Ciaran Toner is the co-founder of 4AllPlayers.
A UEFA Pro Licence coach, Ciaran has 17 years’ experience in the game as a player and 7 years’ experience as an elite coach.
Ciaran progressed through Tottenham Hotspur’s elite youth academy before playing a significant role in successful seasons for teams including Rochdale, Grimsby Town and Lincoln City as well as playing internationally for Northern Ireland.
Having experienced, first-hand, the lack of support provided to him to succeed inside and outside of the game he co-founded 4AllPlayers to help others create a future pathway for themselves.
