Coach Keith Maisey

Assistant Coach

Senior Team 16s

Keith started playing football from the age of 5 at Margate FC. This was the start of over 30’s of playing at various levels. In between this time, he went back to Margate as a player and it was then when he first got involved with coaching by taking sessions with the academy to pass on his knowledge.

In his playing days Keith was very versatile and by the end had played or covered in every position but was known for his engine as a box to box midfielder. He believes the versatility is what has allowed him to understand the game in more depth.

Keith is excited to now take his passion of playing the wonderful game onto the training field to help encourage, develop and nurture aspiring young talent.

Psychology and the reading of the game is one of Keith’s biggest strengths when it comes to coaching. Being in the right positions at the right time and being able to communicate why.
