Portsmouth manager Danny Cowley has revealed to FourFourTwo that he misses being a PE teacher and working with young people to assist them in their development everyday, but social media helps him stay in contact with what his former pupils are achieving. 

Cowley enjoyed a modest playing career in non-league, before an injury in 2007 prematurely cut it short. However, he had graduated from the University of Greenwich in 2002, obtaining a bachelor's degree in Physical Education and was working as a PE teacher in an Essex school.
