For any of you who would like to learn more about Suley's personal history and career:
Suley (full name Suleyman Doenmez) grew up in the small, rural village of Kemah in Eastern Turkey, where his love of soccer was born. With no structured teams or fields in the area, he played barefoot and on the streets while he was young. After moving away to a mountain village to become a teacher, he had his first experience of what would become a long and successful coaching career. Since arriving in the USA, Suley immediately began making a name for himself in the local soccer world. After earning his “A” Coaching License, the highest level available, he coached Keene High School, Keene State College and Franklin Pierce College, before being chosen as Head Coach of the first professional soccer team in the state, the New Hampshire Phantoms. After only a couple of years, the Phantoms were the Northeast champions 2 years in a row, qualifying for Nationals two years in a row in Albuquerque and Austin, coming in 4th and 2nd places nationally, respectively.
In tandem with his expanding coaching responsibilities and success, Suley was inspired to open his own soccer store. Having earned his MBA from Keene State College a few years before, he was excited to put his knowledge to use and to create a business that would cater to the local soccer community. His first store was located in Peterborough, NH; in 2003, he expanded to the store’s current location in Manchester, NH. With a huge network within the New England soccer community and an insatiable passion for the game, Suley takes great pride in providing high-quality soccer gear to local players and teams. Suley is always thrilled to welcome new and returning customers to his store, either online or in person. He loves to provide professional and friendly advice to all.
