In our ‘Getting to know you’ series we will be introducing the coaching staff from the club’s youth development set up.

These are the coaches who will be looking to develop youngsters coming up through the youth section, to prepare them for senior football and provide a pathway towards the first team squad.


Glen Couchman - assistant manager for under-23s and manager for under-18s

Glen is a Level 2 qualified coach with 15 years experience coaching, scouting and developing various age groups, with clubs such as Sholing, Fareham Town and Gosport and Fareham School Boys.  

Now he is firmly established at AFC Portchester with ex team mate Mark Dugan, assisting him with the under-23s team, as well as joint manager with Shaun Hale to the under-18s side.  

Talking about his involvement in the youth development programme at the Crest Finance Stadium, Glen said: “Our aim is to produce the next batch of young talent for Mick Caitlin’s first team squad for years to come. 

“It would be great to see as many of you down at the Crest Finance Stadium next season to cheer us on.”
