Jack Walton

Visiting Fellow

Health, Science and Wellbeing

I graduated from Loughborough University in 2005 after completing a degree in Sports Science and Physics. After three summers coaching across the USA I joined the County FA network as a Girls and Women’s Development Officer on the Isle of Man before moving to join the football development team in Liverpool.

I joined the FA as a Regional Coach Development Manager in 2011 and have since been involved in the recent changes to The FA Coach Education pathway. I now lead a team of FA County Coach Developers in the North West and in my spare time volunteer on the committee at a grassroots club whilst coaching a youth boys team.
