Rising Stars New Assistant!

CFJFC is pleased to welcome to the club and initially to The Rising Stars – Michael Pilcher .

Michael started attending the Rising Stars early this year and has subsequently agreed to join the club and provide additional support to Jodie Crane and is keen to develop his coaching skills. He has completed his DBS Checks and the club will be arranging for him to attend all the required courses.

I hope you will all join me in welcoming him to such a great football club ⚽️⚽️⚽️

In Michael’s words:

” As a Coxheath resident and father of three girls, my eldest Elizabeth joined the Rising Stars in early 2017, and I looked into joining the coaching team later that year.

C&FJFC is my first foray into youth coaching, having previously been player/manager of several local men’s teams over the years. A desire to be involved in the beautiful game led to me forming my own team in 2000, aged 15. The playing side later took a backseat to spectating – I recently completed my mission to visit all 92 Football League grounds in England & Wales, a journey that took in excess of 24,000 miles.

Teamwork, technical ability and quick passing are all pretty important, yet I think the most critical part of playing football is often overlooked: enjoyment.”

Well said Michael and congratulations on your fantastic achievement
