Founder | Director of Futsal | Tournament Director
Founder of Hornets Futsal and co-founder of Hornets Football Club (UK) Rich has been at the forefront of Futsal development for 15+ years on two continents. Through Hornets Futsal, Rich has helped bring a spotlight to the sport, both as a supplemental development tool for soccer, but also as a stand alone sport with its own culture and unique demands.
"I love the speed and quickness of decision making. I always felt that Futsal was a missing component to my development as a youth player and it's specific focus on speed of play and decision making. Being able to provide an environment to help introduce and also develop players within the sport is a proud thing for me"
Rich is also a key part behind Durham Futsal League, Futsal Innovations, Brookridge Soccer Consultants as well as an active member of the local Chapel Hill & Durham soccer community.
