Soccer club hires former Arsenal coach

The West Coast Auto Group Football Club (WCAGFC) has a new coach with the Whitecaps and Gunners on his resume.

Adam Day is the new director of coach development, and will also take over as head coach of the club’s micro program. He will oversee the development of the club’s coaching staff.

Day’s vast experience includes playing and coaching in England, the U.S., Canada and Greece. He recently returned to Vancouver, having worked for English Premier League team Arsenal FC. Prior clubs  include the Vancouver Whitecaps and Charlton Athletic. He has a degree in physical education, is a certified trainer, and a holder of the prestigious UEFA A coaching licence.

“Adam is a fantastic addition to our staff,” said Chris Begg, president of the WCAGFC, in a press release.

“Providing all club coaches with a program that will advance their own technical training will ultimately provide a direct benefit to all of our playing members. Our coaches will have even more tools to help each player to develop to their maximum potential.”
