Who I Am
My name is Jason Kavanagh I come from Dublin Ireland. Ever since I was a kid I always wanted to be a professional football Player. Now I had my chances got trials wilt Barnsley when I was 15, but did not work out when I was at the trails I twisted my knee and that was that over before it even started. I kept on trying to make it and when I was 16 got another chance when Hull asked me over, I went over and got asked to come back in two weeks for a week trial. So when I did all that the answer was no. simple because I was too small to be a defender. So when I got back home I thought to myself Fuck it. And that was me done with football before it even started.
When I turned 18 I finished school and thought about going to collage but it never happened I kept saying I go next year and yeah you know yourself every year was the same. Now 21 I have been doing my coaching badges and have them all done. I got work experience with a club called Longford town for two weeks just to see how they run things. After seeing what they did I knew I wanted to become a manager. And no one can tell me I am two fucking small.
Another year gone by and I am a manager now of Oatfield F.C it’s a local club with a under 21 side but now under 13 side so that’s what I did I went to the Committee and I asked them if I could put it together and they said yes. So 3 years later I am still doing it the team now all under 16 and some of the players going to the under 21 team. We have one the league twice and the cup once. Are best achievement was beating under 15 Celtic in a friendly 3-1 I was so proud of the team lost two players that game who went to Celtic.
So I am sitting in the pub I get a phone call from the committee of Oatfield asking me to meet me tomorrow at 9, I can’t do that am sorry am out having a few tonight can 11 do. So we agree on 11 tomorrow morning. As the night start I am twisted drunk can’t stand up straight. I get a taxi home and hit the floor as soon as I walk in. my alarm goes off at 10, so I am in the shower and away I go. Hi Jason we called you hear to say what a job you have done with the younger players but we a new manager need for the senior team would you do it. Yes of course, that’s great.
So I am the new manager of the senior team and in my first season we came 2nd in the league and made it all the way to the semi-finals in the Milk Cup. That was great I am 25 years old and I am a manager but I want bigger things. The next season was better than my first we won the league for the 1st time in 9 years and again we made it to the Milk Cup but it was the semi Finals again were we lost.
I am 26 years old I have played teams such as Celtic, Chelsea, Leeds, Manchester United, and more. As a manager not many can say that I know they were the youth teams but still it was great. Two more years pass and what can I say 1 league title and one final of the milk cup in them two years we lost 3-2 to Manchester united in the final and 3 of players went to England. I am on the up I know it, I want to be a manager in England.
People tell me 28 is too young to become a manager in England I tell them to shut the fuck up. Noting is impossible I look back to a quote of Michel Jordan (To learn to succeed, you must first learn to fail.”) And I know I will get a lot of no’s all I need is one yes so that is why I know I will make it.
