Anton Wallace is FBB’s first ever apprentice and is just starting out on his journey with us. Here are a few questions to get to know the 19 year old coach:
What were your first impressions of FBB?
Everyone seemed like they were part of a family and it felt like the staff had known each other for years. I thought it was a really nice place for me to become a part of as I know it’s rare to get such a good bond between people in a working environment
What does FBB mean to you?
FBB to me means family, because everyone has each other’s backs and we all help one another both in and outside the office. We’re a family that love the game and have a passion for helping young people develop in life
What’s your earliest footballing memory?
Being 8 years old and playing football for a Sunday league team called Aztec F.C
If you could play for any team, which would it be?
I’m an Arsenal fan, say no more!
Describe your ideal Sunday
Going to church in the morning, then having the biggest Sunday dinner watching football or Netflix
Which footballer do you most admire and why?
I most admire Thierry Henry. He scored so many goals in his career from the left side of the pitch, slotting the ball with his right foot. The keepers would know it was coming, but he was unstoppable anyway!
How would you describe your coaching style?
My coaching style is very energetic. I like players to jog to every drill, and I always want players on their toes treating the session like a game situation. I believe it’s really important to get that game feeling across in training, in order to see improvement on the pitch
