Sean Mooney: New Role Within Girls Academy at HJK Helsinki

Sean Mooney has landed an exciting new role in the Girls Academy at Finnish champions
HJK Helsinki.

The Scottish coach, a UEFA B Licence holder, is thrilled with the chance to broaden his horizons
working with a club who are traditionally seen as the powerhouse outfit in the Veikkausliga.

Sean revealed: “I am going to be working in the Girls Academy at HJK with the U15s age group
as well as the U18s B team.

“This is a dream opportunity for myself to go and coach in the Scandic region and one which I am confident will push me and my ambitions in football to the next level. It will be a great challenge but it’s one that I am prepared and ready for.”

Sean’s story is one of drive and determination and education. He holds a BA (Hons) in Football Coaching and Management and is now settling into his new challenge abroad. He said:

“I first reached out to the club regarding my aims in May this year and paid a visit in June to meet and present to them in person.

“To be told I would be heading to Helsinki to start in November gave me great joy and satisfaction. I must say a massive thanks to Academy Manager, Hans Lahti, for his show of faith and belief to bring me into the club from Scotland.”
