Footy Prime The Podcast

May 31, 2022

On this week's interview series episode, Cavalry FC head coach Tommy Wheeldon Jr. joins James Sharman, Craig Forrest, Jimmy Brennan and Brendan Dunlop. After a slow start to the season, the Canadian Premier League side has shot up the table with some impressive results and took MLS's Vancouver Whitecaps to penalties in their Canadian Championship quarterfinal earlier this month. 
The 43-year-old Englishman talks about the development of the game in Canada, why Canadians are a driver for change on and off the pitch, how to recruit players in a brand new league and managing players and people through a pandemic. They also touch on Sam Adekugbe's rise from Calgary Foothills FC to staring for the Canadian men's national team, Marco Carducci's testicular cancer survival story, and more.
Presenters: James Sharman, Craig Forrest, Jimmy Brennan, Brendan Dunlop and Dan Wong
