Bob Off – Peeter’s Sacked From #CAFC – 11.01.15

CAFC tonight announced the departure of Head Coach Bob Peeters

Peeters joined at the beginning of the 2014-15 season, and had enjoyed some success in initial months, bringing in some quality signings, including Igor Vetokele, Tal Ben Haim, and Andre Bikey, Stephen Henderson, and Johann Berg Gudmundsson, as well as some others who have made less impact. However a number of Valley 'favourites' have departed over the last year including talismanic Yann Kermorgant, Dale Stephens, and in the summer Ben Hamer and promising youngster Diego Poyet, followed later by out of favour centre half Michael Morrison.

Bob's season started well winning a number of games, and remaining unbeaten for a near record number of games, and he had begun to become popular among fans despite the popularity of stop gap coach Jose Riga. Latterly injuries, and some rumoured failures to acquire another striker plagued his time at the Valley, exposing what some have suggested was a wafer thin squad.

Playing yesterday (Saturday 10th January) against a Brighton team low in the table at the Valley with a near fully fit squad, and new but only outfield January window signing so far - Duchatelet Network player Tony Watt. Peeter's team however, went down to a 0-1 loss leaving Peeters without a win in over 2 months.

Peeters is joined by Senior Professional Development Coach Patrick Van Houdt and Performance Analyst Guy Kiala.

The Supporters' Trust do not wish to comment at this time but await further news of his successor, and are keen to see the club return to winning ways. We wish Bob and his colleagues all the best for the future.
