About 442

442 Football Academy

442 Football Academy was formed to give young people a better environment within which they can develop positive attitudes, increased confidence, social skills, and team ethics.

442 will aim to coach and educate its participants in all aspects of the game, improving and maturing them as they progress. All of this will be done in a fun and enthusiastic manner.

442 will offer coaching courses across 4 different age groups, between 2-16 years, at a number of venues located around Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.

Whilst completing his degree, Ian worked at West Suffolk College coaching within their successful football school. His personality, knowledge and demeanour led him to a lecturing job, teaching students various sporting subjects. It was here that he worked with disabled and disaffected students within Minden House at West Suffolk College.

During Ian’s early years of professional football, he gained as much knowledge within coaching as possible, completing the Football Association level 1 & 2 in football coaching.

Ian’s career to date includes playing more than 300 semi-professional and in excess of 250 professional games.

In 2015, he began to plan for his future when he would have to hang up his boots. Thus, with his huge love for the game and having 2 young sons, this is where 442 Football Academy was founded.
