Your coach: Jack Royston


I played youth football for Braintree Town and Dartford FC before completing a soccer scholarship in America. I played in the American college system and also for a club in the USL League Two before returning to Europe to play for Europa Point FC in the Gibraltar Premier League. I play as a centre midfielder and consider myself a technical player, with passing being my strongest attribute.

My experience includes starting out coaching at football camps during school holidays when I was 16. I then volunteered with numerous teams in America, with training and matches. I also spent time working with a youth club in Spain and was able to learn the different coaching philosophies and styles used in different countries.

I have coached on a 121 basis for a few years and enjoy over coming the weaknesses of players and enhancing their strengths, by focusing on their fundamental skills and improving their technical proficiency. I like to help players to find answers for themselves and make the sessions match-specific.



What’s great about 121 coaching with Premier Skills Academy


Developing individual skills is too often overlooked in team training, where the focus is mainly on team results.

Knowing what to look for and how to over come any issues players may face is a sign of a great coach.

We have over 22 years of football training and coaching experience, working with both amateur and professional players. We’re perfectly placed to progress beginners, aspiring youth academy players and adults, by focusing on individual skill improvement across their attacking, defending or midfield game.
