Adrian Tucker

First Team Goalkeeper Coach - Sunderland AFC

Adrian Tucker joined the Swans as first-team Goalkeeper Coach in August 2009. 


Prior to his arrival at the Liberty Stadium Adrian worked for over 13 years with the Technical Department of the Football Association of Wales, The Welsh Football Trust (WFT). 


During this period his personal development progressed not just as a goalkeeping coach to the highest FA 'A' Licence Level, but he also become one of only three Welsh coaches to receive the UEFA 'Pro' Coaching Licence. 

 

Prior to a number of serious shoulder injuries, Adrian started a professional playing career at Torquay United before returning to Wales to play in the Welsh Premier League and achieved a Bsc Degree in Sports Science from the University of Glamorgan. 

 

Adrian has also had spells as the Goalkeeping Coach to the Wales National U16, 17, and 19 squads and became Team Manager of the Wales Women's National Team for a three-year period before increased commitments with Swansea City saw him relinquish the role. 

 

Now as a valued member of the backroom staff, Adrian's professionalism and work at Swansea City has seen him work with former senior goalkeepers Dorus de Vries and Jose Moreira and current keepers Gerhard Tremmell, David Cornell and Holland international Michel Vorm.
