It's his second year in the job, coac- hing Power to winning the National Youth League last
season in his debut year, and the side is once again on top of the ladder this season.
And he can forget about the Easter break - he's taking a squad of 18 boys from Westfields
to tour Holand and England from March 30 to April 19.
Morgan became coaching director of the school's soccer program in late 1997 and is one of the
reasons why Westfields Sports is arguably the top soccer school in NSW.
The boys have won the Puma Cup for 10 years in a row, while the girls have been state
champions for seven years.
It's a position that's a fulltime job in itself, implementing a program to produce the best
soccer talent possible.
"There's a team of six, including a fulltime strength condirioning coach and Sydney United
defender and teacher David Barrett who's been there, done that, as a player, trying to do
the very best for the kids we have," said Morgan.
"I enjoy, seeing talented players going onto bigger and brighter futures, knowing that
you've played a part."
On top of that, there's also his commitments to Parramatta Power which involves several nights a
week and weekends. I leave home at 6am and don't come home until
8.30pm three night a week, then I spend the weekends coaching. It doesn't give me much time
for family," he said.
"I'm always having difficulty balancing between the two jobs. There are times where I wish
I had a week off to spend with my wife. But I love soccer with a passion. If you put in the
hours, you reap the rewards."
