1. KIRK HILTON

ACADEMY DIRECTOR

Ex-Manchester United player and UEFA licensed coach Kirk Hilton came through the most successful club academy in the world. With the likes of Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, David Beckham and the Neville brothers, he was a part of the famed Manchester United production line that produced the most dazzling array of talent.

After signing a professional contract at the club, manager Sir Alex Ferguson loaned Kirk out to Royal Antwerp for a season to gain league experience, where he played a massive part in their success. Kirk returned to the UK when an injury ended his budding Manchester United career, however he went onto play in a successful Blackpool team. Although learning from a huge variety of top managers and coaches he was unfortunately plagued by serious injury and eventually forced to retire in his prime.

Kirk’s love for the game endured and coaching became his prime focus, passing on his own experience and also methods from some of the best coaches of one of the most successful clubs in our time.

Suggested change: Kirk Hilton is a UEFA licensed coach who was a part of the famed Manchester United production line that produced the most dazzling array of talent in the world, such as Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, David Beckham and the Neville brothers.
