Pro-Licence Coaching – With Clayton Zane

Who is developing your child, and what experience and qualifications do they hold?

Clayton is one of the last players from the region to represent Australia. Inspired by local hero Craig Johnston, Clayton decided at 12 years old that he was going to play football in Europe. Driven with passion, he was helped to the top by many famous local coaches and mentors including; Neville Power, Greg Smith, John Kosmina, Wayne Bailey,Ken Kaiser, Phil Dando, the late and great Bob Mountford, Peter Dewhurst & John Kosmina.

The knowledge and feedback from these relationships are what drives Clayton to develop the next generation of players. At the conclusion of a decorated career cut short by injury, Clayton is now a father of 3 and possesses a CV which includes coaching at Queens Park Rangers and the Newcastle Jets.

InZane football is more than a vehicle to develop Eilte players, it is a program for everyone.
