U16 Eastern Challenge Coaching Staff Announced

April 5, 2023

Moncton, NB – Football New Brunswick is proud to announce the coaching staff that will lead our Under 16 Provincial Team at the 2023 Eastern Challenge. New Brunswick will once again have the home crowd advantage as we host the event at Mount Allison University from July 3-8.

The team will be led by FNB’s Director of Football Operations Jon Wilkinson. The staff will have a great mix of experience as well as Team NB alumni.

The Offense will be coordinated by Team NB and Mount Allison alumni André Goguen. Goguen is from Moncton and currently coaches the offense with the Dalhousie Tigers of the Atlantic Football League. Goguen will be joined by Dalhousie Tigers head coach Dave Kelly, who will serve as Team NB’s Defensive Coordinator.

The remaining staff are alumni of our programs such as Chase Clayton, Aiden Keefe, Alex Robichaud and Owen Dunfield. These young coaches will be a great asset to our U16 athletes as they learn from players who went through and competed in the same tournaments.

The U16 program will kick of next Friday night with the Planet Fitness Combine on April 14th.
