Jamie coached me for most my schoolboy years after I joined Crystal Palace. He was my team manager for the first two years then coached me again at U15 after whilst I was at Oasis Academy. 

I really enjoyed playing for Jamie, his sessions were always detailed but fun and looking back they really helped me. He was very disciplined but always fair and well respected.

Ollie Bennett was in the same team until we were U18 and im not surprised he’s gone into coaching too.

Unique FA’s the best place for any young player who wants to improve, they are serious about development and I can’t recommend them highly enough!

“I had heard all sorts of good stuff about Jamie Waller, before he took me under his wing back as an under 13, and it was only 30 seconds into my first training session with him when I began to understand what everyone was raving about! Jamie helped me through probably the hardest time I’ve ever had as a footballer. All his sessions were planned exquisitely & every tactic seemed just right. His banter was the stand-out thing about him though and, even a few years on, he’s still able to have a laugh and a joke with the lads – but don’t get me wrong, if you step out of line he’ll tell you. But he naturally has that balance that lots of other coaches have to work for years to perfect!

The most important thing I’ve got to say to Jamie right now is a big thank you for that year that you took me on and brought my confidence and ability right back up to where it needed to be.

Wish you all the best in the future coach… Good Luck!”

Having worked with Jamie during my time at Crystal Palace FC I know he has had a big part to play in my development as a Goalkeeper. He’s a very passionate guy who loves to win and has great knowledge of football, which is very important when you’re a young player learning your trade. While Jamie was my coach the fun, exciting and challenging environment he set amongst the lads was brilliant! I won my first piece of silverware under Jamie which I still remember to this day!

I wish Jamie and the team at Unique FA well for the future! I’m looking forward to coming down and seeing all the lads at Unique Football Academy train and would recommend there set-up to anyone who’s serious about developing their game.

I worked with Jamie at Crystal Palace and took so much personally from working alongside him. His attention to detail and determination to improve every single player was a privilege to see.

Jamie’s programme at Unique FA is exactly what young players need to improve technically and tactically, a programme I would recommend to any young player who has a desire to improve.

It is great to see Jamie and his programme doing well, with lots of players being signed by professional academies. I wish him all the best going forward. Good luck mate.
