He also worked with Sligo Rovers FC, where he was part of national league and cup winning backroom teams that also competed in Champions League and Europa League qualifiers.

As a keen martial artist, Kevin has earned his black belt and has won national and international championships as well as sports scholarships in the UK and in Ireland. “I enjoyed the technical and tactical aspect of training, but I also enjoyed the physical and mental preparation. I incorporated HIIT training, running, sprinting, and weightlifting to increase my explosiveness and endurance. I’ve had my share of injuries and this is where I had my first insight into injury rehabilitation and how it impacts a safe return to training as well as improving performance.”
