The ISPPA team is led by ex-professional footballer (and Cup Winners Cup 1994, FA and League Cup Winner with Arsenal) Ian Selley. Previously the Head Coach of the Arsenal Academy Dubai, which he had built to become the largest soccer school in the Middle East, he has returned to the UK and is now focusing on providing high-quality academy-style coaching for all levels of ability.

During his time in the UAE, the Arsenal Academy Dubai won in excess of 38 trophies and tournaments through different age groups, from 6 to 16 years old. Ian has been able to do this by channeling the lessons he was taught by the great Arsen Wenger, George Graham, Kevin Keegan, Ray Wilkins, and others.

While still playing for the Arsenal Vets team and commenting on Arsenal TV and Radio, Ian wants to ensure quality coaching is available to players of all abilities.
