DAVID IRVING, TULSA ROUGHNECKS, USL (2015-2018) – DIRECTOR OF SOCCER
Tom Taylor and PSC have provided the players with excellent coaching and leadership for 2 seasons in the United Soccer Leagues and played a key role during our inaugural season getting the franchise off the ground and running. He was responsible for the day to day training of the first team training sessions during the week and assisted me on game day with the management of the side for all league and cup games. Trainings were always well organized, enjoyable and had a specific theme to the session and he was well received by the players. The first season was definitely the most memorable with some excellent away wins at the Seattle Sounders, Orange County SC and Austin Aztex narrowly missing out on the playoffs by 1 point. As well as coaching the professional players and helping them develop, Tom assisted in the running of a number of our tryout events and youth clinics giving back to the local community and offering them the chance to learn and develop new skills. Having known Tom for a number of years now and working with him in over 100 games at USL clubs such as the Wilmington Hammerheads and Tulsa Roughnecks then I am happy to recommend his services as coach and person at the professional and youth levels.
CHRIS GILCHRIST, PSC PORTUGAL 2017 TOUR PLAYER
I wanted to thank you for the amazing experience I had while working with you in Portugal and Spain. It was truly an amazing learning experience that I will be forever grateful for.I learned a tremendous amount more about the game while training, and during our matches. Something that I would never have experienced here in Canada.
