MUFC Technical Director – Lee Tregonning
Lee was born in Aberdare, Wales and from an early age he both played and coached with the professional soccer club Cardiff City. Soccer was ingrained into him by his father who played professional Soccer. Lee went on to play with Cardiff City FC and Luton Town FC for several years, earning 22 international caps for his country. These games also gave him the opportunity to travel the world and see soccer’s cultural influences on a global scale.
Later, Lee joined the military, while playing soccer back at home at every opportunity. When family matters changed, Lee chose to remain closer to home and joined the Welsh Police Force. The South Wales Police FC and Welsh Police soccer teams both recruited Lee to come play for them, where they travelled the world for games and had many great successes over the years.
After several visits, Lee immigrated to Canada. He quickly became involved in the soccer community and started coaching in several clubs throughout the Lower Mainland. These clubs include: Vancouver Whitecaps FC, BC Soccer, Mountain United FC, North Vancouver FC, North Shore Girls FC, Play Active School Soccer (PASS), and his own elite soccer school, Europa Soccer Academy. Lee also still plays soccer with the Vancouver Police Department, and has represented BC Police in the North American Championships.
Lee currently lives On the North Shore with his wife, daughter and son, enjoys soccer daily for work & charitable work, as well as in his free time. Since arriving to Canada in 2008 Lee has also donated his time & skills to charity-based programs in both schools and women’s shelters throughout the Lower Mainland and has since become associated with Canada SCORES Vancouver.
