Welcome to 2010s Head Coach – Chris Sim

Spartans Youth are delighted to welcome Chris Sim as the 2010s Head Coach… so we asked him for a pen portrait!

I was previously tchris9he Head Coach of the 2005’s and assistant head coach of the 1999’s at Polbeth Community Football Club where I worked with the club for four years. I have a passion for football and developing youngsters and recently completed my Children’s award and would love to go on and complete my advanced children’s licence as well as starting on the main pathway and aiming toward my C licence.

As well as Spartans I coach walking age to 5 year old children at Edinburgh University on a Sunday morning which I have been doing for a year. I had a short career as a central defender for various amateur teams in West Lothian where I was also club captain however retired due to injuries!!

I am a season ticket holder at Hearts and have been for 12 years. I love nothing more than a Scottish Cup win or a victory over Hibs!!!!! (Bad timing that one)

I am married and have an 18 month old daughter.  I have recently taken up running, last year completing the Edinburgh 10k and the half marathon. My full time job is as an IT Analyst at a major bank where I have worked for five years however I hope one day to coach full time.
