Micky completes UEFA Pro Licence

26 June 2014

Manager spends time at St George's Park to complete studies

Shrewsbury Town manager Micky Mellon has spent a few days this week at St George's Park, the FA's national training centre, completing his studies for his UEFA Pro Licence.

Micky said he had enjoyed the experience of working towards achieving the highest-level managerial qualification in European football.

He said his time at Burton allowed him to pick up new ideas which he can now consider using to benefit his role at the Greenhous Meadow.

Micky said: "When you're on the course doing your Pro Licence, you're mixing with people from the Premier League and abroad.

"You've got to be able to bring in any ideas off them that you think you can bring back to the football club. It's fantastic from that point of view.

"When you're at St George's Park anything that's current or anything that anybody's doing that seems to be working, you can make a judgement call on whether you can bring that back to the football club and introduce it to make it better all the time.

"Even if I wasn't on my Pro Licence I would still be looking for that knowledge and having conversations with people in order to make sure that we are continually moving Shrewsbury forward.

"We've had some interesting people from different sports talking about coaching and how they go about coaching different styles.

"If you can take anything off any of them in order to make yourself better and take ideas back to the football club to make it better than it can only be good.

"That's what I'm really keen to do, to make the football club the best that I can."
