About us

Colin Reid

Reid Football Development was established in 1990 by Colin Reid. It currently organises many Soccer Schools and Academies to improve the playing standard of young players, as well as the FA and 1st4Sport Coaching Awards, with the aim of producing and developing quality coaches to further the game of football.


As one of only a handful of private organisations to gain this status in the UK, Reid Football Development takes its role in the development of football coaching seriously. We currently offer a wide variety of courses, from basic coaching levels (Level 1) to the prestigious UEFA Part 'B' Coaching Award (Level 3). We are an Accredited FA Child Protection Workshop Organisation and are also able to deliver the FA Emergency Aid course and the FA/1st4Sport Treatment and Management of Injury in Sport (Level 2 and Level 3 - Football). 


Relationships have been formed with a number of partner organisations, including several County FA areas, football leagues across the UK at many different levels, as well as professional and senior non league football clubs and Colleges of Further Education including the very successful football academy scheme at Thurrock and Basildon College.


Colin and his team have coached many of today's leading players including England's Full Internationals Peter Crouch, Ledley King, Jermain Defoe (Tottenham Hotspur), Glenn Johnson (Liverpool), Scott Parker (West Ham), Kieran Richardson (Sunderland) and Nicky Shorey (Aston Villa); along with many others including current England Under 21's Mark Noble, James Tomkins (West Ham) and Michael Kightly (Wolverhampton Wanderers).
