Sample Answer:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am Stephen Coombs and am very excited about a part-time football coach position now available with Bartley Green Football Club. I would be so proud to be a part of the team.

I have been a school Football Coach for over 12 years, most recently at Featherstone School, Birmingham where I brought the team Division ııı Championship for three years running. However, I have the knowledge of the technical side of football, plays, and sports psychology in spades. Moreover, I have a vast experience needed to plan and implement training sessions, organize practice, and to give pre-game and half-time motivational speeches.

Furthermore, I have the competence to assign the players to the position where they would be most effective, and to review the footage to look for the ways to develop the game. In addition, I can help guide the players and inspire them to pursue a career as a professional player and I always maintain high academic standards for the players as well.

It would be appreciated if you give me the opportunity as a part-time football coach at your club. I hope I can improve our region level players’ bench strength to our nation team. Anyway, I can start on 1 November, 2015.

I look forward to meeting with you.

Yours sincerely,
Stephen Coombs
