V9 are delighted to announce the recruitment of the full time professional coaches who will oversee the 5 day programme from 5th June to 9th June at the Etihad complex. Alan Stubbs and John Doolan are a management team who experienced great success at Hibernian FC in Scotland, winning the 2016 Scottish Cup. Chris Ramsey and Simon Ireland are another duo with impressive footballing pedigree. Chris has coached at the highest level including a stint as manager of QPR and was appointed Technical Director in 2016 whilst Simon is currently Head of Coaching and Coach Education at Loftus Road. Former Scotland International Robbie Stockade is developing an excellent reputation at Sunderland where he is the First Team coach and Travis Binnion is Head of Coaching and Academy Manager at Sheffield United where he has been pivotal in the progress of their successful under 21 and under 18 teams. Finally the vastly experienced David Coles, once goalkeeping coach at Southampton and now at Bristol City will be putting the three V9 goalkeepers through their paces. As well as these professional coaches V9 will also be recruiting four coaches from non-league to ensure opportunities for those involved in non-league does not just stop at the players.
