André Belchior
SMP Team you are most involved with?

Younger kids – 6 to 9.


Aside from SMP what team do you support?

Cristiano Ronaldo.

How did you get involved with SMP?

Friends from school telling me about SMP then me joining the team, then I started to volunteer after my team stopped playing.


What’s your greatest memory or achievement with SMP?

Winning a tournament at Fulham in the penalty shootout (U14 I think).


Give us a piece of coaching advice or tip?

Patience is key, and (with the younger kids), having fun goes hand in hand with development as they’ll be more enthusiastic to play.
