As a Football Coach, I have become well-known and respected throughout the York area. After training and pIaying over the years i have developed my own unique and effective teaching methods. I focus on getting your body and mind focused on the game and preparing you to compete against the best. 

My Vision is to create a first-class football coaching programme that offers its players the opportunity to train and improve technically and tactically. It is also about young players enhancing their knowledge of the game to develop a mindset for success in a safe and fun environment. 

I feel it is important for the children to have the best football training equipment available to maximise potential.

We work on improving your child's technique at an early age by using some of the best knowledge and training equipment available. The aim is to get more children enjoying the game and bringing through the talent of tomorrow.

DANNY PENROSE

TEKKERS Head Football Coach & Founder

As a Football Coach based in the York area I am truly passionate about the game. I like to give each child the individual guidance they need to reach and exceed their limits. My mission is to influence every footballer, ranging from grassroots to professional, and play a part in their development. In the process in doing so we will install self-belief, confidence, and self-motivation into every player that comes past our eyes. I believe there is more to football than just playing a match every weekend, Football is a way of life. Football has personally taught me so many life lessons, and helped shape me to be the person I am today.
