Peter Jensen is Chairman, Coach, Fundraiser, Volunteer, Mash Up Co-ordinator and general factotum of Market Drayton Tigers FC. As well as managing his own Under 16s team, he has taken on two further sides, in order to stop them folding. His true passion is for coaching, where he is happy and always available to support other managers within the club, but can be found marking pitches, putting up nets, organising kit or serving food and drinks in the club house. He is happy to help in any way that is required. Peter runs weekly FA Football Mash Up sessions on behalf of the club, attracting about 20 players to every sessions, supporting his belief that everybody in the community should have the opportunity to enjoy playing football. His commitment to the club extends to every member of his family , probably because of Peter’s infectious desire for others to enjoy the game.
