Having past student, John Cofie join the coaching team at Moorland has proven to have an immediate impact. Students have warmed to John, his story and the advice he can offer to each of them.
During his first few weeks of term, John’s appointment caused a slight stir amongst local and national media; with several outlets reaching out to discuss this career move for John, having previously played at Burnley and Manchester United. One of these led to a very interesting conversation with BBC radio presenter, Andy Bayes. Andy was kind enough to visit Moorland and conduct a full interview (socially distanced and outdoors) with both John and Charlie, covering a variety of topics from John and his career through to the Academy and some of the training methodology.
Even for those of us at the School who know both John and Charlie the interview gave an interesting insight into areas previously undiscussed. Please see the video above for the edited BBC interview, to hear the unabridged full 30 minute interview for yourself please see the second video above.
