Matthew Gray
Academy Manager

I started Academy 59 in 2017, as I believe there to be a lack of top quality football coaching available to grassroots players. I have a passion for football and football coaching, I want to see the local game improve and give players a platform to develop.

I hold UEFA B license and FA Youth Award coaching qualifications. As well as coaching Academy 59, I also work within professional football, working day to day with elite players, and in the Semi-Professional adult game .

This standard of coaching is what I want to make readily available to all grassroots players within the Hull and East Riding area, and to improve the local grassroots game as a whole.
