Dynamos congratulate Morris after 'A' Licence achievement

Loughborough Dynamo's joint manager Lee Morris has been congratulated by officials at his club and the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League for taking a big step forward in his coaching career.

The 34-year-old former Sheffield United, Derby County and Leicester City striker, pictured, is now a UEFA A licence holder after studying at the Football Association's National Football Centre at St George's Park this season and finally graduating last week.

Morris only has one coaching level higher to aim for now, the UEFA Pro Licence which would enable him to swap managing in First Division South for the Premier League.

Along with fellow joint manager Jason Maguire, Smith succeeded Tommy Brookbanks at the Nanpantan Sports Ground at the end of October and Dynamo's press officer John Bryson says everybody at the Leicestershire club is delighted that their joint manager has earned professional recognition for the progress he's been making.

Bryson said: "All at Loughborough Dynamo send Lee our best wishes for a well earned and deserved qualification."

Since the start of the season, five league coaches have taken advantage of the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League's successful bursary scheme to part-fund 50 per cent of the costs of gaining their FA qualifications and UEFA B licences.

The Evo-Stik NPL's Coaching Development Fund is administered by the league's development officer Mark Ogley. He's also congratulated Morris on his achievement and is hoping his success will encourage more aspiring coaches to take their first steps on football's coaching development ladder.

Ogley said: "It shows once again that there are coaches like Lee who are working to that level and this can only be good for us all as a league. I was delighted to hear about his success and hope it inspires other coaches to do the same and their clubs to support their professional development."

Warrington Town's assistant manager Lee Smith became the fifth coach to benefit from the league's bursary scheme only last month. He followed in the footsteps of Stafford Rangers manager Neil Kitching, Mickleover Sports physio and coach Dave Hoole, Stourbridge's Steve Fellows and Leek Town's Darren Baker who collected their bursary awards over the first half of the campaign.

Like a number of them, Smith was also able to access the bursary scheme retrospectively after actually gaining his UEFA B licence last April.
