The tournament is in its 10th year and includes teams from Italy, New Zealand, Australia, Scotland and Thailand and will take place between the 1st and 6th of June. England are the current holders, so Andy and his team have a lot to live up to.
Andy commented: “It’s such a great opportunity for me to represent my country and promote the game on a world wide scale. Along with playing the games we will also get the chance to coach local underprivileged kids which will be a real privilege.”
Andy is due to graduate from Hull University with his PGCE teaching qualification after two years of part time study which is a great achievement. Andy also works within the Youth Department as the Head Goalkeeping coach alongside his day job as Futsal Coordinator with Rotherham United Community Sports Trust.
Mark Wilkinson – Education Manager said, “I am really pleased with Andy’s progress since he made the decision to come out of the professional game and become a teacher. It’s not an easy transition but with hard work and determination Andy has balanced his studies with his day to day responsibilities with real professionalism. With the assistants from the Professional Football Association and the Community Sports Trust Andy has shown he has the skills and determination to build a successful career in teaching.”
