"Doug has been coaching football at Bishop Wordsworth's School from the start of the 2011-12 season. He has provided a comprehensive training programme, as well as preseason training. As a result of his coaching skills, he has made a fundamental difference to the development and success of the sport bringing about a significant improvement in the skill level and tactical ability of the players. The motivation of the players has been inspiring under his guidance".

"The recent success of the 1st XI has improved the profile of football at Bishop's and has led to an increase in the number of boys playing the sport in school. Since Doug has been working with the team we have won the Wiltshire Schools County Trophy two years in a row, as well as the inaugural season of the County League. The team has also had extended runs in the English Schools FA Trophy competition and were runners up in a closely fought South West Schools 6-a-side competition".

"I would highly recommend Doug, not only for his excellent, highly motivational coaching skills, but also for his ability to ensure that players enjoy the game. Doug's coaching provides a holistic, successful approach to sports development building skills, tactics and fitness, as well as the skills of cooperation and team work".
