On Saturday 17th December after Fulham DFC's 3-5 beating by Refectory Sports, FDFC Guv stunned the FDFC dressing room by handing in a letter of resignation. His reasons for calling time on his two and a half year tenure at the club, since it was formed in 2003 was down to him being upset by the lack of discipline by the players on the pitch and the lack respect shown to him from the FDFC players.

Everyone at Fulham DFC is sad to see Christof go, and would like to extend a huge heartfelt thanks to him for taking us to where we are now, and shaping the club into one of the best run deaf football clubs in Britain. In Christof's short term at FDFC, he got the club onto its feet in super fast time, gaining promotion in the first season and bagging the British Deaf Cup as well as the Kingston & District League Teck Cup. In the 2003-04 season Christof took Fulham DFC to the British Deaf Cup final, and narrowly missed out on promotion to the KDL Premier Division.

We would like to wish Christof the best of luck in obtaining his FA Level Two Coaching badges, we sincerely hope Christof stays within deaf football in either a managing or coaching capacity, continuing his good work as he has shown great potential in his two and a half years at Fulham DFC, impressing many people inside and outside the club with his professionalism, drive and ambition.

Ayad Sarraf has been appointed as manager on a temporary basis, until a permanent solution can be agreed on. The club will now look to get itself back on its feet, and get back to its winning ways to continue the good work done by Christof to date, with priority being to ensure survival in the KDL Division One, and also to prepare for the visit to Motspur Park by the British Deaf Champions, St John Arsenal DFC on January 28th.
