'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Yates On License, Transfer Market & Nucleus

Mark Yates has spoken about a whole host of things in his recent interview, not least his own development as well as the development of the club.

After recently returning from Turkey in the quest for his Pro License Yates was back in at the club to catch up, and show his face because whilst it may be good to talk, a face is often better.

Speaking to the Official Site during that visit he explained about his trip to Turkey, and leaving his assistant in charge to work on plans they had thrashed out.

'It was good but hard work. It was all about performance management using different software and analysis. We had to analyse as well as profile them and that really was eye opening!'

With 21 on the course, they were split into groups and Yates had the pleasure of watching the Spanish U20 side.

He adds that the second task was to focus on a single player...

'It's all things that I do on a weekly basis but in a lot more depth using the iPads and it was really good.'

No doubt Yates will be incorporating what he learnt into his day job to further improve his own performance in the job, but ultimately that's what it's all about. Learning and applying especially as, unlike others, he has the job that counts.

He also says he'll finish the course this time next year, and then he'll be completely qualified, but obviously, you never stop learning.

Fans might smile when they realise he says one of the best parts of the course and trip was the interaction with other professionals 'talking football in the bar'.

I wonder why?

Another smile might come from fans learning that Yates was placed in the same group as Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs, but sadly he couldn't quite seal the deal on a loan move.

'Ryan was in my group and I had worked with him previously back in March on a coaching task. He was great although I don't think he'll be coming here next season!'

Obviously with Mark being away from the club assistant Neil Howarth has been woring on plans in his absence, but Yates can't wait to get back into the thick of it saying that the club have missed out on a couple of targets (no fault of Neil or him being away, it's football) but he's looking forward to playing his part in the deals he hopes will come off over the next fortnight.
