Russell started helping out at Falcons in 2015 when his son, who was then not quite 6, joined the club. He began just helping set up goals and lay out cones as an interested parent, then as the weeks passed he began to get more involved in the training sessions. Russell attained his FA level 1 coaching qualification in 2016, then his FA level 1 Futsal qualification in 2017 through the support of the club.  The Clarets have evolved over the last 4 years and they have seen many smiling faces come and go.  The 2018/19 season was one of the best yet and the group of Clarets Russell has now is a very good group of friends and they are a fantastic team to coach. Russells football ‘ethos’ would be to let the players have fun and express themselves and win, lose or draw it doesn’t matter as long as they have tried their best. Russell feels he enjoys being part of the Falcons ‘family’ and find it very rewarding.
