Head of Football
Football at CHS benefits from a full time professional coach, Damien Allen who has played football since the age of seven for Manchester United. Since then he has played 300 first team matches for various clubs and has also played in the Europa League. Mr. Allen is a UEFA A- License and A- license Youth holder. We also have additional experts who hold UEFA B licenses and UEFA level 2 licenses as part of the full time Football staff.
As a whole CHS Football teams play 250 Fixtures per year with students playing 15- 30 games for their CHS team in one season. On Saturdays in the spring term CHS teams play block fixtures against strong opposition. Students have an amazing match day experience with video analysis before matches, use of top class facilities, pre match warm ups and food after games. We have a competitive fixture list which challenges our students and have an impressive record in ISFA & ESFA national cup competitions and regional area leagues/cups.
