Anthony Ryan, U14 coach - Liverpool FC
After starting his coaching career from an early age, Anthony Ryan has been involved with Liverpool FC for a number of years.
At the age of 20, while successfully coaching local teams, he began his journey with the Reds through a recruitment role, which would enable him to identify talented youngsters from around the city.
Managing and coaching in the club's development centres was his next step. He was then brought into the Academy to work across various age groups and now leads the U14 team at the Kirkby set-up.
Being a lifelong Liverpool supporter, he describes his role as his dream job and feels part of a great team developing the boys at the Academy.
