Dear Mr Bernstein

After much consideration I have decided to apply for the vacant full-time position of

  • Football management and organisational experience? (Yes)
  • Knowledge of football tactics and coaching methods? (Yes)
  • Awareness and understand of the national team's history? (Yes)
  • Supporter of England's national football team since childhood? (Yes)

Additional Information:
