Priya PV who herself was a footballer in her golden days. She represented the Kerala state football team from 1997-2009 and played mainly as a center-back and occasionally as a wingback for the team. Her father who was an ex-serviceman introduced her to the game in her early childhood. Since then football was her passion and she identified her call towards coaching at the final phase of her playing days.

After she retires from the sport in 2009, she went onto take a master’s in physical education from Calicut University. She later took a diploma in coaching from the National Institute of Sport, Patiala, and also grabbed her AFC C License in the following year.

Success was always in her footsteps as she guided the U14 women’s football team to lift the AFC U14 Championship trophy in 2012 and 2013. She was also the mastermind behind Gokulam Kerala FC (W) team as they went on to lift the Indian Women’s League trophy at their very best debutant season.
