    Hi my name is Mark Haley, I am currently booked on to do my coaching badges up to UEFA A eventually, I have done local scouting for SAFC, but have recently moved to Tynemouth.
    What qualifications would you require from me to work towards working within your academy?
    I have experience at coaching 4 local boys teams to a high level of achievement, and was In charge of over a hundred men in the Royal Navy, presenting flight paths to pilots on a daily basis as an air traffic controller.
    I am very personable with excellent communication skills, can deal with children of all ages and parents who can expect a lot from their children and may need to manage expectations.
    Please contact me any time, I’m available to volunteer to show any prospective employer my competency.

    Yours sincerely
    Mark Haley
