FC Kansas City Announce Coaches

Today, FC Kansas City announced their first coaching staff for the new women's team.  The first head coach in the team's history is going to be the current Missouri Comets assistant coach, Vlatko Andonovski and his assistant coach will be Huw Williams.

Andonovski played 6 years in Europe before moving to the United States where he spent years playing in the NPSL and MISL.  After his playing career he's spent time as a youth head coach and director of coaching on a number of local youth clubs including Futura, Sporting Blue Valley ECNL, and KHMAC.  Andonovski will retain his job as an assistant for the Comets while also taking on the duties as a head coach for the women's side.

Williams is extremely well known in the KC youth soccer community, winning a number of state titles from the 80's through the 10's.  Like Andonovski Williams has spent a lot of time coaching locally and as a director of coaching. 

Going with local coaches that know the area would seem to point towards FCKC trying to have a distinct local feel to the squad.  There are a number of women in the US youth system that the team could appeal to, to bring in to the squad.  Now with the coaches announced the next things are the building off the roster and where the team is going to play.
