I D Elite Soccer School is the brainchild of Dieter. His idea in early 2003 has been a fantastic success. Dieter is a fully F.A qualified coach who recently arranged for FA National skills coaches to attend ID Elite's holiday school's program.

Dieter also had a spell as player/manager of St Clements FC which saw the East coast club promoted in his first season in charge after an absence of 13 years. His one and only season managing in the 1st division saw a memorable victory at Springfield over reigning Channel Island Champions Jersey Scottish, before resigning to start I D Elite Soccer School.

As a player Dieter started out playing with St Pauls and was part of the successful team that won the Tregear Cup with Dieter scoring the winning goal in the cup final. Dieter has also played for Sporting Academics & Jersey Scottish football teams in the island and also captained St Saviours Parish to two successive victories to win the Trinity Shield in 2003 and 2004 which also included current Bristol City professional Brett Pitman. Dieter finally retired from playing at the end of 2004 due to a series of injuries.

I began coaching for I.D Elite in approximately late 2007. I have since attained my Level One coaching badge and also undertaken a new course, known as the "Introduction to age appropriate learning".

I am incredibly passionate about football and coaching. I watch lots and lots of football, live, on television, local and global. All of which drives my Mother up the wall.

I am a fan of Ipswich Town and although we aren't the best I still love them. I have a vast selection of football shirts, ranging from clubs in Turkey, England and several national shirts.
