TROPHY CABINET
This is an area which is attributed to my achievements in youth soccer. Having only spent 10 years directly connected to the sport I have seen a lot of changes not just in NEW ZEALAND but also in ENGLAND.
I have only ever been involved at youth level to spend more time with my two boys and make sure that they develop and improve their game.
My main aim, as it always has been is to help children improve their ability and get more pleasure and enjoyment from a sport that I love so much - IT IS A PASSION WITH ME!

Club Presentation Day
Presented to me for all my efforts and time offered to FORREST HILL this season.

GRANT MACHIN - DOC Forrest Hill (Oct 2006)

I do wonder what Paul eats for breakfast? It’s certainly more than just three shredded wheats. He has a boundless energy and enthusiasm for football and most importantly providing young players with encouragement and support. Paul has simply been great for our Club. He has taken coaching sessions with a number of different teams, with an honesty, drive and confidence, that has engaged the kids entrusted to him, and also watching parents.

If Paul is coaching your son or daughter, he will always be someone who gives an enormous amount, in terms of time, commitment, passion and in particular care in coaching your child.

I look forward to continuing the excellent relationship Paul has with our Club.

I think you were a very good coach and helped me to play for Aston Villa. 
Steve Cain - Soccer Talk article 
This raises the question as to wheather we are giving the players, especially in the crucial early years, the necessary edge and drive to be truly serious about being as good as they can be in all areas of the game.  Are we encouraging the controlled competitive intensity they need to be winners?
I agree with this articke 100% and Neil Scanlon and I regularly discuss this key factor - call it the missing bit of the puzzel, the missing link! 
Kris Bright - Ex Waitakare, trailing with Gillingham. 
I have been OK since I got here.  It is really competitive though and there are some really tallented players. THERE IS SO MUCH DIFFERENCE TO THE GAME PLAYED IN NZ.  You dont get any time on the ball, so you have got to work on your touch & movement. 
David Mulligan - playing for Doncaster Rovers. 
But playing for New Zealand doesn't necessarily guarantee you a professional contract or even enable you to play football for a living. Being an all White in England means nothing to any club manager, scout, coach or agent, while many clubs nowadays are very reluctant to offer players trials, especially if they are from another country.
