Apprentice Leon Attends Season Launch

Foundation coaching apprentice, Leon O’Brien was invited to Notts County Football Club to represent Stevenage FC at the official EFL Season Launch.

Leon was joined by fellow community ambassadors, players and managers including Stoke City boss Gary Rowett, Notts County manager Kevin Nolan and Barnsley forward Jacob Brown.

Leon is a former National Citizen Service participant who has progressed onto a coaching apprenticeship with the Foundation and is about to start his second year with the club. The day was a great way to round off a fantastic year as Leon has achieved so much including being selected for the regional NCS youth board as well as completing his FA Level 1 coaching certificate.

Always the optimist, Leon was one of many interviewed on the day and was quick to note his prediction of a Stevenage promotion push this season.
