Today we go behind the scenes in football with Adrian Bevington.

There are very few people better qualified to talk about what’s really happening in the corridors of power at a national level and within the club game.

Adrian is best known for his work at The FA over nearly two decades, first as the go-to comms guy and then as managing director of Club England, a role he held for five years till 2015.

During his period at the FA he worked with seven England managers Howard Wilkinson, Peter Taylor, Kevin Keegan, Sven-Göran Eriksson, Steve McClaren, Fabio Capello and Roy Hodgson. and worked with several chief executives, including Brian Barwick, Adam Crozier and Ian Watmore.

Adrian was born in Middlesbrough and started his career at ICI as a trainee reporter on the company newspaper C&P News in 1987. He is a lifelong fan of his hometown football team Middlesbrough Football Club, whose media team he later joined.

He has also written books on the club, one with fellow press officer Dave Allen, "From Doom to Boom: The Most Dramatic Decade in the Life of Middlesbrough FC" published in 1996), about the dramatic rebirth of the club following their financial woes in mid 80s. In 2018 Bevington moved back to his hometown and became Middlesbrough’s Head of Recruitment Operations a role he left at the end of last year.

Adrian Bevington, a familiar name to anyone working in the UK football business, is the featured interview on this week's SB Weekly.

Adrian was Director of Communications at the English Football Association and Managing Director of Club England, the position that oversees the operations of every England football team.

In the latter, he oversaw the management and operational support services of all England teams, and helped develop the female game, bringing an England women's match to the new Wembley for the first time in November 2014.

Adrian left the FA two years ago and now runs his own wide-ranging sports consultancy, spending this summer at the Euros working as a consultant to the Football Association of Wales.

In this week's episode, hear Adrian discuss:

  • His work with the Football Association of Wales, a fascinating month in France, and why he was impressed with Chris Coleman's leadership style
  • Why Sam Allardyce is, in his opinion, a good fit for the England job and will bring a refreshing new mindset to the FA set-up
  • The challenges running English football clubs, seen first hand through his consultancy work with Watford, Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa
  • His views on Tracey Crouch's recent criticism of the FA and its need to reform
  • A burning desire to turn his hand to club football full-time as a CEO
  • The huge opportunity presented by the growth of football in China and India.
