FROM THE

CHIEF EXECUTIVE

T

he Capital One Cup final marks

the start of the ‘business end’

of the season and for the LMA

the 2014/15 season has been our

busiest to date. The relentless

sacking of managers and coaches

continues unabated, with 115 dismissed so

far this season. Against that backdrop, we

have continued to provide the best legal

and personal support for those managers

who lose their jobs and for their families.

We aim to manage the legal process

as quickly and professionally as possible,

limiting personal and emotional impact,

and to provide assistance and guidance

to managers seeking new employment or

personal development opportunities. To

that end, we have significantly expanded

our programme of support services

available to all our members over the last

10 months.

HEALTH AND WELLBEING

We take the health and wellbeing of our

members very seriously. The stress and

pressure that the job places on football

managers mean they are prime candidates

for a range of potentially life-affecting

illnesses and diseases. At the LMA’s home

at St. George's Park, we have expanded

our healthcare scheme, which now provides

first-rate cover for 222 people. With the

support of the Premier League, we have

also enhanced our Fit to Perform and

Lifescan regular healthcheck programmes

in partnership with Perform at St. George's

Park and have tested over 100 managers

and coaches since June 2014.

EDUCATION AND PERSONAL

DEVELOPMENT

Throughout the LMA’s membership there

is a thirst and passion for education and

continued personal development. Managers

in the modern game understand that

they need to continually improve, learn

new skills and challenge their thinking

in order to survive and succeed. The

2014/15 season has seen the LMA make a

significant new investment in its education

and personal development arm, LMA

Learning. Having researched in detail the

needs and requirements of our members

over their careers, we have designed an

extensive, bespoke programme of learning

opportunities, masterclasses, resources

and one-on-one programmes.

So far, we have:

• Delivered 14 one-day LMA Leadership

and Personal Development

Masterclasses on topics including

personal resilience, high-performance

teams, media strategy, diversity and

football finance

• Seen 304 managers and coaches

attend LMA Leadership and Personal

Development Masterclasses since

June 2014

• Seen 320 managers and coaches attend

LMA Technical Clinics since June 2014

• Delivered two new LMA 80-page guides,

on health and wellbeing and leadership

BENEVOLENT SUPPORT

Unfortunately, a growing number of

managers and their families experience

periods of significant turmoil. Issues

such as mental health, addiction, serious

illness or family and personal issues

can affect all of us, however strong we

may seem. The LMA makes every effort

to support members and their families

through difficult times and we draw on

some of the country’s leading experts,

clinicians and counsellors to provide

assistance, treatment or guidance.

Our world-class, 24-hour confidential

helpline is open to all our members and

their dependants and our Benevolent

Fund is currently supporting a number

of managers and coaches. While much

of this work is confidential or goes

unnoticed, for those involved it can be

life saving.

We have done a great deal in the

last year or two, but there is so much

more we can do. We are working on

building partnerships with the game's

stakeholders to further support the work

we do for the 1,000-plus individuals who

have chosen a career in elite level football

management and coaching.
