Meet The Team


Trishan Patel

Trishan is the Director and Head Coach at TPC. A qualified UEFA B licensed football coach working towards his A Licence. He has also obtained a FA Youth Award, FA Mentor Award and a BA (Hons) Applied Education Studies degree. His aim? To improve clients lives physically, technically, emotionally and mentally through football. He is a huge mental health advocate having tragically lost his father and his hero in 2016 to suicide. This changed his whole coaching and life outlook. Trishan prides himself on having a reputation as a fantastic coach, mentor and role model for young people.

The knowledge and experience acquired from having worked within the industry for a significant amount of years has allowed him to develop a strong expertise in coaching, teaching and mentoring in Football, PE and Sport. Trishan’s work has allowed him to work both nationally and internationally, having coached football in the USA, Hungary, Norway, Finland and Sweden as well as for two professional English clubs (Premier League team, Liverpool FC and League Two team, Luton Town FC). The invaluable experiences of working in a professional club environment both home and away has enabled him to harness differing coaching techniques as well as enhance my already proven skills, knowledge whilst further adding to his growing reputation as a coach.

Aside from his qualifications and experience, Trishan has a real passion for what he does. He has created a special schools programme ‘GOALS’.  There are football (and cricket) intervention programmes to serve students who need help with behaviour, social skills and leadership.

Football, PE and Sport has been a part of his life for a long time and he provides a first-class service to all clients. What sets him apart from other football coaches? His attention to detail when working with clients; being able to decipher their needs promptly and efficiently so that they have the very best football experience.

Trishan is currently the Assistant Manager of step 5 side Biggleswade United.
