About me: I am married with two children. I am ‘living the dream’ by coaching football full-time. In my spare time I enjoy renovating my house, and spending time with my two boys.
Shane the coach: I started coaching in 2001 whilst living in Shropshire. I coached for Shrewsbury Town FC Centre of Excellence and Football in the Community, and various other sports organisations. To gain experience I spent many hours observing senior level coaches at West Bromwich Albion FC and Liverpool Academy. I have many qualifications in Football. I moved to Llandudno in February 2003, and started coaching in September of that year running an after school club and Saturday morning sessions. Since then, we now run more after school clubs, more community coaching, school holiday camp coaching and we have coached many junior clubs throughout the Conwy County. At senior level I have coached/managed for Llandudno Town FC, Llandudno Junction FC, Denbigh Town, Colwyn Bay Ladies and Bethesda Athletic FC. I was also North Wales Coast Manager for the very successful Under 15’s and Under 18’s, and the North Wales Coast Girls Under 13’s and 16’s.

Shane the player: I started playing football aged 11, where I played for CoD Donnington Under 12’s. I played in all positions and eventually found my best position to be Centre midfield, where I excelled and won many trophies. I played for several teams within Shropshire, the highlight being playing for Newport Town FC, in the West Midlands League, against teams who are now in the Bluesquare Conference League. I was regularly captain, and was a vocal leader on and off the field. As a centre midfielder, I was a tough tackling bull-terrier, as my team mates called me. I stopped playing in June 1999, due to an injury.
