Evolution Ambassadors

Michael Nelson - Barnet F.C.

"Being from the North East and Gateshead myself, I am extremely passionate about the work Evolution are providing within their  Academies especially at Kingsmeadow Football Academy. 

The fact they deliver a structured, professional coaching curriculum on a weekly basis to the Academy players, shows the level of detail they are providing the young players with"


Jonathon Douglas - Ipswich Town

"I think what Evolution offer to young players is a great opportunity for whose who may not get noticed by professional academies, to put themselves in the shop window.

Bridging the gap between grassroots football and academy football could prove to be a big success in the coming years.

Plenty of players get missed within grassroots football and it looks live Evolution have found the answer to reducing that number"

Gary Harkins - Greenock Morton

"After playing with Ross for a number of years at Blackburn Rovers, it was instantly evident his attention to detail within training and matchdays, even as a player at a young age. It was unfortunate he had to retire at such a young age, but on the other hand great to see his level of commitment and attention to detail in improving not only himself as a coach and the players he coaches has remained and no doubt grows in the coming years"

Jill Scott - Manchester City

"I've worked on coaching days now for a number of years with Evolution. I love what they provide to young players in terms of the opportunity to develop, not only on the pitch but off the pitch, providing them with the skills and knowledge to become creative players themselves. The fact that they offer their expertise to both boys and girls is a positive"


Adam Campbell - Morecambe

"After growing up in the North East and working my way through the Newcastle United youth system into the first team, football back home is a big passion of mine. I believe what Evolution offer to young players in the North East can be invaluable in the coming years. Ive been extremely impressed with the professional delivery of coaching within the Kingsmeadow Academy"

Peter Leven - Kilmarnock F.C.

"After working as a coach with Evolution a few years back. Its been great to see their development as a coaching company grow dramatically. The drive and passion of Gary Smith and the team he's built around him has shown real progression. I truly believe their coaching principles to create technically gifted players who feel comfortable on the ball is the way forward for Evolution"
