Joe Milligan & Kevin Maclaren founded Soccer HQ in August 2022. After volunteering in and around the Ribble Valley area for several years, both coaches had built an excellent reputation within grassroots football.


Coach Kev has a wealth of playing and coaching experience at nearly every level of the game from professional academies to semi-professional men’s football.

Kevin Maclaren
Coach Joe

Coach Joe has specialised in the younger age groups for many years; providing them with the best possible start as they begin their footballing journeys. Both coaches currently work with the Blackburn Rovers Academy.


Each session is meticulously planned to be as enjoyable as possible whilst improving every child who trains with us. Our passionate approach, energetic personalities and detailed technical knowledge provide us with the left platform to help young people get the best out of themselves.
