Technical Director

David Thorburn

David is recognized as one of the most – if not the most – qualified and successful Technical Directors in Canada, with over 30 years’ experience in soccer as a professional player, coach, manager, chief scout and international player agent. Thorburn has worked extensively in Scotland and England with clubs including Glasgow Rangers, Aberdeen, and Greenock Morton, and has been employed by the Scottish and English FA in youth development roles.
Before taking the reins at RFC, David turned Whitby Iriquois and Aurora Soccer Club into national champions out of Ontario.

 

“I’ve sent players to clubs as big as Chelsea, Southampton, Leicester City, Fulham, Crystal Palace, Birmingham City, and Aston Villa in the Premier League,” says Thorburn. “Locally, at the MLS level, I’ve worked with the Vancouver Whitecaps, Minnesota FC, Toronto FC to name a few. My goal is for every graduating player at the advanced levels to have offers for college scholarships and beyond. To make that happen, you need to do more than just make good players, you have to present them to scouts, you need a network that s extensive, and you need that network to know your club is serious.”
