Please Help Us Welcome Coach Nathan Watt

Shield Family,
I am thrilled to announce that Nathan Watt has accepted a position with Asheville Shield FC. Hiring coaches of his quality continues to show the clear intent that we at Shield have as we move forward.

After playing with Nathan at the collegiate level, I know that we share the same philosophy and am confident he will be a great fit for us here at Shield. I will look forward to placing Coach Watt with our younger players. He will be a key addition to our already well established coaching staff.


22 year old Nathan was born in England but lives in Australia. He played four years at Lees-McRae College (same as me), and was an All Conference and All Region performer. His coaching background in England includes setting up a youth section at Whitley Coast Soccer and a 6 month internship with Sunderland FC youth girls academy.

He holds FA Level 1, FA Youth module 1 & 2 coaching licenses.

Welcome to the Shield Family Coach Watt!
