Clitheroe Wolves are very pleased to announce Lee Fielden as the new Head of Youth Development and Coaching. Lee is a UEFA B qualified coach with years of experience coaching at all ages. Lee is already part of our already successful 16-18 team of coaches including Martin Aspinwall, Neil Hitchen and Gary Buchanan but will also take on the Role of Youth Development and Head of Coaching. He will work closely with the Age Groups 12-16 to support and provide guidance alongside recruiting for the Youth teams at 16-18.
Chairman Ross Hibbert said ” Lee has been part of Wolves for a few years now and has always impressed the Committee with his commitment and coaching ability. The term Youth Development is taken lightly by some clubs but to me we have the perfect base in Wolves of over 700 players and Lees role is to provide support and guidance to the coaches at the older ages and also prepare the players for Youth and Adult football. He has a knowledge of the players coming through into the 16s now and is keen to develop knowledge of the players in the younger ages to make the step up in the years to come”
Ross added ” We have to create our own pathway for the players in the club for them to play for as long as possible. It is looking likely that Adult football will be coming to Wolves soon so this seems the perfect time to plan for the future. Both Lee and I are excited for the future and look forward to working together alongside Neil, Martin and Gary to make this all a success”
Lee added “ I’m excited to use my experience to support our coaches and help them put on sessions that the players will thrive in to help us give the best football experience to our players “
