Welcome to our football coaching company, where we offer top-quality 1-2-1 sessions in and around the Birminghal area. Led by ex-professional footballer Manny Smith, our sessions are designed to help you improve your skills and reach your full potential.
Led by Manny Smith, an ex-professional football player with over 17 years professional experience at Walsall Football Club, Notts Country Football Club, Gateshead Football Club and Wrexham Football Club. After retiring from professional play at the tender age of 32, Manny is eager to use his skills and knowledge to help children achieve their dreams of playing at professional academies.
Manny began his career at Walsall Football Club at the young age of 17. He first joined the Youth Academy, where he gained valuable insight into the life and responsibilities of a professional footballer. After 1 year in the academy, Smith signed his first professional contract with Walsall and made his debut with the first team at 19 years old.
A few years later, a promotion to League 1 and a Player of the Season Award, Manny signed another professional contract with Notts Country, where he spent two years honing his skills and gaining valuable experience at the professional level.
Once the two year deal had expired at Notts Country, Smith moved to Wrexham Football Club where he spent just over 5 years in total. He had a bried stint with Gateshead Football Club for one year but returned to Wrexham where he was forced to retire from professional football after suffering an unfortunate knee injury.
Manny Struggled with his mental health for a period of time but this experience inspired him to open his company. That is when LEXAYA was born.
Manny wanted to provide support and resources for young, up-and-coming footballers and make them aware of the roles, responsibilities and pressure that comes with being a professional athlete. He also wanted to help these children understand the importance of having a career plan beyond football and not just treating it as a dream.
We thank you for choosing LEXAYA for your coaching needs. We believe that Manny's extensive experience and proven track record make both him and LEXAYA the ideal choice to help you achieve your goals.
If you have any further questions or would like to schedule a coaching session, please don't hesistate to reach out. We look forward to working with you and helping you achieve success.
