QUALIFICATION
Terry has worked for E-Sports for nine years, having started his career with the company as a community school soccer coach. Recognising E-Sports potential to develop, Terry has implemented and developed E-Sports Tots football, girls football, the football academy and the elite programme.

Terry became a member of the management team in 2006, taking on the responsibility for the delivery of the E-Sports soccer programme and advancing the football science, philosophy and the pathways offered to every child that participates. E-Sports now teaches soccer to hundreds of school kids, 500 club players, 150 tots and a number of elite squads. The reward for this success has been the opportunity to offer a pathway for elite players to play in UAE FA youth leagues.

Terry, a former professional footballer with Aberdeen Football Club in Scotland, progressed through their youth system as team captain, winning the Scottish Youth Cup at Hampden Park and beating Celtic Football Club 2-0 in the final. Terry now leads a team of 20 members of staff, all coaches being UEFA license qualified. His main goals over the next five years are to increase the reach of E-Sports and continue to provide a platform in the Middle East for expat children to develop and compete at a high level.
