Wayne was so understanding and knowledgeable, but what impressed me the most was the manner in which he formed such an early positive relationship with Saul.
Wayne has genuine likeability factors anyway, but he is not merely a very effective listener and fitness/ conditioning coach, he breeds confidence in his client in a way I have never witnessed elsewhere.
In our opinion, Richardson Sport seems to have filled a vital gap in the academy system.
Problems with conditioning, fitness, running styles and the like are noted by academies, but not rectified.
This possibly results in many talented footballers being released. Wayne and his team are the plug in this gap.
We were first referred to Wayne by BWFC as they have had previous players who trained with Richardson Sport and value the coaching given very highly. Wayne is not only a coach to Fin but also a friend and a mentor who has offered Fin guidance with his football, school and personal life.
Since working with Wayne, we have seen massive improvements in Finlay’s football, his athletic ability and his strength but more importantly his confidence and his attitude both to sport and general life. I would recommend Wayne to anyone and feel as though Bolton putting us in touch with Wayne is the best thing that could’ve happened to Fin.
Thanks for everything you have done Wayne we look forward to continuing Finlay’s journey with you.
Luke joined Burnley Football club in August 2012 at the age of 10. Luke was doing extremely well but in order to raise the bar higher and add an extra dimension to his game we decided to invest in some training sessions with Wayne. Wayne had been recommended to us by coaches at the club.
In 2013 we went for our initial consultation and Wayne made us all feel welcome and we instantly felt at ease. The facility at Manchester Sport City was second to none and the work ethic of the young athletes within the complex was inspirational to Luke. As a family we discussed Luke’s strengths and areas for improvement and Wayne devised a bespoke programme to stretch him and improve his overall game.
As a result Luke has become quicker,more technical and physically stronger. He naturally applies his new skills to his game and has continued to make excellent progress. In March 2014 Luke signed for Wolverhampton Wanders Football Academy and is now enjoying category 1 Football.
He has just been selected to represent the club in an International Football Tournament with the year above due to his ability.
Wayne has without a doubt improved Luke as an athlete. Luke always enjoys his sessions and Wayne will adapt his sessions due to the amount of activity Luke has done in a week.
We are all really pleased with his progress.
Thank you Wayne!!

Our Championship, Premier and League 1 package includes the support detailed below:
Sports Mentoring of the athlete or parent – talking about and working through any concerns about the athletes progress outside of the physical training sessions is a huge part of what we do as part of our service.
Having access to a mentor who has a deep understanding of the athlete’s journey plays a pivotal part in enabling the athlete to reach their desired goal.
We might not be able to talk straight after the session and may ask you to book a telephone or face to face consultation.
Game attendance – during the season, we’ll get out to watch you in games so we can see first-hand how our coaching is translating on the pitch. Once fixtures are known, please send them over to us, and we’ll put plans in place to be at some of your game.

SESSION USE & ADDITIONAL COSTS

I’ve posed the following question to a number of athletes recently; “If there are 168 hours in a week, what will make the bigger difference, the one or two hours you spend here training for athletic development, or the other 166 hours?”. It’s to highlight the point...
