Mark Smith

Mark Smith Academy Head of Coaching, Chesterfield FC & Ex Professional Footballer for Sheffield Wednesday FC

I coached with Joe at the Sheffield United Academy, on the walk on and development programmes. Joe was a very enthusiastic and good coach and he had excellent quick feet ability. Joe's coaching gave players an enhanced knowledge of their football game.

I gave Joe the nickname the Legend through his type of quick feet coaching that he passed onto children we coached.

I always found Joe to be very loyal and trustworthy to work with and someone that cared very deeply for the children he coached and worked with.

Darren Coolican

Darren Coolican, U12's Coach - Garforth Rangers

Hi Joe, Just wanted to say thank you once again for all your time and effort with our lads, the boys had an incredible 4 days, and although they were exhausted at the end, they all agreed that they had a great time at Sheffield United Academy and felt very lucky to have had such a great coach!

As for Andy, Steve and myself we could not have been more pleased with your coaching, not only did the boys go home with a much enhanced knowledge of their game, we were able to take note of your excellent sessions and come away with lots of new ideas for our training sessions.

I have attached some photos as a reminder of the Garforth Rangers under 12’s.

Jermain Defoe

Jermaine Defoe, Sunderland AFC, Ex Toronto FC, Ex England & Tottenham Hotspur Football Player

Jermain Defoe, took time to sign shirts and have photos taken with the audience at the Prince's Trust seminar and said on the day; “Creating opportunities for young people is so important at the moment. These youngsters are all making steps to change their lives – it is very inspiring.

I had a great time hearing from the young people and I hope that I offered them all some advice which will help them on their journeys.”

He was particularly inspired by the story of Andy Gibbon who spoke at the event, telling him; “I’m inspired by you.”

Piers Carter

Piers Carter, Prince’s Trust Business Mentor

I have been working with Andy as his mentor for the past 3 years. I found him to be consistently enjoyable to work with. He has worked tirelessly to establish Star Strikers FCA which is now a very credible football coaching business in South Yorkshire. There are always set backs and challenges when setting up a new business and Andy has met these with purpose and motivation. He is professional and committed to delivering a high standard of service to his customers. I have no doubt Star Strikers FCA will go from strength to strength.



Richard Walkden

Richard Walkden, Ecclesfield Comprehensive School, The Deputy Head.

Star Strikers FCA have recently worked at Ecclesfield School in Sheffield with a group of Key Stage 3 and 4 pupils. Star Strikers FCA have worked with 6 students who were presenting challenging behavior. They were identified by Deputy Head teacher (Mr. Richard Walkden) who wanted Star Strikers FCA to work with these students on their leadership skills and to promote them as positive role models. Joe and Andy helped us coach 32 male and female students from the Key Stage 3 over a 6 week period.

The course was a tremendous success in that it helped provide the challenging students with an outlet, it raised their self-esteem and improved attendance. The students found the sessions rewarding and challenging and felt it gave them a role in the school and that they were seen in a positive light by both students and staff. There was a celebration at the end to reward success and this reinforced the positive work done.

It is a course the school is going to run again with Star Strikers FCA.

Star Strikers FCA have had a very positive impact on all of the children they have worked with at Nether Edge Primary; they have increased teacher’s confidence in the delivery of P.E and also developed the talent of children within our school.

Their attitude towards sport and P.E is brilliant which has rubbed off on the children. Star Strikers FCA are fantastic role models and are very positive to all children no matter what their abilities.

They have also developed the skills of talented children inviting them to play with linked Football Clubs and Academies, and also inviting the girls to FA Girls Centre of Excellence.
