A SOLIHULL sports coach has created a website which he believes could revolutionise amateur and children’s football.

Darren Swann, who has coached local side Leafield Athletic U8s for over a year, says he came up with the idea after hearing complaints from local parents.

“I was absolutely amazed to see how many football teams need players and struggle to find them!” said Darred, aged 40. This led him to set up - with the help of a pal - the website - ‘wanttoplayfootball.co.uk’.

“I hope it allows the football community to come together,” said the coach, pictured right.
