DM Coaching was created in 2010 by Daniel Murnane to give all children in the Axminster area opportunity to try and enjoy different sport, through local qualified coaches, creating strong links and path ways between the local schools and local sports clubs, to give children confidence to play sport during school, as well as in their free time. It was also there to unable local people the chance to learn how to coach and be supported, gaining valuable experience and getting qualifications.

DM Coaching is based at Cloakham Lawn Sports & Social Club (, the home of Axminster Town Cricket Club, Millwey Rise Amateur Football Club, Axminster Indoor and Outdoor Bowls Club. This is also currently where ‘DM Coaching School Holiday Camps and Sessions’ take place.
