Foundation Case Study – Meet Garylee And Steve

The penultimate case study of our series introduces Garylee Mullen, 18 from Wallsend and Steve Sharp, who delivers Premier League 4 Sport.

Like most Geordies, football was Garyleeโ€™s first love but when he found out about a new Premier League 4 Sport Badminton Club at his school he decided to give it a try.

Soon hooked, he attended every session before deciding to take a Level 1 Award in Coaching Badminton so he could volunteer alongside his coach Steve. With Steveโ€™s support he is proving to be an excellent role model and coach to other young people.

From an early age, Garylee showed a passion, talent and a hunger to get ahead. Choosing Tyne Metropolitan College to continue his love of the sport, Garylee, a Level 3 Sports Coaching and Fitness student and part of the college Badminton team, was recently awarded the โ€˜Young Sports Achievement Awardโ€™ which recognises over achievers for their commitment to sports and the community.

Steve Sharp has been a Level 2 Badminton Coach for 10 years and has been coaching on the Premier League 4 Sport project since 2010. As a qualified tutor Steve is also nurturing a new generation of coaches and players.

He said: โ€œWithout Newcastle United Foundation and Premier League 4 Sport we would not have found so many talented young players like Garylee. We have also been able to recruit 30 new coaches which is amazing.โ€

The Foundation runs 32 satellite coaching centres in Judo, table tennis, volleyball, basketball, badminton, hockey and tennis as part of Premier League 4 Sport which is funded by Sport England via the Premier League.
