Keola (U13 Knights)
The Jack Petchey award for October goes to Keola, the assistant coach of the U13 Knights.
Coach Naden said of Keola “ I would like to nominate our assistant coach Keola 19 years old for his outstanding commitment and contribution to coaching. He attends every Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday from Stratford, East London. He is always punctual, polite and brings amazing energy and enthusiasm. He is a young talent with complete dedication to coaching in a way that develops young people. Keola has inspired the players to achieve more, both by setting homework challenges and well planned training routines. It has been a pleasure to coach with him and I wanted him to be recognised with a Petchey award as this is the type of behaviour we want to encourage from our young coaches coming through the system.”
Well done Keola from all at Junior Reds
