Tyrone Mears, New York Metro Regional Director
Tyrone Mears is NCE Soccer’s New York Metro Regional Director.
He is a vastly experienced former professional who enjoyed success with Premier League success with West Ham United, West Bromwich Albion and Burnley.
The former right back was came through the ranks at Manchester City, making his Premier League debut against Nottingham Forest in 2002.
He moved to Preston North End and was hugely impressive but appearances were restricted by injury, making just 70 appearances in four years including a stress fracture which sidelined him for ten months.
His performances earned him a move to West Ham before joining Derby on loan helping them to secure their place in the Premier League with promotion from the Championship by beating West Bromwich Albion in the Play-Off Final.
The pacy defender enjoyed three years at Burnley and then Bolton before joining MLS outfit Seattle Sounders, making 74 appears in two years.
Tyrone only hung up his pro boots at the end of 2019 and so brings a very current, thoroughly professional, and top-class pedigree to NCE Soccer.
He is studying a Master’s Degree in Sports Directorship and is due to finish his UEFA ‘A’ Licence, and has been coaching more recently at Manchester City’s Academy.
