“ Jess first introduced himself to me in 2013 in Mexico.  He was scouting for Chelsea at the time and I was happy to show my abilities to him.  Jess then invited me to New Zealand and the Wellington Phoenix before I signed for Pachuca back in Mexico.  Jess is an outstanding professional coach he has helped and guided me and my family so much and I will be forever thankful to him. ”

“ I’ve known Jess since 2011 when he coached me as the High Performance Coach in New Zealand. He is very professional and experienced in player development and I have no doubt I improved a tremendous amount under him. I then progressed to signing with Olympique Marseille and I feel Jess played a major part in this.”

“ I've known Jess for a number of years now since i was released by Norwich City at the age of 14.  Jess quickly recruited me into King's Lynn FC and this was exactly what I needed, somebody who believed in me.  Jess encourage me to go the US to play college soccer as he knew just how much my game could grow in the US.  I'm hugely grateful to Jess and his guidance and mentorship over the years. ”

“ The foundations Jess instilled in me proved influential in my step into the first team at the Wellington Phoenix as I felt both prepared and comfortable in the more intense setting. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute with Jess as my coach and feel lucky to have had to opportunity to be coached by him. Without him, I feel I would never have had the experiences I have and hope many others get the same opportunities.”
