This is an insightful reflection of Trevor Morgan’s long coaching journey as well as the challenges he currently faces as Australia's National U17 (Joeys) Coach and National Technical director.
Trevor fell in love with the game in the Blue Mountains with Hazelbrook Hawks. He is the first to admit his senior playing career wasn’t elite, but his early introduction to coaching enabled a long time to grow and develop his coaching skills.
He was influenced by several wonderful Australian Coaches including David Lee and Casey De Bruin (a huge fan of legendary Victorian Coach Lenny McKendry).
Trevor’s coaching journey included 20 years at the famous Westfield Sports High School, an institution that has helped to develop many Matildas and Socceroos.
In addition to talking about Trevor's coaching journey, Gary also detours to the topics of player and coach development in Australia, the challenges of coaching and developing a national team through Covid, and the benefits of helping players develop behaviours like the ‘Best players in the World’.
Trevor speaks openly about the learnings on his journey, the benefits of coach mentors and the changes that have been made in coach education to facilitate coach mentoring. We also discuss the challenges of UEFA not accepting AFC Pro Licences and the impacts and possible solutions.
