SJFA/SJFC Goalkeepers In Safe Hands


The SJFA continuously looks at developing the footballing ability of the boys. This includes the development of the talented goalkeepers we have within our ranks. We therefore want to thank our own FA Level 1 Goalkeeping Coach, Muhammad Tajri  for his great work with our boys across all the Tiers.

To support Muhammad and the boys further we have invited back our external goalkeeping coach, Mikhael Jaimez-Ruiz. Mikhael is an ex-Venezuela international goalkeeper, professional football coach and a sports scientist. He has also obtained his FA and UEFA B goalkeeping licences.

Mikael will provide support to Muhammad during the following sessions:

10 November
24 November
1 December
8 December

Mikhael has had an established playing career with clubs including CFR Cluj (Romania), Barnet, Aldershot and AFC Wimbledon.

After finishing with his playing career Mikhael moved into coaching including stints at Crawley Town FC, QPR, Aldershot Town FC and Watford FC Academy.

Mikhael in action can be found here.

Please welcome Mikhael at pitch side.
