England U15 Boys head coach Billy Beddow today announced the addition of Team Solent Kestrels' Jack O'Keeffe to his coaching staff for the upcoming season.
O'Keefe joins fellow assistant coach Kelson Dickson, plus team manager Chris James, physiotherapist Jermain Franklyn and S&C lead Alex Ducasse, rounding out Beddow's staff.
The 29-year-old O'Keeffe is on a high right now after Solent's Under 16 Boys and Senior Men both won National Cup titles in Essex this past weekend, with O'Keeffe serving as an assistant coach for both programmes.
“I’m so pleased to add Jack to our staff," said Beddow when discussing the appointment.
"His character, skill-set and the calibre of teams he works with day in day out speaks for itself.
"The appointment strengthens our team and I can speak for Kelson, Jermain, Alex and Chris when I say we are all buzzing to get started.”
The U15 boys side are currently gearing up for their 2020 schedule, with two Manchester based camps in February and early April before an appearance at the Lions Cup tournament in Paris from 10-13 April.
An international camp and friendly games are scheduled for late May in Holland, with further action to be confirmed for the 27 & 28 June.
