Welcome to EWSM

Eddy Whyte
After a short spell of both playing and coaching with Borussia Monchengladbach in Germany and PSV Eindhoven in Holland in the late seventies, I returned to the UK and created the football development programme SSD (systematic structured development) which is now used worldwide by many of the top professional clubs as part of their junior and senior player development structure.

Following on from that I later published The Grass Roots Report, Coaching Tools, and Kicking Into The Future, all of which led me into a football consultancy career, and in 2000 I formed EWSM.

I operate the UK base of EWSM (also located in Germany and the Netherlands) and offer a highly confidential consultancy service to professional clubs and players in the area of Technical Football Development.
