Winston J. Haughton
Coach Haughton is a players’ Coach!
He began his playing career in England, under the instruction of District and Regional coaches where he established a solid reputation as a budding player. As a developing player, he continued with the English Premier team Aston Villa and later as a Semi-Professional player in the English Combination Leagues.
Haughton coached in the UK with Birmingham City FC, an English Premier League Club. There he exhibited a keen eye for identifying top players and further developing players natural abilities. Many of his talented and exciting players continued in the game at various levels.
Coach Haughton earned a degree in Business and Sports Studies from the University of Wolverhampton. Following this he moved to the United States where he founded Elite UK Soccer LLC, a soccer training company.
Since his arrival in the States, Haughton has experienced multiple successes while coaching in club soccer, ranging from Youth level soccer to Senior High School club soccer. Along the way Haughton has guided several teams to multiple State Cup Championships whilst providing a comprehensive soccer background for many future collegiate soccer players.
The mantra of taking players to the “next level” is Coach Haughton’s corner stone. His vision is for all his players to “totally engage and to fully actualize their potential whilst playing as a cohesive and successful unit”.
Haughton prefers that players easily understand what he wants them to do because “during competition they need to be free to play from their gut instinct rather than within their head.”
“It helped me as a player to receive simple instructions so I could bring pre- game preparation into key moments on the field,” added Haughton.
Greater Lowell will be well prepared to apply this simple concept and to fight from the start.
