Men's Futsal 2016-17
Alan Gillespie, Head Coach of the Ambrose Lions Men’s Futsal team, is originally from Campbell River, B.C. He started out with a love for soccer at a young age and played with rep teams, metro teams, and the B.C. development program in his youth. While he attended Columbia Bible College from 2001-2006, he lead the team to two city championships. After college, he continued playing semi-professionally with the Abbotsford PDL program. Alan was always willing and ready to take the sport to the next level; which made it a natural progression to take on a coaching position with Columbia Bible College for 2 years. In those 2 years, Coach Gillespie lead the team to a second place and first place finish in the city league. Alan is now going on his third year as the Head Coach of the Men’s Futsal team at Ambrose University, where he has lead the team to their first ACAC finals, as well as back to back fourth place finishes.
Outside of coaching Alan is a manager at a property management company, a loving husband and father who believes that a strong loving family is the beginnings of greatness, which reciprocates into his coaching.
