UK based Golden Jaguars Samuel Cox gets UEFA ‘B’ Licence Coaching honours
Golden Jaguar and Boreham Wood FC defender Samuel Cox, said that he’s happy to have completed his Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) B Licence Coaching course, but his journey has only now begun.
“I’ve been coaching quite a while now down at the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation and Academy (where I started my football education) and it’s something I’ve always taken a keen interest in” Cox told News Room Sports today.
The 25-year-old who made his international debut for Guyana during the FIFA World Cup Qualifier against St Vincent and the Grenadines last year, is the second Guyana national team player to pick up a coaching certification, following Captain Christopher Nurse (United States Soccer Federation ‘B’ Licence).
Cox, who competes in England’s National League, said “by completing my UEFA B Licence course it will allow me to safeguard my future and allow me to progress, develop and evolve as a coach. It has also had a positive effect on my playing career as my understanding of the game is much better”
“Sometimes it’s good to see situations not only through a playing perspective, but also through a coaches perspective” Cox noted.
Cox will make his journey to Guyana later this week, where he will join other members of the National team, as the Golden Jaguars faces Anguilla on March 22 at the National Stadium in the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Caribbean Cup.
“I’m really looking forward to my future in the game and I’m already looking at booking onto my A-Licence course” Cox highlighted.
