Having trained with and been coached by Sue for over 20 years, I can honestly say she has influenced me in more ways than she knows. For someone to keep training under someone for such a long period of time speaks for its self. But her vast amount of knowledge is not the only reason why I have stayed by her side. Sue is an inspiration and for those who have not had the pleasure to meet her, you are are missing out.

Sue has dealt with some of the most unimaginable things life can throw at you, yet she manages to keep moving forward and taking others with her. She is a credit to the Liverpool community helping children from all walks of life to construct the building blocks of a stronger future.

When I was younger, Sue had faith in me and encouraged me to compete in events I never thought I could do. It was Sue who gave me the confidence and encouragement to succeed which has stayed with me ever since. It’s easy for people to say that they train with the best, but if you ever get the chance to be in sues presence and see the standards she produces, you will see that most only teach a standard level, Sue creates warriors that never give up. Here’s to another 20 years.
