to the telecoms industry, as Head of Service Delivery. This means I am responsible for the levels of customer service or corporate clients receive. Football has always played a big part in my life/family and I played as soon as I could walk. It didn’t matter that I was not good enough to play professionally because I played for enjoyment, along with a desire to improve myself and still do. Through this passion I have made life long friends, over come confidence issues when I was younger, kept fit, bonded with my father, understood team work, the at of compromise, when to push hard and seen rewards pay off. I hope that my children and others at this club get as much out of the game as I did. I joined Pintos team because I wanted to help kids build their confidence, encourage them to take chances and not worry about making mistakes. I want them to see football as a sport where you win and lose together and its not all about the individual. Everyone plays their part, has different responsibilities and enjoys it. I am very proud to be a part of this club and appreciate the responsibility that comes with it, I hope in a small way I can help.
My name is Rich Douglas and I am the U11’s Manager, otherwise kn own as “The Terriers”. I am married to Jenny and we have two children William and Penny who are both football mad! I have been helping run the Terriers for the last two seasons under Primary Stars and really enjoyed it. Due to us wanting to grow as a team and further my coaching abilities, I approached Crewe Town FC and asked if we could join them, both Mark Owen and Mark Vodrey readily agreed! This is a wonderful club and already we feel part of the family that is Crewe Town FC. there is a great team spirit within the club and I am looking forward to been a part of it and watching it expand and grow even more. I myself have played football all my life and will encourage others to do so…it’s not about what level you play at, it’s about playing with a smile on your face. My Son William, nephew Nicky and all the other lads in The Terriers are really close friends and so have a fantastic bond and the whole team is enjoying the values of team work, loyalty and respect. The future is The Yellow Army!! I gained my FA L1 Coaching Award this year and am looking forward to taking that experience further when coaching the Terriers.
I am Dean Hughes, I am married to Sarah and we have three amazing boys who are all football mad like their Dad! My middle boy James plays for The Terriers in goal. My youngest boy now plays for the Ninjas and enjoys been part of the Crewe Town FC family. I am the Assistant Manager of the Terriers and I feel very priveleged to coach this amazing team of young talented hard working players who are always eager to learn every week. I was asked by Mark Owen to also take up the Goalkeeping Coaching position which I gladly accepted and have been doing so for the last 6 months. I have always been involved in football from playing and now coaching and its a passion that won’t go away. Joining Crewe Town FC last year was the best move we made as a team because we have been made to feel very welcome and the feeling around the Club is always positive and that’s down to the hard working Committee.
