Paul Davis - Managing Director

Paul Davis is a man with a passion for football and education. With over 20 years of experience in the industry, he has established himself as a leading figure in the field. Based in Bicester, he started the ACE Football Academy in 2017 with the aim of providing high-quality sports education to the next generation. However, his vision went beyond just teaching sports. Paul was determined to inspire his students to achieve great things, and to provide them with varied career options that extended beyond the world of sport. Paul’s experience in football is not limited to teaching. He has also had a successful career in semi-professional football as a manager. He has worked with a range of semi-professional football clubs, and during his time as manager of Stratford Town FC, he led the team to a successful run in the FA Cup, securing the club’s place in the first round proper (the highest position in the club’s history). In addition to his work in football, Paul has also been delivering physical education in both primary and secondary schools. This has enabled him to build strong relationships with the wider community, which has played a vital role in ensuring that his students have access to a wide range of career choices. Paul’s dedication and passion for football and education are evident in all that he does. He is excited to continue to grow and develop the academy, and to inspire the next generation of young people to achieve their dreams.
