The Baxter Soccer Club is excited to announce the signing of Chris Jones as the clubs Goalkeeping Coach for Season 2023.
Chris had a decorated goalkeeping career that included stints at clubs like Springvale City and Bentleigh Greens in the VPL, followed by 5 years at South Melbourne in the NSL including 3 appearances in the Club World Championships where he came up against none other than Manchester United and most impressively signed for Brighton and Hove Albion in 2002. When home, came back and starred for local club Langwarrin for many years.
Chris has coached at NPL level as a head coach at Springvale White Eagles, an assistant coach at Doveton and as goalkeeping coach at Langwarrin Soccer Club, and we are excited to add Baxter Soccer Club to that list.
His experience and knowledge of the game between the posts will be an invaluable asset to our club’s goalkeepers who are sure to improve out of sight under Jonesy’s tutelage next season.
We wish to official welcome Chris and his wife Lisa and family to the Baxter Soccer Club family.
