Kaakour’s appointment has been overseen by current Club Senior Coach and WFC Life member Grant Smith. At the start of the current season, Smith asked Kaakour to join the Senior Coaching panel at Westmeadows with a clear eye on the future.
Kaakour has already embedded himself in the Westmeadows way. “I just want to thank the Westmeadows FC for giving me the opportunity to work with such a young and talented list. It’s a great opportunity to be part of a club with such strong values. The club’s family first culture is felt from the Junior Program right through to both the Senior Women and Men’s teams.”
Season 2019 still holds much promise for the Tigers. In making this announcement while much is yet to be decided, we wanted to ensure that WFC supporters and sponsors are aware that we are ambitious and looking to a future that includes playing at the highest level
Kaakour is transparent about his plans and the way forward. “We finished bottom two last year – we always knew that we are coming from a long way back. It’s been a good year so far. Our aim is to complete this season in the best possible fashion and take that momentum into next year and beyond.
“The strategy is simple - we will work with what we’ve got and target players we feel are needed to bolster our list to be able to compete and then make the transition to the next level. Exciting times ahead!”
