SJFC Appoint New 1st Team Coach


Salaamun Alaykum

We are pleased to share with you the appointment of Abrar Mahay as the new Head Coach for the 1st Team.

Abrar is currently the Assistant Head Coach of Southall Athletic Football Club Under 23s and previously was a pivotal member of the team that set up the Juventus Football Academy in Kuwait and UAE. During his spell in Kuwait and UAE, Abrar was also a youth Head Coach.

Abrar is a qualified FA level 1&2 coach and is working towards UEFA B coaching badges.

I am also pleased to formalise the appointment of Hussein Pirbhai Jr as the Assistant Head Coach. Not only a 1st Team captain and leader on the pitch, Hussein is a qualified FA 1 and 2 Coach which he has put to good use with the youth set up.


I would ask you all to welcoming and congratulating both Abrar and Hussein JR on their new roles.

As we transition to the new coaches, further information will follow from Abrar, Hussein JR & the SJFC Adults Admin Team  on the way forward and their expectations under the new coaching leadership.

With our first fixture scheduled this Saturday (14 August), Hussein will be in responsible managing the team on the day.

I would like to put on record our appreciation to Ali Kamal and Ray for their support and our development over the last 2 years.

Please let’s remember each other in our duas.
