Manisha Tailor, Founder of Swaggarlicious

As a teacher and coach I have an incredible power and that is the power to INFLUENCE.  To be in a position to positively impact the lives of others and re-shape the face of FOOTBALL is both EXCITING and INCREDIBLE.  Always remain true to your MORALS, VALUES and BELIEFS.  My twin brother is my INSPIRATION, but football is my HOPE and STRENGTH

The game has certainly changed over the last decade and women's football is gaining more popularity. However, there is still a huge under-representation of females especially those from a minority ethnic background. This is apparent within the men's game too.

Football & Mental Health Projects

Swaggarlicious’ Football & Mental Health project is designed to promote an active, healthy and independent lifestyle for those suffering from mental illness.

Our mental health and well-being impacts upon our everyday lives. One in four will experience a mental health problem, with 1 in 10 of those being young people.  We ourselves are most likely to know someone experiencing a mental health problem, however due to the stigma and discrimination experienced by

sufferers, they are likely to remain silent.  Mental illness can be caused by a variety of factors such as bullying, bereavement, domestic violence, neglect and emotional, physical or sexual abuse.

  • “Manisha is a top role model for women in football”

    Shelley Alexander
    BBC editorial lead on Women’s Sport
  • Manisha is a wonderfully dedicated individual who has a tremendous passion and desire to achieve in football. She will continue to progress and I have no doubt she will achieve all of her ambitions. Being featured on sky sports on numerous occasions, this is national exposure for a beautifully eloquent person who understands football. And that is not easy. As I have said before, skies the limit

    Troy Townsend
    Leadership and Mentoring Manager - Kick it Out
  • I read your blog with Female Coaching Network Manisha and you should be proud of what you have achieved. You are in your arena! In a position to fail everyday to an audience and you DO IT daily with confidence and execution. Well done as it is not an easy task. Not an easy option either. Not everyone can stand up in front of groups of people and deliver a session. Superb and respect.

    Kevin Randall
    Head of Academy at ‘Soccer Chance Academy’
  • Manisha Tailor is a strong and ambitious disability football coach, who is determined to make a difference to the lives of the under-privileged, using the power of football to enable social and confidence skills. When things don’t go her way she picks herself up and moves forward positively and by doing this earns the respect of many of her peers. Her organised approach to training reaches out to people of all ages and makes a significant difference to their lives. I feel very proud to have worked with her and seen her win many accolades for this life changing work. She is one of the highest skilled female coaches in the country. This is all down to her drive and ambition to keep learning and teaching. She is one of a kind.

  • Manisha is a selfless, inspirational individual, who has used her personal challenges to provide hope and guidance to others facing similar situations. Her integrity and passion are admirable and listening to her podcast really had an impact on me. Manisha, you should be really proud of all your achievements and you are living proof that if you really believe in something, you can achieve your goal’s despite the obstacles that you may be faced with.

    Raj Sangha
  • You are an inspiration in football, to not just women, but to everyone who has a vision and need guidance.
