Ep. 52- Managing, with Simon Parker, First Team Manager of the Southampton Women’s Football Club

January 2, 2018

Episode 52 marks the end of the first year of the podcast. 52 weeks, 52 episodes, more than 60 guests and countless hours of audio. It’s been a fantastic experience for more than one reason. Thank you to everyone who has supported in one way or another. This wouldn’t be anything without you.


For episode 52 I am away with family. This episode was recorded a few weeks ago with Simon Parker, head coach of the Southampton Women’s Football Club. We talk about Simon’s journey to being the manager, his philosophy on managing the club, the struggles associated with earning promotion in two straight season and fighting for the league lead, and we take some questions from his players (which he didn’t know was happening). I hope you enjoy the chat, and I look forward to speaking with you all again in the new year.


A Special thanks to Simon Parker for giving me his time, and to the club for allowing me access to their players and coaches this season. You can follow Simon on Twitter @1swparker. Give him some encouragement as he leads the club into battle each week.
