Three Kings United (TKU) confirmed on Monday the departure of Director of Football Paul Bateson.
Paul will remain within the football community, taking up a position as Junior Football Development Manager with New Zealand Football (NZF).
Since joining TKU Paul has devoted himself to the advancement of football within the club and local community, having delivered excellent results in coaching development, player development and pathways both in the club and local schools. His 2 year effort in advancing the club in the national junior and youth framework and club licensing criteria has seen success in TKU’s recent awarding of the NZF Skill Centre Licence, a first for any Auckland Club.
He leaves a number of excellent initiatives at TKU, ensuring the club has a solid platform from where it can drive further progress in the technical area of football.
Paul will finish with Three Kings United mid-July, with the clubs thanks and best wishes as he continues his footballing journey.
