Allan Smith - Coach Football


To donate to Teams Give a Little fundraising page click here or follow the link to the right.

Allan has worked as a fireman for 35 years.

He loves the outdoors and spends most of summer on or under the water, fishing and diving.

Allan lives with his partner Helen, four cats and two dogs although at the moment we have 9 dogs, as 7 little ones popped out 3 weeks ago.

Allan has been involved with Special Olympics for around 10 years, and is currently the Chairman for Special Olympics Mana club, as well as coach for Football and Basketball. Allan has also been known to jump in the pool and help with swimming as and when required.

Why does he do it? Allan says he does it “for the smiles I get when an athlete completes a drill they have been struggling with or shoots a hoop or puts the ball in the goal. They say smiles are contagious, well they are”.

Allan says he enjoys seeing the growth in the athletes not only in skills but in the building of confidence, knowing that what they thought impossible is in fact possible. The high fives at the end of training. Making them feel important and part of a team (family).

Allan’s goal  has been to grow the club make it a club that people want to join. To provide an environment that allows athletes to thrive make life time friends and to stand proud in there community.
