Head Of Football

Name: Dave Lawrence

Job Title: Head of Football

Current Level of Coaching: Advanced Youth Award, UEFA B and MSc in Sports Coaching ongoing.

Interesting fact: Work full time for West Brom FC, now wearing a 'Wolves' top, supports the Villa..!

 Background: Dave has been coaching for the best part of 2 decades, across Community football, disability football, Women's and Girls game, College football and internationally. He also spent 3 years working under top coaches in the WBA Academy, with players like Rekeem Harper, Louie Barry and Morgan Rogers.  After spending a year working in League football for Stevenage Borough FC,  he moved to WBA in 2005 and has been there ever since, supporting coaches and developing players of all ages and abilities. Dave also works as an FA tutor and Coach Mentor.

 He sees himself as a 'developer' of talent, and as much as winning is important, he prides himself on helping and guiding players to reach their true potential.

 Quote from DL:  I joined the Wolfpack in December 2019, which was a difficult time to come in; the seasons were under way, teams were almost established and a certain culture in the groups had set in.  I am now fully focussed on a new season where winning and development will provide players with an opportunity to share fantastic experiences on and off the pitch, and all staff and students from the University of Wolverhampton will be proud of their football team.  As Head of Football, I am committed to guide anyone involved in the sport in their journey, and look forward to having conversations banter with anyone who cares for the game as much as I do!  Here is to an incredible season for our Wolves Uni Football Teams...
