Meet the coaches

Andy Woodcock (Owner & Head Coach)

Having begun managing youth teams at Kent League level aged just 19 years old, Andy then continued his coaching while travelling Australia. After returning to the UK Andy was given an opportunity to coach for the then Championship side, Gillingham FC. Here he managed the U16 Academy side and was the Centre of Excellence goalkeeper coach.

During 2006 Andy also joined J4K. He has established both North and South Kent regions and with over 12 different venues is now responsible for the development of an average of 300 students per week and has helped dozens of his students play at professional clubs! Andy left Gillingham in 2010 to take upa new role as goalkeeper coach for the U18 Academy at Chelsea F.C. while continuing to grow and improve the availability of J4K throughout Kent. Andy currently holds his FA Level II Outfield and FA Level II Goalkeeper Badges, as well as the UEFA B Licences, and last season started his UEFA A Licence while working as the manager of  Margate F.C Under 21 side.

Andy’s reputation locally as one of the top young coaches in his area and the opportunity’s that J4K provide for keepers has meant that the overall standard of goalkeeping in Kent has greatly improved over recent years.
