About Paul Hughes:

Paul Hughes played for Chelsea between 1994 and 2000. With Ted Dale as Youth Team Coach, he came through with John Terry, John Harley, Jody Morris, Michael Duberry, Muzzy Izzet, Neil Clement and Neil Shipperley. He was then a pro alongside Desailly, Di Matteo, Gullit, Mark Hughes, Leboeuf, Petrescu, Poyet, Vialli and Zola, Following his time at Chelsea, he was at Southampton and finished his 12 year professional career with five years at Luton Town.

Whilst at Chelsea, he played under Glenn Hoddle, Ruud Gullit and Gianluca Vialli, where he was influenced by their coaching methods and subsequently integrated them into his own management/coaching. He is a successful non-league manager, having guided his team to three successive promotions into the Evo-Stick Southern League Premier Division.

Working with players in the social corner through understanding the person and building strong resilient characters are key elements for Paul. He is a qualified corporate coach and life coach and this crossover of skills forms an imperative part of Paul's managerial approach to football.

About the session:

Through both his introduction and his practical session, Paul will cover two areas:

1. To help give coaches even more insight into makes a successful session, what professional players enjoy most about sessions – notably for them to be game related (SSG etc), competitive and constantly challenging

2. How he was influenced as a professional player by Glenn Hoddle, Ruud Gullit and Gianluca Vialli’s coaching methods and how he has integrated this into his non-league management/coaching.

Paul will also talk about ‘working with players in the social corner through understanding the person and building strong resilient characters’. We hope this will prove to be a worthwhile bonus for attending coaches personal development.

This session is open for all members of the Surrey Football Coaches Association to attend.
