SEAVIEW GARDENS FC History

In 1983, Mr. Earl Pinto, Mr. Norman Wallace, Mr. Paul Douglas and Miss Veleisha Dean started the Seaview Dynamics Youth Club with its meeting place on the veranda of Mr Pinto’s Seaview Gardens residence.

The Dynamic Youth Club entered the Red Label Wine Second Division in 1985, being promoted to Division 1 after 3 attempts. Despite finishing next to last the following season, they managed to survive the league for 8 years. The high point of that period was a 4th place finish in 1993 and winning the Division1 in 1994 under the guidance of Donovan Muir .

After a number of years in the KSAFA Syd Bartlett competition, Seaview Gardens FC then gained promotion to the Major League in the 2005/06 season under the guidance of player/ coach Winston Barnes.

In the 2006/07 season, Seaview Gardens got off to a brilliant start staying in the top 4 for the first month ,and after 6 weeks had statistically the best defensive record until they stumbled and ended up on a 3 match losing streak before finishing 3rd behind Mona and Cavalier that season. A 5th place finish the following season gave some hope for football in the community ,so they appointed coach Michael Francis for the 2008/09 season.

Miss Tamara Williams Seaview Gardens FC head coach
Seaview Gardens FC, suffered relegation from the Major league under the guidance of Coach Francis.

In the 2009/10 season, Miss Tamara Williams was appointed the team’s head coach .

She created a double history by leading the Club to its first KSAFA title,- the SYD Bartlett Trophy, as well as becoming the first woman to successfully coach an all men’s team to a KSAFA Championship.
