Saadi joins AFC Bournemouth

J.Ellis Football are excited to announce that a well-known face at all of our sessions, Fawzi Saadi - has joined AFC Bournemouth as the U15's Lead Coach.

This follows on from the news last week that James Ellis has also made the same move to lead the U13's.

Across the 2022/23 season, Fawzi has been working in the Wessex Premier League as Christchurch FC's 1st Team Manager, achieving a 10th place finish. As a former player of AFC Bournemouth, Saadi went on to have a career at CR Belouizdad and local clubs such as Poole Town, Bournemouth Poppies & Blackfield - of which he later went to manage.

Saadi said:

"I am looking forward to rejoining the AFC Bournemouth Academy where I spent 8 years coaching. I have always felt AFC Bournemouth is my home and I can't wait to get back working, coaching & learning from so many amazing people, friends & fellow coaches".

Fawzi went on to say:

"My role will be the U15's Lead Coach, where I will get to work closely with the U16's & U18's coaches to try and help produce some young talents to the first team".

Saadi will link up with the club from August and will continue to deliver sessions at J.Ellis Football.

This once again reiterates our fundamental and core mission:

Supporting the grassroots game by providing professional coaching for all of grassroots football.

On behalf of all our members, coaches & partners - we wish Fawzi the very best in his new role.
