Kyle Awarded UEFA Pro Licence

20 June 2016

First-Team Coach Obtains Qualification

First-team coach Richie Kyle has been awarded the prestigious UEFA Pro Licence by the English FA.

The 31-year-old, who obtained his UEFA A Licence back in 2012, graduated at the England National Football Centre, St George's Park, last month. 

He now becomes one of the youngest English coaches in the game to hold the UEFA Pro Licence, which is the highest award available to football coaches and a mandatory requirement for all first-team managers who wish to work in the Premier League.

Kyle joined Blackpool in July 2013 and guided the club's youth team to the North West Youth Alliance league title in his first season at Bloomfield Road.
