Coaches

“We have learned over the years how to hold a team together. How to lift some up, how to calm others down, until finally they’ve got one heartbeat, together, a team.”

Our Coaches

ESM employs two full time UEFA B qualified coaches. In addition, our international relationships allow us to benefit from visiting coaches from England and Europe throughout the season.

Adam Clark

is originally from England and holds a UEFA B license (English FA). He has recently been a part of the prestigious Dutch World Football Academy Mentorship programme, where he trained in Amsterdam and Brussels. Ongoing coach development is important to Adam and he believes in pushing himself as hard as he pushes his players.

Claudio Garcia

Claudio has held youth coaching positions in several of Portuguese leading youth academies, as well as with Argentina’s Boca Junior International Academy. He uses his experience as a professional player to both motivate and challenge youth in their football development.
